CromwellCromwell (disambiguation) — It seems to me that for use without a first name, Oliver Cromwell is the main meaning. For example, most of the things listed (the larger towns, film, play, college and tank), are all named after Oliver Cromwell. (The ship and current are not.) So Cromwell should point to Oliver Cromwell, with a hat note to the dab page.ospalh (talk) 13:37, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment it's a surname, is this commonly done in other instances? 65.94.71.179 (talk) 22:45, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support In Britain at least unqualified references to Cromwell are generally understood to refer to Oliver. PatGallacher (talk) 11:34, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Oliver Cromwell is by far the most famous bearer of the surname Cromwell. Perhaps the current article 'Oliver Cromwell' should be moved towards 'Cromwell' (after moving the current Cromwell-article towards 'Cromwell (disambiguation)')? Flamarande (talk) 13:02, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
    I don't think we should move Oliver Cromwell->Cromwell; but Cromwell should be a redirect to Oliver Cromwell, I think that is the point of this RM. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 17:44, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Even not in Britain, Cromwell is Oliver. Unless maybe you live in Cromwell,_Connecticut. As an aside, the fact that a town is named after him does not mean the town can't become far more famous. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 17:44, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
