Why on earth is this party's name partially translated into German in English Wikipedia??? See WP:ENG. Indeed, Swedish rike = German Reich, but as Sweden is a kingdom, the term often refers to national level organisations in general. Outside the construction tredje riket it would never refer to World War II or Adolf Hitler. Thus Riksskatteverket is the Swedish Tax Agency, rather than the "Reich Tax Agency" or anything such, Riksrevisionen is the Swedish National Audit Office, Riksidrottsförbundet is the Swedish Sports Confederation, and so on. Riksorganisationen or Riksförbundet is a common designation on the national secretariat of (fully democratic) Swedish parties. Thus, the word Rikspartiet does not at all have the connotations it's given in translation here. If the party's name is to be translated it would rather be as the Nordic National Party.

I would agree. Nordic National Party or even Nordic State Party, although that would imply unionism. Ganjha (talk) 11:09, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
There are claims in the discussion that "Reich" is a loan word in English. This is false. It only ONLY used in the term "Third Reich" and can't be called a loan word. It is used as a proper name, not a noun. The usage in this title is wrong, "Riksparti" only mean it is not a local party, but a party for all of the state. Hence, the correct translation is "The Nordic National Party".--184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:15, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Oppose on the whole. Ajax Smack's search shows that they are called this; and for something that emerged from a league for "National Socialist Struggle", it seems a quite reasonable name. SeptentrionalisPMAnderson 16:50, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Both "Nordic Reich Party" and "Nordic National Party" along with "Nordic Realm Party" and "Nordic Empire Party" are used by online sources. Some work needs to be done to determine which is preferable beyond users' personal predilections. — AjaxSmack 19:38, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. Sources should be added to the article so that we can make an informed decision.

Just to clarify, do you ask for any sources beyond a dictionary to tell you that "Reich" is neither an English nor a Swedish word? It's just a matter of applying "Use English". Tomas e (talk) 14:09, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Reich is an English [loan-]word, and has been since before the Second World War; whether it is the proper or usual translation of Rik here - it would not be in other contexts - is another question. The OED 's first quotation is from 1921. SeptentrionalisPMAnderson 16:46, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
