Dolar PopatDolar Popat, Baron Popat

—. The WP:PEER guideline states that the peerage title should be shown unless the peer is normally or exclusively known without it. The exception does not apply here. He is not well known, as e.g. Margaret Thatcher. Kittybrewster 23:33, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
He still appears to be better known as "Dolar Popat" than the virtually unused "Baron Popat", and certainly than the strange-sounding double title "Dolar Popat, Baron Popat" that is being proposed here. This kind of proposal (which would never seriously be considered if it weren't for the PEER guideline) is a good example of why WP:PEER is such poor guidance, but even according to the nominator's own terms, yes, he is "normally or exclusively known without it" (he's called Lord if anything, hardly ever "Baron" except in formal registers), so the exception clearly does apply.--Kotniski (talk) 11:47, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
I think it should be kept here as per WP:COMMONNAME Racklever (talk) 12:01, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose per WP:PRECISE pre-emptive disambiguation for no reason, non-consise title for no reason. WP:PEER isn't even a guideline, it's a WikiProject. WP:PRECISE is policy, and trumps any guideline per WP:PG. 64.229.101.119 (talk) 16:39, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
