Earth trojan asteroidEarth trojan – Appending "asteroid" is unnecessary. Removing it will also bring this article's title more in line with the other articles on classes of trojans. --JorisvS (talk) 20:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC) JorisvS (talk) 20:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Support. Yes, 'trojan' is a noun, after all. Rothorpe (talk) 00:45, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. "Trojan" has other meanings. Keep the word "asteroid" in the name for clarity. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:22, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
    Comment. You think that any of those can be combined with the name of a planet and still make sense? There is no ambiguity when "asteroid" is left out. --JorisvS (talk) 14:02, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Support They are asteroids, but "trojan asteroid" isn't how they are commonly referred to, and there obviously is no ambiguity. —innotata 16:18, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Earth trojan is the common name, and there is no need to disambiguate it. Andrewa (talk) 06:55, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
