Real Name[edit]

What's the Wikipedia policy on removing real names at the request of the person in question? I don't feel good about removing publicly known, albeit somewhat hard to find, information from an encyclopedia just because that person doesn't like that information to be publicly known. --Mudd1 (talk) 09:12, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

The two policies seem to answer every question but this one! On the one hand, "the subject's full name, if known [not if there are no objections], should be given in the lead sentence." On the other hand, "it may reasonably be inferred that the subject does not object" might apply to the two clauses — secondary sources and self-published sources — instead of just the latter. Only birthdays are mentioned as specific things that should be removed upon request.
If quality of sources is the only issue, these three articles (from the same day), tilt the argument in favor of naming CBG19. If she becomes as successful as I hope she does, her name becoming widely known is inevitable anyway. Connor Behan (talk) 05:19, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
