  • See my comment above, suggesting that Foo (bar) is not usual for cultivars. It is more typically named as Foo bar. EdJohnston (talk) 04:01, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose – the linked category is very mixed. The "natural" disambiguation seems preferable to the "parenthetical" usually. Dicklyon (talk) 19:49, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. My natural instinct was to oppose, because to me they would naturally be called "Gala potato", but a review of varieties of potatoes gives none of them followed by the word potato,[1] [2] although one is called a Rose Finn Apple. Not so for sweet potatoes which include Sweet Potato in their name.[3] The Russets include Russet in their name. There is a well known Gala (apple) Apteva (talk) 07:10, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per EdJohnston; adding a parenthetical suffix is a bad idea if there's a more natural way of making the title unique. If few sources say "Gala potato", well, what other name do they use? We should go with whatever name is preferred by sources and I very much doubt that it's "Gala (potato)". bobrayner (talk) 14:09, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose as per WP:NATURAL, we should use a naturally disambiguating name, rather than parentheses. Zarcadia (talk) 17:23, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose I share the IP's desire to see standardization, but I'd rather see such standard names disambiguated naturally. --BDD (talk) 23:05, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
