Disambiguation?[edit]

I find it strange that the common term "Prussian blue", which refers unambiguously to a color/pigment, is a disambiguation page. The other uses are capitalized and refer to more or less ephemeral pop culture entities. I suggest a dab page for "Prussian Blue" and moving "Prussian blue (color)" back to "Prussian blue" (with a dab notice of course). --Macrakis 19:14, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Well, I agree that the pigment is the original and most common usage, but Worldmaster0 tried to make Prussian blue redirect to Prussian Blue (American duo). A dab page is a good compromise in the case of any disagreement. —Keenan Pepper 20:27, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
It is a compromise, but is it a good compromise? Why can't Prussian Blue be the dab page for the various bands etc., and Prussian blue be the page for the color/pigment? --Macrakis 20:44, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
That sounds good to me. —Keenan Pepper 20:47, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
Making Prussian Blue a dab page and Prussian blue an unrelated page sounds like a terrible idea to me. Figuring out the specifics of captialization and articles on Wikipedia is hard enough without that sort of thing. If you want to axe this dab page, I suggest putting a disambiguation notice at the top of prussian blue (the pigment). You know,"this page is about the pigment. For blah, see blah. For yada, see yada." The Literate Engineer 21:53, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
The pigment is the only well known and unambiguous "Prussian Blue" out there I thought, and because one person changes it doesn't mean we should put this dab page up...Ravenmasterq 03:37, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Why is it called Prussian Blue? Is it because it can be made using prussic acid? (or perhaps vice-versa?) Ben Finn 13:29, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
