made Umlaut 'ö' consistent throughout page. 'ö' and 'oe' are legal German equivalents ('oe' being the sort key). Maybe someone French can review this, as WD certainly was French more than German. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:10, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

proposed move[edit]

I suggest we retitle the page "Wolfgang Döblin", i.e. with an ö instead of oe. This would be consistent with the German and French wikipedia pages, and seems to be standard. Any objections? Sindinero (talk) 07:55, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Doeblin himself explicitly chose to spell his name with oe instead of ö, see for example Also, all of his articles use oe; I therefore propose to revert to that spelling. Hairer (talk) 13:40, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

If Markov lived from June 14, 1856 – July 20, 1922, how can Doeblin been 'ahead of his time'? Needs clarification
