Patriarch Gennadios I of ConstantinopleGennadius of Constantinople — Disambiguation by title is unecessary as no other individuals share the exact name. WP:COMMONNAME for both officials. Gennadios Scholarios is equally as acceptable as Gennadius Scholarius for Patriarch Gennadios II of Constantinople Labattblueboy (talk) 19:41, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

  • I really don't have an opinion on the first, although per WP:NCWC the existing name is OK. For the second though, I would support a move to Gennadios Scholarios or Gennadius Scholarius, which is the name he is most commonly referred to by (overwhelmingly so in Greek). I definitively favour the former form, given the more recent & growing trend of using the Greek-transliterated forms and not the Latinized ones for names of the Byzantine era and beyond. Constantine 17:59, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Agreed. On a second look (corroborated by the GoogleBooks search), Gennadius I would also fall under naming style for saints, so the form Gennadius of Constantinople is perfectly acceptable. Constantine 19:48, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
