Lauren CarpenterLauren Turner – Turner is her surname on the show now. Frequent editors of Neighbours articles know this. There are plenty of reliable sources out there that mention this name (including the show's official website and closing credits). 0z (talk) 01:48, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Oppose. Recentism. She has long been known as Lauren Carpenter - she has been known as Lauren Turner for five minutes. There are plenty of sources with the name Carpenter.Rain the 1 01:54, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Oppose. I would think Carpenter is her WP:COMMONNAME. She returned to the show this February as Turner, but has been known as Carpenter since her introduction way back in 1993. All her major storylines occurred under this surname. Here's a hits box for comparison though:

* The vast majority of these hits are for the singer or other women with the name. I counted about four stories about the Neighbours character during a brief look at the various pages. - JuneGloom Talk 13:00, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

When you consider the number of publications that reported on the character during her original stint compared to now - Carpenter is used more. If the internet age had been as it is now back then - there probably would be many more articles at hand. She was known as Carpenter when the show was watched by more people and all of her notable storylines occurred during that time.Rain the 1 17:54, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

As Lauren has now been on the show for a longer period with her married surname of Turner than her maiden name of Carpenter is this not justification enough to rename the article page? Gmanuk2007 (talk) 18:32, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
