Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus, no prejudice against a future request with further evidence. --BDD (talk) 18:01, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Célena CherryCelena Cherry – Over 1 million results without the accent, just 6,000 with it. Relisted bd2412 T 14:51, 4 October 2013 (UTC) Unreal7 (talk) 13:57, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Anyway, can you please present a proper search distinguishing 7-bit ASCII equivalent and full unicode equivalent sources? One way to do that is to use Beyoncé or Emile Sandé as benchmarks in the search. Otherwise your 1 million results are just saying "she gets named in a lot of not very good websites" - that's true for Beyoncé and Emile Sandé too. There are millions of not very good websites out there pirating mp3s ringtones and heaven knows what with 52 letter ABCabc character sets. Yes. In ictu oculi (talk) 01:49, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • What IIO said. We should retain the accent if it's actually part of her name; if it's a stylization related to her musical career, it's not so important. Either way, the raw WP:GHITS only prove that most English speakers don't bother to reproduce diacritics. We shouldn't be in a rush to imitate such errors. --BDD (talk) 21:57, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

The accent indicates the bio subject presumably wants her name pronounced SAY-lena, rather than Se-LAY-na. Perhaps someone can confirm this and add an IPA pronuciation box to the lead to show how the name is pronounced? In ictu oculi (talk) 01:49, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

It could be a vanity stylization. It would be better to have some evidence that the name is pronounced as you suspect. --BDD (talk) 21:55, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
