This disambiguation is insane!--Blackfield 22:14, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Given the fact that Celine Dion is more notoriable than Louis Ferdinand, this disambig should be a redirect to Celine Dion article, nonetheless I will make this compromise. Google yields results for Dion over Ferdinand, and Ferdinand already has the redirect from "Céline" (with the e accented). — CRAZY`(IN)`SANE 22:43, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Weather or not Google yields more results for Dion than Céline is not relevant. The thing is that Céline is Céline Dions first name. I bet you that virtualy nobody refers to Céline Dion as just Céline in a conversation, unless he or she knows her personally (which they most likely don’t). I propose adding something like to the top of the Louis-Ferdinand Céline page.
And regarding Dion being "more notoriable": When she dies she will most likely be forgotten by the time her corpse done rotting, while Céline probably won't be forgotten in a long time considering the tremendous impact he has had on literature world wide, French literature in particular. Besides, basing who or what is more "notoriable" on the results that Google yields doesn't work. It simply doesn't work that way.
Ps.
"Notoriable" is not a word. If you don't believe me check what Google yields.--Blackfield 12:07, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
Many people refer to Celine Dion by her first name, in the Western world. I see you are from Sweden, not from around here. If someome mentioned the name Celine in this area, they would only recognize Celine Dion. Also, as for your "proposal"..."Céline" already redirects to Louis Ferdinand-whatever, its "Celine" that has this disambiguation page. Regardless of what your opinions are, the fact is that most people in the West think of Dion when the first name Celine is mentioned, not the other person. — CRAZY`(IN)`SANE 15:51, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Fine, if it makes you happy to have this disambiguation then let's keep it, as a monument of ignorance and bad taste.--Blackfield 07:24, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

This is probably the worst disambiguation ever.--Blackfield 14:48, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Céline[edit]

Of the 5 entries in the "Celine" (no accent) dab page, 3 are already listed on the "Céline" dab page; it seems unhelpful to maintain two such overlapping dab pages. Actually I've just found a TV show and two villages which need to be added to "Celine", but I still think they should be combined. PamD 17:26, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Correction: what I was looking at was a "Celine" name page from which the non-name items had already been moved out to Celine (disambiguation) (but if there was a link to that page I didn't notice it!). At Céline there was a messy page with a lot of name entries and a handful of non-name dab entries. I've now rationalised the non-name items into the one dab page Celine (disambiguation), and added hatnotes to that from both the name pages. I still propose that the two name pages should be merged, as there is no apparent difference between the names: the most well-known holder, Celine Dion, previously had an accent in her name.

  • Merge the two SIAs per MOS minor accent difference. Thanks, Céline was waiting for me to fix, I may have even added a hatnote and noticed the omission on Celine! Widefox; talk 18:27, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Merge. Of course the two articles, which reveal considerable ignorance of French orthography and history, should be merged. In French the spelling of the name is Céline and it was frequently given as a first name in honour of two Gallo-Roman saints closely associated with the beginnings of the French nation: Saint Céline of Laon, mother of St Rémy, and Saint Céline of Meaux, a companion of Saint Geneviève. Feast day for both is 21 October. In addition it is notable for one of the sisters of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Céline Martin, who also became a nun.--Clifford Mill (talk) 16:32, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
