Nowadays, this station is just called Great Victoria Street, leaving out the Belfast. Anybody have any objections if the Belfast is removed from the title? Jimmy1109 (talk) 00:12, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree with this - but unfortunately it looks like the article was moved back to Belfast Great Victoria Street in 2010... now needs administrator privileges to move it to a better name. There are no other "Great Victoria Street" stations on Wikipedia, so why is there a need for Belfast to be in the name at all? Will request an administrator move.

Unsure about removing "Belfast" Can we have some actual sources as to the name of the station? And is this another case of the stations in a big city being locally best known (and sometimes signposted at street level) by names that don't include the city name, but on the wider network it's standard to include the name? (Does "Belfast stations" or an equivalent exist in the ticketing system?) If it's an issue between the "home" and "away" name then for transport the "away" name should take precedence.

Botanic railway station, City Hospital railway station and Titanic Quarter railway station don't have the "Belfast" prefix - my opinion is that where the locations are specific, i.e. "Such and Such Street station" then that name would suffice (unless a suffix is required for clarity, as per Peterkingiron's suggestion), but where the name is "Central station" then it needs a descriptor to show that it's the central station "of Belfast".

Comment. The NI Railways website calls it "Belfast, Great Victoria Street" in its timetables, along with "Belfast, Central", but simply "Great Victoria Street" on its route map, as opposed to "Belfast Central". -- Necrothesp (talk) 12:14, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Comment This article seems to have been on a tour of names, with the talkpage not always moved and some cases of copy & paste edits. I'm going to try and remerge it all. Timrollpickering (talk) 11:29, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
