Name[edit]

Right under the page title, you write that Veleda is not to be confused with Velleda. It seems that, according to you, the spelling with one "l" is reserved for the historical character, while that with "ll" is for names and things inspired by the previous one. Actually, in modern editions of Latin Texts mentioning Veleda/Velleda (e.g. Tacitus) the spelling varies according to the publisher's taste, so that it would probably be a good idea to mention the double naming in the article, rather than warning people off from confusing two persons who are in fact the same one! I apologise for the possible grammar mistakes (English is not my first language) and for not signing the comment (since I don't have an account). 192.167.204.6 (talk) 12:42, 25 March 2009 (UTC) Gaia

I think I cleaned it up a bit. You should have a look and comment. –Holt (TC) 13:26, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
It looks way clearer now. The only thing anyone could still complain about is that, from the "Veleda" page, the reader will not understand that there is an alternate spelling to the name Veleda (rather, he would gain the idea that there are other, different entities named "Velledas"); but it's most likely not even worth complainig!Yhank you for fixing it so quickly! 192.167.204.6 (talk) 00:26, 26 March 2009 (UTC) Gaia
And thank you for making me aware of the confusion. Feel free to edit the pages to make things even clearer. Remember; be BOLD! –Holt (TC) 19:57, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Weleda redirect[edit]

Weleda redirects here, but shouldn't that article instead be about the cosmetics company? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.253.91.16 (talk) 19:32, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
