Keep it in disambiguation[edit]

Okay, the three major opinions have been represented. No need to continue a slow-speed rehash of past discussions. —David Levy 19:08, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

First, I cannot explain why some people here are so hostile to the idea that an English language name for a particular place does not have to match the native name. The fact is that countries with long history are known to have many foreign equivalents for their names.

  • Hungary is Magyarország in Hungarian but we never use it.
  • Greece is called Hellas
  • Montenegro's called Crna Gora
  • Germany can be called either Deutschland or Allemagne and the list goes on.

There is nothing unusual about it and this problem would not even arise in case of Georgia if some Americans did not have unusual pride in a state named after their colonial master.

This being said, I think it's better to keep this page on disambiguation. As far as I can tell, the the number of times each page is viewed is not significantly different and both entities are significant in their own right.--141.161.13.40 (talk) 03:48, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

I disagree. The U.S. state is far more important than the country of Georgia---the U.S. state is home to twice the population of the country of Georgia, its economy is 16 times larger, it hosts one of the world's biggest airports, etc. --Coolcaesar (talk) 13:31, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
I also disagree. Move to Georgia to Georgia (country). Georgia (U.S. state) is newer and globally less relevant than a country, regardless of its size. Rkarlsba (talk) 14:25, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
Of course something American is far more important than something that's not American. Th4n3r (talk) 13:44, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

GeorgiaGeorgia (disambiguation) – See Talk:Georgia (country). Elockid (Talk) 13:43, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Comment It doesn't seem controversial. It's surprising that the page isn't already called Georgia (disambiguation) because that name is redirected to Georgia any way. Liz Let's Talk 18:00, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. That's not how our disambiguation pages usually work. If the base name is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC and thus used as the title of a different article, then the disambiguation page includes "(disambiguation)". If not, then the base name by itself is used as the title of the disambiguation page. The proposed move would only make sense if Georgia were to become the title of either the U.S. state or the Caucasus country. Dohn joe (talk) 18:14, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
I see no need for two discussions. If there is a consensus to move the other article to Georgia this article would be moved automatically.--70.49.82.207 (talk) 19:03, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
Normally I'd agree. But the first comment seemed to think that this move would makes sense regardless of the other RM, so I thought it was worthwhile to address it here. Dohn joe (talk) 20:42, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Georgia (country) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 03:13, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

@Elockid, Liz, and Dohn joe: Please heed this notice. -- tariqabjotu 03:17, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Georgia (2010, film)[edit]

This film has quite another name, „5 Days of War”. I think, it must not to be in this disambig.--Unikalinho (talk) 12:09, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

"Alphabetical order by author name"[edit]

Two points: 1) those aren't the names of the songwriters (not "authors") and 2) that wouldn't be the correct alphabetization anyways. "Cee Lo Green" would be alphabetized under "Green, Cee Lo". "Elton John" would be alphabetized under "John, Elton". And so on. "Field Mob" would, however, be alphabetized under "Field Mob". --Khajidha (talk) 14:40, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
