Requested move[edit]

This article should be moved in accordance with Wikipedia's naming policy, WP:UE, to the commonly used English name. Although sometimes called by the French name in English for added cachet, Saint Helen's Island is the usual English form.

It sounds to me like this is close to the national differences issue. What do Quebeckers call it? Septentrionalis 22:44, 23 July 2005 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot to sign my recommendation for the move. I am a Quebecer (a native English-speaking one- we do exist ;), and I can tell you that both names are used, although it is impossible to say which is used "more", but Saint Helen's Island is what we consider the English name --Larineso 23:15, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. If an English name exists it should be used. – AxSkov (T) 03:49, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Support- just in case it wasn't clear, as I hadn't explicitly said it.. Larineso 23:53, 27 July 2005 (UTC)

This article has been renamed after the result of a move request. violet/riga (t) 17:10, 4 August 2005 (UTC)


I think it may appear more clear that this is not the Saint-Helena island of Napoleon, which have the same name:
