Two of the three sources in this article list this river as the Luvironza, not the Ruvyironza. Please explain why it should not be moved back to Luvironza. Unschool (talk) 04:38, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Google shows about 260 hits for "Luvironza River"+Nile, and about 600 for "Ruvyironza River"+Nile, including most of the more reputable sources (e.g., Encarta, National Geographic). Furthermore, there were more Wikipedia articles linking to the current name than to Luvironza (check the what links here list). It's clear that both names are used, but Ruvyironza seems to be more common, so Luvironza should probably redirect here, not the other way round. As to the sources, I could easily have added sources that only showed one spelling or the other, but thought that one of each at the top made for balance. As for the third one, it was picked largely at random. if you'd prefer a different source for that particular fact, but using the Ruvyironza spelling, then http://www.riverbasin.org/index.cfm?&menuid=101&parentid=87 would work just as well. I suspect that - as with many features in the Central/East Africa border region, there are two names used by two ethnic groups in the region. Grutness...wha? 07:46, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
