The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

the correct page title is Johannes Maas[edit]

Google results for:

  • "Johannes Maas" -wiki +cyclist - about 99
  • "Johannes Maas" -wiki +olympic - about 163
  • "Johannes Leonardus Maas" -wiki +cyclist - 7
  • "johannes Leonardus maas" -wiki +olympic - 9

Clearly, the middle name is not as common, and thus should not be included in the title. Maher-shalal-hashbaz (talk) 00:49, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

CLEARLY? The Olympic Committee uses the name Jan Maas, which is his nickname. I am not sure if you read my comments about the move. The only clear reference for Johannes Maas in Google is the WP article. The bulk of the references on Google are about the Johannes Maas who heads an organization in Asia. That article was deleted either by you or someone else without a page on Wikipedia. รัก-ไทย (talk) 04:00, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

You haven't demonstrated a single reliable source that uses his middle name. Here's an example of a reliable source: Sports Illustrated. Maher-shalal-hashbaz (talk) 04:41, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

In the 1928 report of the Olympics he is clearly identified many times as Jan Maas. The 1924 report calls him Johannes only one time. The editor above did not do his research. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 49.230.103.211 (talk) 16:18, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
You need to take this a WP:RM due to the comments above. At any rate, the article would be at Jan Maas not "Jan" Maas as per WP:COMMONNAME. Severo (talk) 21:44, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
It has been demonstrated above that he is primarily referred to as Jan Maas. I added the quotation marks because there is another Jan Maas, but he is listed as Jan Maas (sailor). So I have removed the quotation marks and added cyclist. Thank you for your advice. รัก-ไทย (talk) 06:24, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
