Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no evidence to support move. JPG-GR (talk) 15:38, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Per WP:DAB, the suggested minimum threshold before creating a disambiguation page is three. Additionally, the real person ought to be listed under her own name. Otto4711 (talk) 17:50, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

  • What WP:DAB actually says is However if there are two topics for a term but neither is considered the primary topic, then a disambiguation page is used. I see no evidence that the actual person gets the overwhelming majority of the mentions of this name, and there certainly is no policy or practice to make actual persons primary usage against better-known fictions.

  • Support. Septentrionalis makes good points, but looking at the specifics, this Rachel Gibson is a bestselling author, while the character was only on Alias during the final season. I think there is enough of a claim to primacy here. --Groggy Dice T | C 22:09, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
