Care should be taken of the spelling. Patani (one t) is used to describe the country while Pattani (two t:s) is used to describe the province. (talk) 10:26, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

I removed the bit about Tun Mahmud Mahyuddin being promised independence by the Brits: the only source is a rather dodgy "flags of the world" website from which the original sentence was lifted: [1]. Markalexander100 08:21, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Shouldn't we move this article to the Malay spelling Patani? I also added a book I am currently reading, probably I will enlarge the article a bit once finished. andy
The spelling "Patani" has been used in the European languages since 15th.Century. I have seen a printed article written in 1680s in English with the spelling. I who live in Patani Raya (Patani region) I would always cry when I see my region called Pattani (a name of a province) and my language Pattani Malay. NO. My language is Patani Malay. --Pataniraya 21:09, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Googlefight come out 32-30 [2], so I suspect it doesn't matter. It would be a nice lazy way to create the redirect though ;) . Markalexander100 08:53, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

A redirect would be helpful for sure. But as Pattani is the Thai spelling (well, the standard romanized version of the Thai spelling), while Patani is the spelling usually used by Malay sources I think an article about the dominantly Malay history would better fit in the Malay spelling. But both is fine to me. Should we turn Pattani into a disambig page like Ayutthaya? andy 08:57, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I don't have strong feelings about it either, but you could argue that since the kingdom's territory was in what is now Thailand, the Thai spelling is more appropriate. I don't know which spelling the people there use themselves. While we're at it, there's some overlap (and some dispute) between this article and Pattani separatism; the historical content of the latter should probably be moved over here.

The Patani/Pattani kingdom was not exclusively in what is now Thailand - it covered several current southern Thai provinces and a northern portion of modern peninsula Malaysia. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:38, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
