I moved this page because it's Wikipedia policy to use the most common term for something. This is applied throughout our encyclopedia for establishing the titles of the articles.
So, it's not hard to see that "Eastern Anatolia Region" is a much more common form:
- Results 1 - 10 of about 17,900 for "Eastern Anatolia Region"
- Results 1 - 10 of about 932 for "East Anatolia Region"
Or, if you trust printed books more:
- Books 1 - 6 with 7 pages on "Eastern Anatolia Region"
- Books 1 - 4 with 4 pages on "East Anatolia Region".
Serious error in this article?
Doğu Anadolu Bölgesi/East Anatolia Region is not a political or census-defined division, it is a geographical division and has four sub-divisions (Upper Murat Van region, Erzurum-Kars region, Upper Firat region, and Hakkari region). Its borders do not follow the borders of the political/administrative/census regions of eastern Turkey - so the Wikipedia entry for Eastern Anatolia Region is incorrect in that aspect.

Eastern Anatolia region has been originally known as Western Armenia in numerous sources, including Britannica Encyclopedia. I have undid deletion of this data from the article several times, each time giving sources and footnotes, but every time found the article changed in a couple of days without any basing facts, if not taking into consideration the fact of calling me a nationalist (!). If the fact I provided the data proved by uncountable number of sources, starting from middle-age historians and international maps up to current historians and encyclopedias is nationalism, then I doubt objectivity of Wikipedia. If considering the fact not worth to mention in the article, then I should say it is as worth to mention, as the fact that e.g. the city name ]]Kaliningrad's]] original title was Königsberg, Nagorno-Karabakh's was meant under Artsakh, huge part of modern Romania was meant under Transylvania, etc. Now I'm undoing the latest deletion. Thanks to everybody, who read and understood! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 517design (talk • contribs) 21:08, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
- Your information is basically an ideology of a greater Armenia. Another form of propaganda that is why I am removing it. Justinz84 (talk) 20:05, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
History section on region
It's not possible, official name of the region is Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey, if someone dreams for a highland Armenia with a population less than 5000 it's so funny. And the pictures have to change because there are no only Armenian churches in this region. There must be more information about the region, not about for Armenia!Zaparojdik 12,25 (UTC) 13th January 2010
