The result of the move request was: procedural (or pussyfooted) relisting. This article is included in the multi-move proposal at Talk:Emir Talal Arslan#Requested move 2. Please continue the discussion there. Favonian (talk) 16:21, 25 June 2012 (UTC)


Emir Majid Arslan IIMajid Arslan – This is an honorific title that has no relevance in Lebanon. In their own clans, in this case the Druze community, they may be referred to "Prince" or "Emir" as a respect, but this individual is not actually a "Prince" in the legal sense. He is just titled "Mir Majid" or in classical Arabic "Amir Majid Arslan" as an honorary "figure of speech". Naming him Majid Arslan II is even more bizarre and totally unacceptable. Use disambiguations in case there are more than one Majid Arslans, not Majid Arslan I, Majid Arslan II or Majid Arslan III. Since this particular individual is the MAIN known Majid Arslan, I suggest main for him as Majid Arslan and the others can be given using the additional paternal name such as the case of Majid Talal Arslan which actually exists... without being called Majid Arslan III werldwayd (talk) 12:17, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Support per naming conventions of royals and what already happened at Talal Arslan. Also consider this a support for the other two articles you've requested a move for. Next time, go for a multiple page move. --BDD (talk) 15:55, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Incomplete article[edit]

I had added the incomplete tag, as the article mostly stops in 1943 with the Lebanese independence, while Majid Arslan died in 1983, and information about him later than 1943 is few, for example, what was his role in the Lebanese civil war?.--HCPUNXKID (talk) 15:02, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
