Blar Nam Feinne[edit]

Just wondering if anyone can comment on this RCAHMS report on Blar Nam Feinne just west of Inverness (grid reference NH595433, which reports a local tradition of a battle there between "King Malcolm" and Thorfinn in the early 11th century. Reports seem to vary between Malcolm winning to dying. :-))) Le Deluge (talk) 17:54, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Silly naming convention[edit]

In English, Malcolm is the name which is almost always used to refer to this monarch. While foreign versions of the name can and should be mentioned for informational purposes, his common English name should be used in English wikipedia since it is much more readable.

Agreed - use common English name on English wikipedia. Greenshed (talk) 01:25, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
