·Removed the mention to the Spanish unofficial toponym since it's irrelevant to the scope of the English Wikipedia.


I've elliminated "SAN BAUDILIO"[edit]

I'm not english and so I don't speak this language as well as I would like. I've elliminated the Spanish name "San Baudilio" because it's a name imposed by the fascist dictatorship of Franco, and nowadays it isn't used at all by the citizens of this city and by all around the country. Its official and only used name is "Sant Boi de Llobregat", which we say "Sant Boi" because it's shorter, but never "San Baudilio".--Asfarer (talk) 14:15, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

What that the name "San Baudilio" was imposed by the Franco dictatorship is false, as demonstrated in these data from INE (National Statistics Institute of Spain) showing that in 1842 and was called in Spanish "San Baudilio". MiguelAngel fotografo (talk) 19:31, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
In 1842, Catalan was prohibited from the public affaris, it was relegated to the informal conversations (private life). Nor you could check in the Generalitat archives if they called "San Baudilio".
