Welcome to the Ethiopia WikiProject. We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to Ethiopia. The goal of this WikiProject is to provide complete coverage on subjects related to Ethiopia by expanding articles on people, places, and things related to Ethiopia. This project and its subprojects contain suggestions that should help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, become a member. Then look through the tasks or join one of the specialized departments below.

Tasks

  • All members should always feel free to patrol the recent changes list to note improvements, other changes, or vandalism of articles within the scope of this project.
  • Mark articles related to Ethiopia with {{WikiProject Ethiopia}} in the talk page of the particular article:
    • WE HAVE A NEW ADDITION TO THE TEMPLATE! You can now assign an article to a department (check template documentation for specs).
    • MAKE A HABIT OF UPDATING THE TALK PAGE of every Ethiopia-related article you visit. Update the templates: add class, importance, department. Also remove the Ethiopia=yes from the WikiProject Africa templates to unclutter and stop double tagging.
  • Check the alerts above and join the review or reassessment of any articles listed. This list is auto-generated and should not be edited.
  • Fix any of the redlinks listed on this page. You can do this by creating the article or change the articles to link to the appropriate articles or sections of other articles.
  • We need to start a list of encyclopedia articles directly relevant to this project at exhaustive list of articles. This list should include all substantive articles in print encyclopedias relating to this topic that are not covered by Wikipedia.
  • There maybe a more detailed list of tasks here.

Ge'ez script - Short Version

Proper names

Ethiopians commonly use their fathers' given names as patronymics after their own, e.g. Robel Teklemariam means Robel, the son of Teklemariam. Sometimes their father's father's name appears in third place, but this style is usually for official documents; only in rare circumstances would Ethiopians adopt their grandfather's name as a last name for common usage. Note that if the name is Amharic, it does not imply that a subject is a member of the Amhara people, as many other groups also use Amharic names.

Many Ethiopian names are compound nouns in Ge'ez, for example "Zara Yaqob" which means "Seed of Jacob". He should not be referred to as "Zara" or "Mr Yaqob" -- unless this unusual usage can be verified in a reliable source, which then needs to be added to the relevant article.

Ethiopians, especially in the West, will frequently adopt their own transliteration scheme for styling themselves, that does not always correspond to any of the various schemes employed by linguists. Whenever proper names become notable under such ad hoc spellings, they should be preferred as the most common searchable term, e.g. songstress Manalemosh Dibo. Articles about musicians with stage names are listed at their more familiar name, e.g. Teddy Afro and Gigi (singer), with the legal name given in the article lead sentence.

This also applies to names of albums, songs, etc. that are sometimes transliterated directly as proper names. The name of an album is italicised, and if desired, the English interpretation could be given in parentheses and quotation marks ("like this").
