Move request[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved, reliable sources cited in the article (plus The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 18 February 2006, New Straits Times 26 September 2009, io9 23 July 2010 et al., Phillyist 1 December 2010, and Kotaku 3 April 2012) align with Marx Brothers or The Isley Brothers more that the Williams sisters. The only contrary example I could find was Washington City Paper 17 March 2006, which was quoting an unidentified review. -- JHunterJ (talk) 21:12, 24 April 2012 (UTC)


Luna BrothersLuna brothers – Decapitalisation as in other articles on siblings, e.g. Williams sisters. relisted --Mike Cline (talk) 11:27, 16 April 2012 (UTC) --The Evil IP address (talk) 19:16, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose. They are known professionally as the "Luna Brothers". That's not the same as the Williams sisters. PC78 (talk) 20:33, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. How they might prefer the phrase to be styled in professional use is not decisive, for a Wikipedia title. They are, descriptively, the Luna brothers, no matter what else they are billed as. WP:MOSCAPS has a general preference for lower case. NoeticaTea? 04:06, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
    • I disagree. The name isn't merely descriptive, and as a professional duo who apparently work under that name it should be capitalised accordingly. It's like a company name or the name of an act IMO, comparable to the Marx Brothers or The Isley Brothers, and you wouldn't decapitalise those titles. PC78 (talk) 12:46, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Support – it appears that they primarily work under their individual names, and though they style themselves capitalized as The Luna Brothers, that styling is not used consistently in independent secondary sources (reviews and such), where the lower-case styling, like WP style, is also common. No reason the to capitalize beyond what MOS:CAPS recommends. Dicklyon (talk) 07:01, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose―the "Luna Brothers" seems to be more of a title rather than a mere descriptive phrase. Thus, it would seem to be more of a proper noun, unlike the Williams sisters.―New questions? 01:59, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
