Roderick or Roderic[edit]

An editor changed "'Pope Alexander VI, born Roderic Llançol i de Borja " to "Pope Alexander VI, born Roderick Borgia (Valencian: Roderic Llançol i de Borja". But should it be "Roderick Borgia" or "Roderic Borgia"?

I have changed it from "Roderick Borgia" to "Roderic Borgia", because the later seems more normal.-- Toddy1 (talk) 11:49, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

After going through the talk page, I realised from discussions in 2004-2005 that I should have checked for "Rodrigo Borgia". This is vastly more common in English.-- Toddy1 (talk) 12:14, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
