Surely this ought to be "[ == Nabatean"? [[User:Palmiro ==]|Palmiro]] | Talk 13:45, 8 October 2005 (UTC)
There is an by Friedrich von Flotow called "Martha". It has nothing to do with the biblical Martha, but maybe it should be mentioned in an disambiguation page. --22.214.171.124 09:19, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Attempted redirect to Martha of Bethany
For some reason, User:StAnselm insists on re-directing a generic name to one biblical figure. That makes no more sense than if some other user wanted to re-direct the page to Martha Washington. Every other common name, when typed into a wikipedia search bar, goes to a name page, and those pages often have lists of notable people who have that name. The name Martha is certainly no different. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArchieOof (talk • contribs) 05:32, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
- This is a little disingenuous; you are currently involved in an edit war with StAnselm on very subject, having made an un-warranted page move here.
- I suggest you read, with profit, WP guidelines on consensus and the importance of working in a collaborative manner. Moonraker12 (talk) 18:10, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Just in case anyone feels the need to suggest it, it might be helpful to give my reasons why I oppose a move to Martha of Bethany:
- Although her sister is known as Mary of Bethany to distinguish her from other Marys, this person is most commonly known as "Martha" - WP:COMMONNAME
- The article gets 300 hits per day, while the disambiguation page gets 20, which suggests that most people typing in "Martha" are looking for this person - WP:PRIMARYTOPIC
- The phrase "to be a Martha" is well attested.
- Many other biblical characters have articles named with just their mononym: Sarah, Rebecca, Dorcas, Abigail, Deborah, Esther, Isaac, Jacob, Joshua, Rachel, Leah and David.
- Very few of the people at Martha (disambiguation) are referred to by the single name "Martha".
I agree, edit war or not, linking to the Biblical Martha makes no sense, it's not referring to the Biblical Martha (I'm pretty sure).
