1. Should this page be renamed to "Sempronia" using the same naming convention as for the other gens Aemilius, Fabius (which itself needs a disambiguation page), Cornelius (gens), Manlius, Claudius (gens), etc?

1a. Perhaps all these articles on Roman gentes should have the word "gens" in their names. Otherwise,

  • Fabius leads to what should be a disambiguation page but isn't (it has a disambiguation for Laurent Fabius, and information on the Roman gens and also links to places named Fabius);
  • Claudius leads to the emperor (with a disambiguation link, which then leads to the page on the gens).
  • Cornelius leads to a disambiguation page, and thence to the page on the Roman gens.
  • Manlius and Aemilius would need to be renamed then.

There is no naming convention for articles on Roman gens. I discovered this in adding to this article.

2. Should this article on the gens Sempronia be divided up with redirects for the Gracchi who are the most famous branch (as an article exists for the Scipio branch of the Cornelii)? On the other hand, I plan to write an article on the Tiberius Sempronius who was consul in the Second Punic War, so would put that information into his own page.
