Fredi BobičFredi Bobic — Revert an unreferenced, undiscussed move. This article is about "a German football striker". He is best known in English as Fredi Bobic, and furthermore there isn't even a č in the German language either.
1. The article was improperly moved by User:Maestral with no references, no discussion (until now, the talk page included only a couple of templates), and with the edit summary "Korrekt slovenian spelling" (but neither correct English spelling or nor correct English capitalization in that summary).
2. The article about this German footballer is under de:Fredi Bobic on the German Wikipedia.
3. The article doesn't include anything identified as "references" or "sources". It does, however, include one external link to "Official Website". On that "official website" (and it indeed does appear to be a personal site of the actual subject of this article), his name is spelled "Fredi Bobic".
4. No references, reliable sources or otherwise, have ever been cited that would even justify inclusion of "Fredi Bobič" as a variant spelling in the introduction of the article, but even if there turns out to be reason for that, both the article's name and the general spelling within it should be at "Fredi Bobic".

Bobič or Bobic?[edit]

Sorry but, as far as I know, he was born as Bobič, in Slovenia, and later the č was "converted" in a simple latin c. But he was born as Bobič and I think in his birth certificate he is Bobič. If my surname is Bobič and I was born in Maribor, if I take also German citizenship my surname remains Bobič. Am I wrong? --necronudist 14:02, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

As he was born in Slovenia to a Slovene father and a Croat mother [1], the surname written in his birth certificate is Slovene, so indeed it is Bobič, not Bobic. --Eleassar my talk 12:01, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
