  • Habits (Stay High)Habits (Tove Lo song) – (Discuss) – The original hit was just "Habits". It was released in December 2013. It was charting in multiple charts including #1 in US. "Habits (Stay High)" came much later in March 2014. Stick to original as prevalent, so naturally has priority. "habiys" werldwayd (talk) 23:08, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Slide-action shotgunPump-action shotgun – (Discuss) – The term "pump-action shotgun" is MUCH more commonly-encountered than "slide-action shotgun" in both common and specialist media and discussions in English-speaking countries. It is rare to see the term "slide-action shotgun" in the US, the UK, Canada or Australia. Google Books shows 32,200 results for "pump-action shotgun" (enclosed in quotes) and only 7,290 for "slide-action shotgun". Google News Archive shows 168 results for "pump-action shotgun" and no results for the other term. Google's web search lists only 26,200 results for "slide-action shotgun", compared to 403K results for "pump-action shotgun". Wikipedia should use the most widely accepted term.

  • Kat OCrooked Island, Hong Kong – (Discuss) – Crooked Island is the English name, and it is used more often in English sources when referring to the island as opposed to other features on the island. Bejnar (talk) 15:05, 2 September 2014 (UTC) --Bejnar (talk) 15:05, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Miriam CleggMiriam González Durántez – (Discuss) – When Miriam González Durántez married Nick Clegg, she did not change her name. She is occasionally and incorrectly referred to as "Miriam Clegg" by members of the media hostile to Mr Clegg and his party. Cjw500 (talk) 14:44, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Celtic League (political organisation)Celtic League – (Discuss) – The UN-recognized international organization founded in 1961 makes sense as the primary topic. The rugby competition hasn't been known by this name in years, and changes name frequently (it's had at least 4 names, presently Guinness Pro12) and is usually referred to as the Pro12. References to the rugby thing as "Celtic League" are rarely found outside obsolete sports-specialized sources. The only other entry on the disambiguation page is an ice hockey event known as the Celtic League Cup, not the Celtic League. Also, the disambiguation "(political organisation)" isn't accurate, as the Celtic League is principally a language and culture preservation organisation, and engages in few direct political activities at all. If it were not moved to Celtic League, it should be renamed Celtic League (cultural organisation) or perhaps simply Celtic Leangue (organisation).  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  11:14, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • BIBi – (Discuss) – Most of the entries concern topics described as "Bi" Gregkaye (talk) 06:44, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • AtilaAtila (band) – (Discuss) – I surmise that most of the viewers who view this article are actually intending Attila (the Hun). Then convert "Atila" into a redirect to Attila. Hoops gza (talk) 03:08, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • 2014 Russian military intervention in UkraineRusso-Ukrainian War – (Discuss) – Support The conflict is described by sources as a war between Russia and Ukraine, and while the Donbas War article covers separatism and Russian military support, this article can be used to discuss the overal conflict and direct war between the two states, as is beginning to be recognized internationally and bilaterally. Russian military intervention in Ukraine does not describe the conflict well because of several reasons:* The conflict is also spilling into the Russian oblast of Rostov and on sea, so not only inside Ukraine.* There are heavy conducts of warfare between the Ukrainean army and Russian regular army (both inside Ukraine and by Shelling over the border) --> you can't call a war of this scale an 'intervention'.* The annexation of territory and occuping territory with the objective of creating a 'new Russia'(Novorussia) within Ukraine is more than an 'intervention'.* The 2014 pro-Russian unrest in Ukraine escallated into a Russo-Ukrainian war. It is obvious that without Russias involvment there wouldn't be much of a war, only violent protests and occupation of state-buildings. * Conforming naming with other Russian 'military interventions' like the Russo-Georgian war. --Niele (talk) 00:12, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  • 2014 American intervention in Iraq2014 American intervention in Iraq and Syria – (Discuss) – It is now clear that the U.S. has been active militarily in both Iraq and Syria, this includes Reconnaissance[2] missions and even a raid to rescue [3]James Foley (which didn't succeed). To keep the article "2014 American intervention in Iraq" would be quite problematic as a large portion of this article seems to show content related to America militarily involved in Syria. There are many sources to support my reasoning, most of which are listed on the article and a few linked here in this template. Acetotyce (talk) 00:36, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Adolfo TapiaLa Parka – (Discuss) – Tapia has wrestled as Parka and Park for many years. As Parka, he wrestled from 1992 until 2003. He wrestled in AAA and WCW durning the Monday Night Wars, when wrestling was very famous. Since 2003, he wrestles as LA Park, but only in Mexico and sometimes in indy promotions. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 19:24, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Sabine Pass LightSabine Pass Lighthouse – (Discuss) – Common name, historical name, and current "official" name. This is an historic structure that began as the Sabine Pass Light station. For a short time (like 13 years) it was an official USCG "light". It was abandoned by the USCG, sold several times, and fire and storms reduced it to the current structure commonly known as the Sabine Pass Lighthouse. :Google books show: "Sabine Pass Lighthouse"= 4,770 hits with books from 1882, 1903, 1913, to 2012. "Sabine Pass Light"= 7,800 hits. An overwhelming majority of these hits use the word lighthouse but in the hits the wording is Sabine Pass Lighthouse or Sabine Pass Light-house. 1 book was titled "Sabine Pass Light" here. From the very first search hit here using "Light" there are 3 entries and all contain "Lighthouse" here and this is a consistent finding. :A Google search of Sabine Pass Lighthouse (41,800) here returns this Wikipedia article as "Light" and almost all other hits use "Lighthouse". A Google search of "Sabine Pass Light" (249,000 hits) returns this Wikipedia article title and far too many to list use "Lighthouse" here. The word "lighthouse" being included in "light" makes it obvious that "house" or "-house" is included in "light" searches.Rationale: The current "legal" name for the lighthouse is "Sabine Pass Lighthouse"; CAMERON PRESERVATION ALLIANCE- SABINE PASS LIGHTHOUSE INC here, website here, and it is commonly known as the Sabine Pass Lighthouse, here, here, The National Park Service uses "Lighthouse" here, Newspaper articles; here May 05, 2013, the Lake Charles American Press covered story posted by October 3, 2010,here titled "Sabine Pass Lighthouse stands tall through ages". The Texas State Historical Society refers to the structure here as the Sabine Pass Lighthouse. An historical writer uses "lighthouse" here. The Wikipedia article List of lighthouses in the United States uses "lighthouses" instead of "light" for disambiguation. The project is named Wikipedia:WikiProject Lighthouses,, there is Wikipedia:WikiProject Lighthouses/Assessment, and Wikipedia:WikiProject Lighthouses/Resources. The National Register of Historic Places listings in Cameron Parish, Louisiana uses Sabine Pass lighthouse. The United States Postal Service issued a stamp 2008-07-23, here under the title Sabine Pass Lighthouse, along with 5 other here lighthouses. An Oklahoma TV station uses "lighthouse; here, in reference to the lighthouses that survived devastating hurricanes thus earning a US stamp. These would be "the Matagorda Island (TX), Sabine Pass (LA), Biloxi (MS), Sand Island (AL) and Fort Jefferson (FL) lighthouses." These are listed on Wikipedia as Matagorda Island Light, Sabine Pass Light, Biloxi Light, Sand Island Light (Alabama), and Garden Key Light. The article, using a project naming convention title, considered "official" by the USCG, has 7 references. The first; a United States Coast Guard reference uses "light" but the reference uses "lighthouse". The second; the National Park service uses "Light" (which is actually found here) under the caption "Historic Lighthouses and Light Stations in Louisiana". The remaining four use Lighthouse in the references.Even IF the official name was "Sabine Pass Light" the lead states "People often assume that, where an official name exists for the subject of a Wikipedia article, that name is ipso facto the correct title for the article, and that if the article is under another title then it should be moved. In many cases this is contrary to Wikipedia practice and policy.". Official name rationale states "The preference for common names avoids several problems with official names: Obscurity, competing authorities, Changes to names.". It also states under valid use of official names "Official English names are candidates for what to call an article, because somebody presumably uses them. They should always be considered as possibilities, but should be used only if they are actually the name most commonly used.". This is just an essay but has 22 editors to establish consensus. The use of "lighthouse" is common on Wikipedia even if there is a trend to change lighthouse articles to light.If the majority of entities and media agree that the common, historical, and current name is Sabine Pass Lighthouse should there not be exceptions to a Wikipedia project that chooses to use a one time "official" USCG name? If a project creates a naming convention should all articles be renamed even against the common name? Wikipedia policy, Wikipedia:Article titles, suggests we use commonly recognizable names. The current title is ambiguous. The USCG light list pages 183 (search #218) to 188 (search #223 here shows many different types of lights: "light" (numbered), on a pile, daybeacons, pier lights, lighted buoy (including danger Buoy), range lights (front and rear), wharf and dock lights, range light on a tower, leading lights, Jetty Light, lake lights, and all are "lights" but a particular type just as the "Sabine Pass Lighthouse" denotes specificity thus disambiguation. Wikipedia:Article titles states "Article titles should be recognizable to readers, unambiguous, and consistent with usage in reliable English-language sources.". There is no listing for a lighthouse because the Sabine Pass Lighthouse is not an active USCG light, has not been since 1952, there has been no "light" in the tower for many, many years, and there are at least two other USCG range "lights" on the property. *:Added comment: I think it is important that articles be properly named. The article was a long time stub and I took interest and expanded the article and changed the title with the intent to download pictures that I took and further expansion. Up until that point there was no other interest in any expansion and after my contributions the title was changed back, my edits were reverted while shown as improvements, thus effectively moving the article back to a glorified start class. I have been creating articles of historic value, and expanding those created, along the Sabine River for a long time. The first edit a person would consider, if interested in any article, would be to correct an improper, outdated, or wrong name, and that is presumably a given. I would think any editor would not have an interest in editing any article with what he or she considers an improper name. I don't just create stubs to leave them as such. In fact, I don't even like to create just a stub article and if I do it is with plans to expand it. I would really love to see the old lighthouse restored and incorporated into a park or state park. With that stated, and hopefully the evidence presented, I would like to see a name change to what I see as the far more common "Sabine Pass Lighthouse", of which there are certainly references that can be used.

  • 2004 putative Venezuelan coup d'état attemptRanch Daktari affair – (Discuss) – The current title is anything but neutral, there's was no coup d'etat, even the linkage between Roberto Alonso and the Colombian paramilitaries is vague and unreliable. The national press know this incident as the "Ranch (Finca in Spanish) Daktari affair", named after the property of Mr Alonso. Oscar (talk) 21:18, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Asia Television LimitedAsia Television – (Discuss) – Per WP:NCCORP: "The legal status suffix of a company (such as Inc., plc, LLC, and those in other languages such as GmbH, AG, and S.A.) is not normally included in the article title (for example, Microsoft Corporation, Nestlé S.A., Aflac Incorporated, and Deutsche Post AG).".

  • Logan CityCity of Logan – (Discuss) – Logan City Council has adopted the name of the 'City of Logan' which encompasses the entire local government area. We therefore request the page name to be changed to reflect this from 'Logan City' to the 'City of Logan'. Logancc (talk) 23:50, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Zaza peopleZaza Kurds – (Discuss) – The article keeps getting vandalised by people that claim Zazakis aren't Kurds. Therefore I propose that the name of the article should be changed to Zaza Kurds. --Relisted. DrKiernan (talk) 19:25, 28 August 2014 (UTC) Relisted.

  • Russian Invasion of Ukraine (2014)Russo-Ukrainian War – (Discuss) – Original name of the article, the conflict is described by sources as a war between Russia and Ukraine, and while the Donbas War article covers separatism and Russian military support, this article can be a split to discuss the direct war between the two states, as is beginning to be recognized internationally and bilaterally. LeVivsky (ಠ_ಠ) 17:12, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
  • National Parliament of Solomon IslandsNational Parliament of the Solomon Islands – (Discuss) – First off, I know that the official name of this body is "National Parliament of Solomon Islands", without the "the". I think that is an uncontroversial point. We know that we generally use the common name as opposed to the official name. It's nice when they are the same. The common name here might include the "the". I've done some google searches on this, but I keep getting widely divergent results when I repeat the searches—so I'm not sure about this, but I wanted to throw it out there for discussion at least and for others to consider the results that they get. --Relisted.

  • ArtworkArtwork (disambiguation) – (Discuss) – Many of the topics listed on this page are types of artwork. Those that are not are lesser-known software titles. I propose to move this to the disambiguation title so that the word "Artwork" can redirect to its natural meaning, Work of art. bd2412 T 02:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

August 27, 2014[edit]

  • Global warming controversyClimate change debate – (Discuss) – I assume that Debate hits more the bullpoint than controversy. I first dont agree with the useless nature/social distinction made between "science" (we know its settled exempt a small Gaulian village) and public opinion or policy (which dares to deny or not to care). As Reiner Grundmann has pointed out, "climate change as a long term issue requiring more public involvement and debate, not less". Climate change is a Science, technology and society (STS) phenomenem and all aspects combined are being scholarly covered. That said, were better off if we accept that climate change happens and the most important partis belongs to the Debate over most effective response to climate change (not warming as now in the rather outdated article). This has, on first hand nothing to do with scientists opposing the mainstream, as still being connoted in Global_warming_controversy#Debate_over_most_effective_response_to_warming. The debate, and its a hot one, is about what conclusions are being drawn, globally or regionally, from climate change and whos to take burdens, profits and loss. Serten (talk) 22:51, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Arthur D. LevinsonArt Levinson – (Discuss) – Google Trends indicates that "Art Levinson" is the common name, as it has earned at least a score of 10 for search interest since November 2010, whereas "Arthur D. Levinson" hasn't (some months even have a score of 0). "Art Levinson" has a regional interest section on Google Trends, while "Arthur D. Levinson" does not, and it even says for the latter, "Not enough search volume to show results." WikiWinters (talk) 22:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Group hugGroup hug (website) – (Discuss) – The obscure website should be moved so that the term can redirect to Hug; the brief mention of the term "group hug" can be expanded on there. bd2412 T 17:12, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • MRT 2 (TV channel)MRT 2 – (Discuss) – These pages were originally located at the target move names, until around yesterday when PhilippineRevolution (talk · contribs) moved the pages without a discussion to MPT 2 and MPT 2 Sat stating "real acronym based on official logo" and "official name and acronym used in the logo". The user also moved other Macedonian Radio Television related pages from "MRT..." to "MPT..." citing the same reason, to which have been moved back.As per the guidelines at WP:UE; "Names not originally in a Latin alphabet, such as Greek, Chinese, or Russian names, must be transliterated." Since the Macedonian language primary uses Cyrillic, "Македонска радио телевизија" (МРТ) would be correct in Cyrillic, but transliterated "Makedonska radio televizija" (MRT).  [[ axg //  ]] 12:43, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • German ClasicoDer Klassiker – (Discuss) – As far as I know the rivalry between BVB and FCB is called Der Klassiker, with sources including FIFA, Bundeliga, and many pundits in football addressing it with the aforementioned name. Sources are as follows. While the term German Clasico is not seen in such respective sources, but more as a reference to (or/and) comparing to the 'El Clasico' in Spain. (Supercup Clash addressed as Supercup Klassiker [1]) (FIFA article reffering to the clash between the teams [2]) (Bundeliga Official Youtube Channel [3]) S1028 (talk) 11:13, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Nir BitonNir Bitton – (Discuss) – Quite a strange one here. Despite spelling his name with a single t last year, Celtic's official website now lists him as Nir Bitton (see here). He also has his name displayed as Bitton on the back of his shirt. Don't know why this change has occurred but given most news sources are now spelling it Bitton (1, 2, 3), I assume the page should be moved. Username of a generic kind (talk) 08:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • BardyllisBardylis – (Discuss) – As shown by the previous section, the name of this person is mostly spelled with one "L" and not two. Zoupan 08:08, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • SooyoungChoi Soo-young – (Discuss) – This name should be given in the same format as band leader Kim Tae-yeon, which has been freshly confirmed. The issues are the same here. When the subject is representing her band, her name is generally given as "Girls' Generation Sooyoung." This may be the most common form of her name, but it is unencyclopedic. This proposal would put her name in our standard format for Korean names. (See here ) The subject has a significant acting career, and in this context she is referred to in the proposed form: (See HanCinema.) She did a cameo of herself as a singer in this TV show. So the credit is "Choi Soo-young" and she is described as playing the character "Girls' Generation Soo-young." Soo-young is a common name in Korea, not a Madonna-style mononym identified with a single individual. Here are two examples of JoongAng using the proposed form: [5], [6]. Pinging the participants in the previous discussion: TerryAlex, DragonFury, Jaewon, Sawol. Clodhopper Deluxe (talk) 04:08, 27 August 2014 (UTC)


  • Beit RasCapitolias – (Discuss) – The article is about the ancient city of Capitolias, not about the unimportant present-day village of Beit Ras. Esoglou (talk) 16:12, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Internet Party and MANA MovementInternet Party and Mana Movement – (Discuss) – "Mana" is a Māori word. It is not an acronym. Placing "Mana" all in capital letters is the organisation's stylistic preference that varies from standard English capitalisation. WP:TRADEMARK applies to "words and short phrases used by organizations and individuals to identify themselves and their products and services", and directs us to "Follow standard English text formatting and capitalization rules, even if the trademark owner considers nonstandard formatting "official". As the Internet Party and Mana Movement is an organisation, WP:TRADEMARK applies, and standard English capitalisation should be used. The organisation's preference for all-caps would be indicated int he lead paragraph of the article. Ground Zero | t 15:39, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Marian PaharsMarians Pahars – (Discuss) – The correct name of the individual is Marians, not Marian. Marians is the subject's correct, legal given name and still used by him. Although his name may have been Anglicized by the foreign press, his proper name is Marians (as all Latvian masculine given names end in 's') and he currently lives and works in Latvia. Simply because the press has effectively given him a new name or truncated his actual name, shouldn't be acceptable that Wikipedia follows suit and refers to him by that name. His Latvian Wiki page also refers to him as Marians. Also, I do not believe this would be a very controversial move, as "Marian Pahars" would still redirect to "Marians Pahars." ExRat (talk) 04:23, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Nelson Frazier, Jr.Nelson Frazier – (Discuss) – There is Nelson-Frasier Furniture (currently J.A. Byrd Mercantile Store), but I believe that "Nelson Frazier" is precise enough for this wrestler. The "Jr." is not necessary at this point. I'm not proposing ring names, as those one of the names have has been. These ring names are too competitive, so the birth name (with or without "Jr.") should be given the Sean Combs-treatment. George Ho (talk) 00:24, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • HomeschoolingHome Education – (Discuss) – Home education redirects to this homeschooling article, but it should be the other way around as home education is the term with the wider meaning. Home schooling is but one form of home education. Apart from home schooling there are other forms of home education such as ustructured and autonomous. The term homeschooling is used predominantly in the US and Canada - and used errorneously to mean home education by those who don't know the difference - while the term home education is used in most of the rest of the world. Besides, we already have a "Homeschooling in the US" article that covers the article title policy. Meat and 2 veg (talk) 20:34, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Brain DamageBrain damage (disambiguation) – (Discuss) – The primary topic of this page is Brain damage. Therefore, capitalization of the second word of the page name (damage) is incorrect. There are pages where the word is capitalized as part of the title of something, but those pages are not about the primary topic. We need a title with (disambiguation) in it, to distinguish this disambiguation page from the primary page. -- Tryptofish (talk) 15:28, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • RossiyaneRussian citizens – (Discuss) – Per WP:COMMONNAME and WP:USEENGLISH, this should be moved to Russian citizens, Citizens of Russia, People of Russia, or Russian people. The conception of Russianness in Russian (rossiyane vs. russkiye) is an important one, and perhaps there should be an article specifically about it. But the word rossiyane is not English. It is almost always italicized, used for explanation or to gloss translations, and almost never actually used in English, and is not naturalized in English grammar (i.e. has no English singular/plural form). It is not in English dictionaries, and would not be understood by the vast majority of readers. See relative frequency in Google Ngram. Relisted.

  • Like a Virgin (book)Like a Virgin: How Science Is Redesigning the Rules of Sex – (Discuss) – WP:SUBTITLES was cited as reason for changing to the current title. However, the guideline doesn't say much about whether to use "(book)" or the subtitle. Omission of either is obviously out of option because... you have Madonna's album and song of the same name. Moreover, the current title misleads others into assuming that Madonna wrote the book, Like a Virgin: <something something>. Yes, searching the proposed title in Google leads to bigger results, but the long title is not well-remembered by journalists who used it. Journalists must have copied-and-pasted the title for their articles on their computers. You can try "like a virgin book", but the more effective search term is "like a virgin aarathi Prasad".

  • August 2013 Rabaa MassacreRabaa and Nahda massacre – (Discuss) – I have informed Jenks24 (who closed the previous RM) about my intention to start this request and I believe I have a green light for it.[7] Since the word massacre will obviously never be replaced in the title, I believe it is fair enough to at least make it factual and accurate per the first and second move discussions.

  • Western Pomerania → ? – (Discuss) – This article is about only one, arguably not the most important, meaning of the term. It may be better to change the title and place the disambig here, as Western Pomerania is not faithful translation of German Vorpommern. The WP:NC(GN) rules applies here, just as in Pomerelia (formerly Eastern Pomerania). Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 14:04, 25 August 2014 (UTC) --Relisted.

  • Human swimmingSwimming – (Discuss) – I can't shake the feeling that when people look up "swimming" they are thinking about the human activity. I grant that many links intend the sport of swimming, but the sport is a subtopic of the human activity of swimming. By comparison, Running is a primary topic article on the activity (generally), and there is a whole family of articles on competitive running events like Middle-distance running. Relisted.

  • Erhai LakeErhai – (Discuss) – WP:NCPLACE: "Rivers, lakes and mountains often include the word River, Lake or Mount in the name; national conventions and idiom should be followed in this matter... For many countries the additional word is used when needed for disambiguation purposes, but is otherwise omitted: compare Jade (river) or Achelous River (which require disambiguation) with Rhine (which does not)." The national convention in China is to call it "Erhai", that's it. The "hai" part means "Sea", and if you scroll above and read the previous move proposal you'd see that some people believe that "Erhai Lake" is a tautology. WP:ZH-NC#Place Names specifies "Avoid tautologies." The problem is avoided by removing the word "Lake". Relisted.

  • Astorga, SpainAstorga – (Discuss) – The primary meaning of Astorga is the Spanish city. No other item on the disambiguation page is known as just "Astorga" besides the Brazilian place, which is not nearly as notable. User:Vivaelcelta changed "Astorga" from a long-standing redirect to the Spanish city recently and has been disambiguating links to it. I am proposing this move as a better solution. If it doesn't have support, then the disambiguation page should be moved to the proposed title (now again a redirect). Srnec (talk) 12:20, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Birtha (Commagene)Birtha (Osrhoene) – (Discuss) – The old name was based on the mistaken information in an 1845 source unanimously contradicted by more modern sources. Both sides are represented in the present provisional text, which will have to be rewritten in harmony with the proposed new title. A simpler remedy would perhaps be to merge this article into that on Birecik. Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 11:58, 25 August 2014 (UTC) Esoglou (talk) 16:44, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Transport in CanadaTransportation in Canada – (Discuss) – Opening a new discussion since the other ones are long in the coffin. I think that there is compelling evidence that the common English-language usage in Canada is in fact "transportation in ___" rather than "transport in ___." Previous commenters appear to have confused this with the fact that official government usage appears to be the latter, but that is independent of its usage in common parlance and literature. Even government bodies themselves, such as Stats Canada [8][9] and Citizenship and Immigration Canada[10] refer to "transportation." A Google search shows half the results for "transport in" than for "transportation in" on .ca domains. If you look at the former, it is populated by articles talking about technical things, such as "electron transport" in chemistry, or "calcium transport" in anatomy, not vehicular transportation. For this reason, I propose it be moved to "Transportation in Canada." Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 11:44, 25 August 2014 (UTC) - SweetNightmares 03:22, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • SfogliatelleSfogliatella – (Discuss) – There is no reason why we should use the plural form, which also in the literature and in the article is recognised as such. If this were an americanism, then it should be used and declined using the singular verb (e.g. "Sfogliatelle is a cake"), but this is not the case, so it is implicit that the singular form sfogliatella is known also in english.

  • McLean School of MarylandMcLean School – (Discuss) – The School has rebranded and would like to be referred to as McLean School from now on. They will no longer go by McLean School of Maryland. This rebrand goes into place on Friday and wanted this page and the related google searches to reflect these changes. Relisted.

  • Nassau, BahamasNassau – (Discuss) – Obvious primary topic. There is nothing of note on the disambiguation page that is anything but a partial title match except for the historic German city/duchy/area (population: 5,209; pageviews: 529 a month; historical impact: minimal - stats for the duchy are not much different) or the capital of the Bahamas (population: 248,948; pageviews: 28,476 a month; historical impact: highly significant). I daresay that if a capital city in a country full of white people had a quarter of a million people and was far more commonly referred to in academic sources (as compared to just about anything else), it would get primary topic over a smaller if very historic area in an island country. But the Bahamian city currently doesn't, and I'm forced to wonder why. Let's fix this problem of WP:SYSTEMICBIAS, Wikipedia. Over 2,000 people a month are delayed from finding out information by getting to this disambiguation page instead of the page that both common sense and pageview statistics tell us that they want.

  • Neo-impressionismNeo-Impressionism – (Discuss) – Both encyclopedic and specialist publications write it the same: Encyclopedia Britanica, as well as The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York write Neo-Impressionism with capital letters (rather than Neo-impressionism). A search of the relevant literature produces the same result, see Google Books by Floyd Ratliff (1992) Paul Signac and Color in Neo-Impressionism, Russell T. Clement, ‎Annick Houzé (1999) Neo-Impressionist Painters: A Sourcebook on Georges Seurat, Camille Pissarro, Martha Ward (1996) Pissarro, Neo-Impressionism, and the Spaces of the Avant-Garde, John Gary Hutton (1994) Neo-Impressionism and the Search for Solid Ground: Art, Science, and Anarchism in Fin-de-siècle France, Catherine Bock-Weiss (1977) Henri Matisse and Neo-Impressionism, 1898-1908.

  • Tomi JurićTomi Juric – (Discuss) – Sorry to bring another one to RM but my move of a week or so ago has just been reverted and I thought it better to start a RM rather than move warring. My argument remains the same as at Talk:Matthew Spiranovic and a few others – he's born in Australia and notable for his exploits as an Australian where his name is officially "Juric" (as far as I am aware you cannot have the "ć" character on birth certificates, passports, driver's licenses, etc. in Australia). And obviously this is how he most commonly referred to by reliable sources, though I know plenty of people don't consider that grounds enough for moving by itself.

  • List of people who were beheadedList of people who were decapitated – (Discuss) – This list includes both people who were executed or murdered by decapitation, and also people who suffered accidental or posthumous decapitation. The word beheading refers most properly and specifically to executions or other intentional homicides; see my comments at Talk:List of people who were beheaded, as well as the lead section of the Decapitation article. IMO, either the existing instances of accidental or posthumous decapitation should be removed from this list, or else it would be best to rename the list to reflect the fact that editors want it to include more than just "beheadings".

  • Love Eterne (film)Love Eterne – (Discuss) – The Hong Kong film is known in English as The Love Eterne (as can be seen from the poster on that page) with the word "The", so the two films have different English titles. The two pages already reference each other in hatnotes, so disamiguation is unnecessary (not to mention inaccurate and confusing). Relisted.

  • Gratis versus libreFree (word) – (Discuss) – Despite the fancy name, what this article really is about is the word itself. Wikipedia explicitly allows articles about words when there is more to say about it than its definition, and that is certainly true of free despite (or maybe because of) the ambiguity. Relisted.

  • Al-HasakahHasaka – (Discuss) – Common English name:*Hasaka 110*al-Hasakah 23Also removing the article "al-" from transliterated Arabic proper names is a common practice, e.g. al-Iraq -> Iraq, al-Sudan -> Sudan, etc. Relisted.

  • Ultra high definition televisionUltra-high-definition television – (Discuss) – Now that we have let the article rest for a year and a half at a hyphenless title that nobody requested but that the closer preferred, it's time to give it another try to convert it to a more parsable normal English punctuation. If you review the previous 3 RMs you'll find that this kind of hyphenation is very common in sources, as are the two confusing partial hyphenations. Why not give the reader a hint, and do it right?

  • Moral rights (copyright law)Moral rights – (Discuss) – WP:TWODABS page with a clear primary topic. There is only one article that is actually a title match to "Moral rights" and it is this one, which also happens to be the overwhelming usage in Google results for the term (about ten to one, by my quick review of the top few pages of results). "Natural" rights are important, but are generally called "Natural" rights rather than moral rights. Any confusion can be dispelled with a hatnote. bd2412 T 03:44, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Nike+iPodNike+ – (Discuss) – It has changed name since the release of the Android app and on the website it is marketed as Nike+ or Nike plus.
