Untitled[edit]

According to the article a posthumous name is given only to royalty. I thought that all Buddhists received a posthumous name -- certainly Sen no Rikyu wasn't royalty, and he has one. Can anyone clarify? Exploding Boy 05:38, 17 May 2006 (UTC) In fact, the posthumous name isn't the name give to a dead emperor, but a posthumous title to call him respectfully. Am I allowed to move this article to "Posthumous title"? ^_* ——Nussknacker胡桃夹子^.^tell me... 16:19, 8 June 2006 (UTC) Exactly speaking, Father of the country is never the posthumous name of Sun Yat-Sen. Posthumous name must be given strictly according to the Law of Posthumous Title. ^_* ——Nussknacker胡桃夹子^.^tell me... 16:27, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

How about a mention of Fight Club? "In death, we have a name. That name is Robert Paulson." 63.145.155.66 19:41, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Uh, why? --Nlu (talk) 19:00, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Uh, maybe as an example of the recognition and use of a posthumous name in a contemporary Western cultural reference. Boneyard90 (talk) 11:53, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Default posthumous name?[edit]

Is it true that when a king dies, he is given a default posthumous name of 大行 before he is given an official posthumous name by his successor? An example is Le Hoan, after he died he is known as Lê Đại Hành (黎大行) because his successor neglected to give him a posthumous name. DHN 22:17, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

You are right.--刻意(Kèyì) 18:52, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Japanese Title[edit]

I saw this page earlier and noticed that the Revised Hepburn romanization of the second hiragana transcription did not match the hiragana at all. Currently, the second hiragana is おくりな, which would be "okurina" in any Japanese romanization scheme, but is written as "tsuigō". However, my Japanese dictionary does attest to a word romanized as tsuigō, but in kanji it is written as 追号, which is different than the only set of kanji given, 諡号 (shigō). I also want to point out that okurina is not an alternative reading of the kanji 諡号. In fact, okurina is the kun'yomi reading of the first kanji 諡, though it also appears as the compound 贈り名 (which still has the meaning of "posthumous name"). As the Japanese Wikipedia article linked to by this article uses 諡 and おくりな as its title and refers to the same Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese terms for this concept as the English article, I am inclined to believe that 諡 (おくりな) reflects a more general idea of posthumous name.
