Apostrophe?[edit]

What's with the apostrophe in the state name? As discussed ad naseum, the island officially has an ʻokina, but the convention elsewhere on wikipedia was to omit it from the state name. W Nowicki (talk) 18:14, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Support. Works for me. Consistency is a Good Thing. howcheng {chat} 18:19, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. And while we're at it, we should address these too.-Travis Thurston+ 19:29, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Lets not. Some of these like Pa'ao, which is really Paʻao, have the okina instead of an apostrophe. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:13, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Support per WP:UE (use English) and WP:UCN (use common names). More generally, there is the issue of the widespread use of placenames with ʻokinas and macrons in Hawaii-related articles that does not reflect common, English usage. Guidelines such as WP:HIMOS should be consistent with policies such as WP:UCN (use common names). —  AjaxSmack  04:41, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
