Clean-up[edit]

I wonder: Has this article been cleaned up? The plot summary is already interpreting... --Ssrkhrsechu (talk) 14:30, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Your help is appreciated. I don't think this page gets much action... --Midnightdreary (talk) 18:04, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Primary name[edit]

Presently, in English Wikipedia Morella's primary meaning is a short story by 19th century American author Edgar Allan Poe. I think though that Morella, Spain deserves the primary meaning, for that city existed centuries before that, so that present "Morella" should be renamed Morella (story) and Morella, Spain should be under "Morella" in order to avoid ethnocentrism.

The Spanish are huge fans of Poe's work too. I'd support the creation of "Morella (short story)" but I'd recommend "Morella" become a disambiguation page. --Midnightdreary (talk) 18:01, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
I was directed here from Myricaceae looking for Morella pensylvanica. I'm a fan of Poe, but never heard of this story. Morella, Spain looks beautiful, but is a city of less than 3,000 people. The Bayberry is far older, and being a Latin scientific term would make it the obvious choice to avoid ethnocentrism. However, I do agree that Morella would be best as a disambiguation page.Jojuko (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:32, 11 March 2011 (UTC).
And it's been done. --Midnightdreary (talk) 16:23, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
