Old discussion pertaining to band (?)[edit]

The below were the page's contents when I opened it. To avoid confusion, I have moved this into a separate section. 94.220.250.76 (talk) 08:59, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

from VfD:

Notability enough to be listed in an encyclopedia has not been established by the article and seems unlikely to be able to be established based upon the information there. Sounds like a not-particularly-noteworthy garage band. DreamGuy 21:04, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)

  • Delete, not notable. Megan1967 01:41, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Ok, sorry for wasting your time with this. I can see why it's not notable for Wikipedia, though they are MY favorite band at the moment. I'll come back when they've released their debut album and sold millions, ok? - original poster
    • Good thinking, original poster. Kappa 11:01, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • I'd suggest instead that this should redirect to Aloysius Gonzaga. Smerdis of Tlön 20:53, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Not a bad idea, but what about when the band releases their debut album and sells millions? I suppose we'd need to disambiguate it. Oh well, worry about that later, redirect for now. --Deathphoenix 02:24, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • As all first names have their own page, so should this. I could write the info on the origin of the name, if needed. Muarae 13:38, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

The current pronunciations seems wrong in my ears. I suspect that it is exclusively focused on the US version or even some semi-absurd local variation. 94.220.250.76 (talk) 09:02, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

It looks/sounds right to me. Do you have an alternative pronunciation that you could cite or link to? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.19.70.160 (talk) 07:07, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Same as "Alois"[edit]

So is Aloysius actually the same name as Alois in some languages ?Eregli bob (talk) 03:49, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
