Talk:Arrondissements of Paris
|WikiProject France / Paris||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
Municipal arrondissement in France claims that Paris's ones do in fact have names not just numbers (but they are no longer, or have never been) used. Is this true and if so can someone find out what they are? Morwen - Talk 19:49, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

- Hey @John K: A late reply, but I've been pretty much inactive since a few years.
- There was a time when arrondissement names were very important; much like the metro lines were before, were you to say the number (and not the name/destination), most people wouldn't understand you. The above names, attributed at the last annexation (of suburbs) and arrondissment reorganisation, was a continuation of a 'tradition'... but it didn't make much sense because the arrondissements we see today are at least three times larger than they were before... they tried to compensate by giving names to 'quartiers', but these, too, are largely unused (and have no administrative value).
- Adding all that might make the article more interesting... have to find some English sources about it, though. TP ✎ ✓ 12:35, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

from postal code?
Is there some way to tell what arrondissement a location is in by its postal code, or some other aspect of its address if the arrondissement isn't explicitly listed (other than memorizing all the streets and which numbers are in which arrondissement, of course)?
- Yes, the last two digits of the 5-digit postal code indicate the arrondissement. Vilĉjo 19:15, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
750xx, xx is arrondissement. Reseaunaut 21:49, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Merge Arrondissement into Arrondissements
There are two WP articles: Arrondissement of Paris and Arrondissements of Paris. These surely concern the same subject. In fact, both are essentially just lists of 20 links to 20 articles about the individual arrondissements. Can we not redirect Arrondissement to Arrondissements?

I see that some articles for Parisian arrondissements have adopted roman numerals while others are in Arabic numbering/English? I would propose to moved these onto a consistent footing. As the related categories are in the roman form, I would suggest moving the articles to their Roman form namespaces. In all cases, there are already redirects, so they would need to be moved over redirects.
- There's a discussion on WT:MOS-FR about this issue - views welcomed. Mcewan (talk) 15:41, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
