Considering that the term "northern Ndebele" lacks references, and the name was changed without discussion from "Ndebele" last year, I propose that the article be renamed "Sindebele" as that is actually the name of the language.--AssegaiAli (talk) 12:18, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
I agree as that term "Sindebele" is used a lot in the article-- (talk) 20:59, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

"Northern" is ambiguous[edit]

I'm about to publish an edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in this language. The translator, who works at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, says: "I would also advise that we refer to the language as Zimbabwean Ndebele instead of Northern Ndebele. Northern Ndebele is ambiguous as it is also used to distinguish between two dialects of South African Ndebele (Northern Ndebele and Southern Ndebele)." Since South Africa's Southern Ndebele (called just Ndebele) has Northern and Southern dialects (Northern Southern Ndebele and Southern Southern Ndebele) it makes best sense to use the term Zimbabwean Ndebele as i is unambiguous. -- Evertype· 11:02, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
