Rename to Sha`ban[edit]

Per MOS-Ar. Because of the strict transliteration as seen on the AH page (Sha‘bān), the preferred standard transliteration should be Sha`ban. Additionally, googling "Sha'aban" and "Sha`ban", results in 155k and 389k hits respectively, favouring the latter spelling. I also know that in Indonesian/Malay, the month's name is pronounced in two syllables (i.e. Sha`ban, although written Syaban/Sya'ban); not sure about the Arab way, but I assume it's the same, considering the strict transliteration. My point is: the second "a" has to go. - HyperGaruda (talk) 10:10, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

I agree. The Islamic month names on WP should be based (as far as possible) on those given in the main page dealing with the Islamic calendar. AstroLynx (talk) 12:04, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

I notice that navbox {{IslamicMonths}} has "Sha'ban", but infobox {{muslimmonths}} has "Sha'aban". Pelagic (talk) 15:54, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
I know. The Sha'aban/Sha`ban issue was the reason for discussing the straight apostrophe vs grave accent on MOSAR. After a revert of my initial move to Sha`ban, I did not dare to make further adjustments until the conventions were updated. - HyperGaruda (talk) 16:39, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
