God of Scrabble?[edit]

"and their low quality and the variant spellings, which might reflect a low standard of literacy" Wrong. This is a fairly common misconception. It wasn't until the 19h Century & the introduction of universal education, which necessitated standard spellings & led to the first dictionary, that "spelling errors" became true; before that, words were commonly spelled as they sounded, even by very learned & literate people. This is, btw, 1 reason the myth of more than one Shakespeare, based on variations of the spelling of his signature, is untenable; spelling was, until the dictionary, extremely idiosyncratic...

Hyphenated name?[edit]

There is no support for hyphenating this name! It is normally rendered Belatucadrus or Belatucadros by scholars and, like all ancient Celtic compound names, it is treated as a single word. How do we do a name change on this article? Cagwinn (talk) 22:20, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Fixed this, and corrected the form on the Celtic deities template. Fixed a few in articles as well. We'll see whether anyone objects. Cynwolfe (talk) 03:00, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
