Saigyō HōshiSaigyōHōshi ("Buddhist teacher") is not part of his name; it is a title given to monks. Other Wikipedia articles on people conventionally given this title (Kisen, etc.) do not use it. Reliable English sources, including this article's sources Watson and LaFleur, as well as Donald Keene, almost exclusively call him "Saigyō". elvenscout742 (talk) 05:00, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Comment This was the second time I requested for a move like this in a short time frame. The other one led another user to inform me of a more effective way of performing moves like this. Saigyō should be speedy deleted soon enough, at which point I or anyone else can move this page at our leisure. elvenscout742 (talk) 05:52, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
No deletion required. I've just made the move. --gråb whåt you cån (talk) 08:10, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
