Well, in the context of the crusades that is certainly true (although I'm sure I see "Jorsafalar" just as often), but he was king of Norway and many other important things happened during his rule. It's normal on Wikipedia to use the "[Name] [Number] of [Country]" for kings, even when they do have other names (see Richard I of England for example...there are often move requests for him too). And Sigurd isn't like Sweyn the Crusader, who wasn't a king and is only known by his nickname. Adam Bishop (talk) 08:47, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
And rightly so - the former convention seems to be largely a Wikipedia invention. However, the real question is - what is the common name in reliable sources? It would seem to be Sigurd the Crusader from this evidence. BenMacDui 07:55, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

I'd be interested to hear if anyone can provide a source for the statement: "he was also styled as King of Mann and the Isles". There is little doubt he became a ruler of the Kingdom of the Isles, albeit temporarily, but the titles of these rulers were very varied as you can see from the list.
