Author spelling[edit]

Should this article be at Henri Milne Edwards? In all the citations I have seen of animals he has named, there is no hyphen between "Milne" and "Edwards". Note that there is also no hyphen in the French Wikipedia's article. --Stemonitis 10:43, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I saw a hyphen in the citation I was looking at, and found some on google. I don't know for sure though, so I added a redirect at that location. If anyone knows otherwise, they could move the page. --Mathwizard1232 19:46, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

This statement derived from the Petymol biographies I believe is wrong: " In taxon authorship, the hyphenated name "Milne-Edwards" is most often used for both father and son ". A search in WoRMS shows 1738 records where the author is given as "Milne Edwards" and 208 articles where the author is Milne Edwards (plus some with "Milne Edwards" as the authority name for a species name in a title). Father Henri signed himself Milne Edwards, son Alphonse used Milne-Edwards. The page should thus be renamed as suggested by Stemonitis (I don't know how) Pherusan (talk) 04:11, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Does the Milne element indicate a connection with a French or Belgian resident family of Milnes? If so, which one? (talk) 00:32, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
