Ken Kunen vs Kenneth Kunen[edit]

I know that Kunen's name officially is "Kenneth Kunen" but among those who know him, his name is almost always "Ken Kunen". At least a redirection should be created, but I humbly suggest that the page should be renamed "Ken Kunen". Kope (talk) 08:00, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

My rule of thumb for mathematician articles is to use the name under which they habitually publish. So Steve Jackson, even though his legal name is Stephen, but Donald A. Martin, even though everyone calls him "Tony". --Trovatore (talk) 08:38, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
That is, not even redirection?Kope (talk) 09:06, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, Ken Kunen should certainly take you to the article, under whatever title is to be given it. But I think the article should probably be at Kenneth Kunen because that seems to be the name he uses in published papers. --Trovatore (talk) 21:41, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
That's what I meant, yes. Thanks. Kope (talk) 12:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
