Talk:Olaus Rudbeck

Should this article perhaps be moved? He usually wrote his own name Olaus Rudbeck, with the given name in its Latin form, and the family name without the Latin ending that his father (Bishop Johannes Rudbeckius) used. In Sweden today he is better known by the completely Swedish Olof Rudbeck. I don't think the situation is analogous with that of Linnaeus, who is definitely better known in English with the Latin form of the name (as opposed to the post-ennoblement Carl von Linné, by which he is usually referred to in Sweden), as Rudbeck isn't nearly as famous outside Sweden as Linnaeus is. / up+land 20:50, 25 Nov 2004 (UTC)
