Recent undiscussed rename[edit]

The article was recently renamed, without, so far as I can tell, any prior discussion.

A someone else noted, MetroLinx owns the line, not the TTC. So, won't they set the line's official name, MetroLinx will.

I plan to wait a reasonable amount of time, and then change the article back, if no one can explain why an extraordinary, undiscussed name change was in order.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Geo Swan (talkcontribs)

Without a doubt it will be a TTC line. All the planning shows that, and the number was assigned by the TTC when they rolled out their new signage for subway lines. The move was premature, but not necessarily incorrect. Secondarywaltz (talk) 15:22, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
I wanted to move it, but I thought I'd let that sleeping dog lie. I have no objection to the change as per Secondarywaltz. --Natural RX 16:49, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
It will be integrated into the TTC. Metrolinx just supervises the planning and construction phases, therefore Line 5 Eglinton is appropriate. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 03:24, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Common name vs. official name[edit]

This is a really bizarre name for the line. Nobody calls it Line 5 Eglinton. It's commonly called Eglinton Crosstown which according to WP:COMMON is the name we should use. This is a technical name that is more confusing for the average reader. Mattximus (talk) 21:07, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

All the TTC lines are named based on their official name, for consistency and to match the TTC's own signage. It's also debatable that "Eglinton Crosstown" is the common name, given the line hasn't opened yet. You could argue "the Crosstown" is equally valid, and same with most of the other lines: is it Yonge, Yonge–University, Yonge–University–Spadina, etc etc.? Hence the use of the official names. The use of the official names also nicely achieves WP:NATURALDIS, whereas many of the candidates for common names would require parenthetical disambiguation. —Joeyconnick (talk) 00:19, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
