List of names[edit]

This has been returned to the article with no attempt to justify its encyclopaedic relevance. It is an incomplete and uninformative list. I would suggest that a third opinion be sought, but maybe Angr, or anyone else who thinks there is some merit in this inclusion, will actually try to defend its inclusion.

If there is no second opinion, I can't refer it to third opinion. If I am asked to bring it to talk under BRD, someone else needs to discuss. Alternatively, if no-one is willing to put the encyclopaedic case for the inclusion of this section, then I will delete the section as uncontested. Kevin McE (talk) 09:04, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
After looking at everything, I've gotten this idea: we transwiki the surname list to Wiktionary and that is it. What do you say? m'encarta (t) 23:07, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
If such lists are something that Wiktionary admits, I have no objection. Kevin McE (talk) 17:16, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Where is the lovely list of Irish Surnames gone? I looked at the page history and the list was still there on the 21st December 2014. It was one of the most useful lists of Irish Surnames anywhere on the internet. Wikipedia has loads of pages that list different types of surnames, and the list should be put back. If the list doesn't fit properly on a Wikipedia called "Irish name", then the list should be put on a brand new page called "List of Irish Surnames". Common you guys, don't delete what is a very useful list of Irish Surnames for anyone doing surname research or family history. Please put the list back on the page, or create the new page and just copy and paste the "List of Irish Surnames". John37309 (talk) 09:40, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
