Names survey, result
Between 23 December 2006 and 28 January 2007 there has been a survey about which names the articles for the municipalities in the Brussels region should have. The municipalities in question have different names in French and Dutch, the two official languages of the region. A majority of contributors to the survey prefers using one single same over using both names in the title. This single name should follow English usage, which has been determined using domain specific Google searches.
The final result of the survey is that:
- for the following municipalities the French name has been chosen, in line with the most commonly used names in English:
- for the following municipalities no significant preference in the English language has been found. After discussion, the Dutch names have been chosen:
Sorry, nothing to do with any language preferences, but where the article name is already decided, this should be the 1st on the order of the 1st line. All respect to the Vlams name and history (I used to live happily in Zaventem), but it just looks illogical and wrong to have inconsistencies between the article name and Introduction. I think Talk:Brussels-Capital Region/NamingArchive3 applies here also. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:04, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
