Spelling of the name Jean-Baptiste[edit]

Hi, I realized that the English Wikipedia is the only one which spells d'Anville's name without a hyphen. I looked a bit, and all possible French sources (the guy was French), including the very serious Bibliothèque Nationale de France (see here) spells Jean-Baptiste with a hyphen. It being a French name and all, I am wondering if there isn't a mistake here, which has been (as I found out through prodding) repercuted in many English language sources about this person. I don't want to go about changing the name of the page without having a second opinion on this. Thanks for your help. notafish }<';> 23:39, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
