Article rename[edit]

I've noticed there are previous discussions of the value of having this article separate from the article "Malta". I would not go into that but on the matter of the name. "Malta Island" is a term that is not in use (and therefore failing to fulfill WP:COMMONNAME) and grammatically incorrect.

I would therefore propose a rename: "Malta (island)". This would be in the same style as the name of the article Hawaii (island) (which case is analogous in that both the group of islands and the largest island are commonly referred to as "Hawaii").
