Electorate of HessenElectorate of Hesse – Common english name. DrKiernan (talk) 08:25, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose Electorate of Hesse is an anachronism. The title is not dependent upon what's the common name nowadys, the name of the Electorate was Hessen and should be referred to as it's correct name.-Ilhador- (talk) 11:42, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Your argument is the same as: "Germany is an anachronism. The name of the state is Deutschland and it should be referred to by its correct name."
Besides, it's "Hesse" in Hessian. DrKiernan (talk) 15:05, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
