Traditional Armenian orthographyClassical Armenian orthography – More common and more accurate, see also Classical Armenian. Plus, in Armenian, it's called "դասական" dasakan, which is "classical", not "traditional". --Relisted.  — Amakuru (talk) 23:41, 2 January 2014 (UTC) Երևանցի talk 21:24, 22 December 2013 (UTC) Google Books results

Uhm. What does Google UK has to do with academia? Google Books is the prime resource for academic works widely used in such cases. --Երևանցի talk 22:40, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Comment - OK. In my opinion,your references is not correct. Take a look at! Google Books:

Uhm, because you removed "-LLc -Wiki" from the search bar. Withour those two Google Books also searches in Wikipedia content. Take a look at the matches, the top one is a collection of Wiki articles: Traditional Armenian Orthography, Romanization of Armenian, Spelling reform of the Armenian language 1922-1924 And almost half of the rest is by the same author, Richard Hovannisian. He's a respected author, however, his usage of "Traditional Armenian orthography" doesn't make it more common. It's 58 vs 17 in my search, which is almost 3.5 times greater. --Երևանցի talk 23:07, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Support: Per nomination. 23 editor (talk) 23:03, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Support - Case has been made, opposition seems based on some rather peculiar "evidence". Andrewa (talk) 00:40, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The suggested title alludes to Classical antiquity, and so is misleading. The material is more recent, and "traditional" is the more appropriate word. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 10:29, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
No, it does not. The language is called Classical Armenian, not Traditional Armenian, and this orthography is of that language. --Երևանցի talk 19:32, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
"Classical" seems better than "Traditional", although none of them is reflecting the Armenian naming "Մեսրոպեան ուղղագրութիւն".--Zyzzzzzy (talk) 13:55, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
