  • Comment. Only if he was known by that name. -- Necrothesp (talk) 16:45, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose per WP:COMMONNAME. No evidence is offered that he is commonly known as "JMW II". --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 13:25, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support per WP:NATURALDIS. "JMW II" provides a natural disambiguation, which are encouraged over (this sort of dab). - The Bushranger One ping only 21:03, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose unless it can be shown that he was/is known as "II" (I would have thought "Jr." would have been more likely). Opera hat (talk) 13:21, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
