Maurer SöhneMaurer AG – Since an anonymous editor at 223.205.243.89 objected to Hmich176 moving this page to Maurer AG because it wasn't discussed, I am opening a discussion here. The company has changed their name and removed "Söhne" from the end per the sources in the article. I would've supported a move to Maurer if that wasn't already taken by a disambiguation page, but adding AG to the end seems like the best WP:NATURALDIS. I will also note that the German Wikipedia's article on this German company is titled "Maurer AG" (de:Maurer AG). The examples at WP:COMMONNAME are mostly articles where the common name is a shortened or abbreviated form of a longer "official" name, but in this case the new official name is shorter than the previous article title. Also, the bottom of WP:COMMONNAME says specifically that common sense should be applied if the subject of an article changes its name. Ahecht (TALK

  • Rename, per nom, also that I was the editor who moved the page in the first place. I chose to be bold and move the article because I thought it would be uncontroversial, for the reasons given in the nomination. --hmich176 06:27, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
