Untitled[edit]

Judy Bloom is actually Judy Blume, so I removed her from the list. It could be argued that it's the same name (especially as the article notes she's of Jewish descent), but then it could be argued that Blum is the same name too... Input? --Galaxiaad 17:20, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Perhaps Judy Blume should be mentioned somewhere on this page in case someone who has only heard the name ends up here. Likewise Steven J. Blum. What is Wikipedia's official policy on this? --- Trevie 17:43, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
In the Smith article, it's handled by a "See also" for each alternative, such as Smyth. --Orange Mike 14:43, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Article Rename Request[edit]

Can someone please rename the article title to "Bloom (disambiguation)", since it is a disambiguation page? Thank you. 93.172.110.218 (talk) 15:22, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Generally, they only have "(disambiguation)" if there is an article on some specific meaning of the term (usually the most common meaning) at the title that is the term by itself. But generally, if you want a page renamed but can't do it yourself or are not sure whether it's the right thing to do, please list it on WP:RM. -- Smjg (talk) 14:32, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
This article has existed for some years without any contention. I would oppose a move unless there is a strong overriding reason for such a move.  Velella  Velella Talk   14:58, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
