Chilöe WigeonChiloe Wigeon – I believe discritic is misused here. Most other Wikipedia articles list spelling as Chiloé, but because of my general opposition to the use of diacritics in the english wikipedia, I am proposing the name change as listed, as spelled by the IOC, who we use as our standard..Pvmoutside (talk) 19:03, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Support 300 post-1980 Google Book examples without a diacritic, compared to 3 with (either diacritic). Here is IOC. Kauffner (talk) 04:56, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Question. First, can the proposer please reword to show at a glance and unambiguously that "Chiloe" is what is proposed, and not "Chiloé"? "Chiloe" appears in the code for this section, but it is not visible on the page above. [Thanks for fixing that. Still waiting for more opinions to surface.–N] "Chiloe" does seem to be the most common form in print in English. Just so it's on record here, Spanish has "Chiloé" as the standard form (see Chiloé Island, etc.); and the "ö" in English would be motivated by a wish to show that the word has three syllables, not just two (compare old spellings like "coördinate").
