Name[edit]

Suggest renaming of article to Branisłaŭ Taraškievič. This variant of the name uses Belarusian Latin alphabet alphabet and does not require to be romanised from Cyrillic. Beside this, this is the way how this person signed his works written in the Belarusian latin alphabet: File:Branisłaŭ Taraškievič - Biełaruskaja gramatyka dla škoł, 1931.jpg (with the only difference that w is not used now in Belarusian anymore and is replaced by v). —zedlik (talk) 12:05, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Cyrillic)#Belarusian explicitly states that "Lacinka [is] not to be used". And there's a good reason for that, as stated in the article Łacinka: "It is not, as such, the Romanisation system, as it imposes knowing certain accompanying orthographic conventions. - TaalVerbeteraar (talk) 17:34, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
This is not the way of transliteration, this is the name which, besides others, is used in the English-language literature. Please, see the references to the printed books in the article. For the variant "Branislaw Tarashkyevich" no sources in the book search are available. —zedlik (talk) 03:47, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
