Can someone provide sources for use of the name "Mehmed I." Every source I've ever seen uses "Muhammad" or something more like "Muhammad" than like "Mehmed" for the subject of this article. I know "Mehmed" is the modern Turkish form of "Muhammad," and that the subject of this article was a Turk, but it doesn't follow from that that he's normally known in English as "Mehmed." In fact, it doesn't apparently follow that he's known as that in Turkish, since the Turkish wikipedia article is at "Muhammet," not "Mehmed." So I'd like for some citations of what actual reliable sources use. john k (talk) 00:44, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Last name[edit]

In Turkish, Tapar means "he worships" or "worshipper". What is the source for the claim that it means "he who obtains, finds"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:04, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
