Template:Arthurian LegendTemplate:King Arthur and the Matter of Britain

  • Per title. (talk) 00:40, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose I see no reason for renaming this. -- (talk) 02:19, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • That's its title. It was a technical request. -- (talk) 02:24, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Clarification. Templates have both a name and a title. The title is what displays in the title bar. The name is whatever the template is named, and can be really anything. Apteva (talk) 02:31, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Is there a reason for the capital L? -- (talk) 02:32, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • No, but is it worth changing? Apteva (talk) 04:04, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I'd argue that the term "Arthurian Legend" is so thoroughly lexicalized that we should treat it as a proper name. "Arthurian legend" by contrast looks awkwardly generic. -- (talk) 19:30, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Suggestion. Seems to me that Matter of Britain is this template's first and foremost subject, so how about renaming it "Template:Matter of Britain"? CsDix (talk) 21:06, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
    • Except that it isn't, it's focused on Arthurian Legend, not the whole Matter of Britain. A "Matter of Britain" template would be a mostly different template, since it's missing content from the non-Arthurian parts. -- (talk) 03:53, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
      In that case, I guess the proposal should be as originally requested. CsDix (talk) 16:06, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
      Though this portion of the Matter of Britain is frequently called the Arthurian Legend -- (talk) 19:42, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
      If so, then Template:Arthurian legend would seem the name to choose. CsDix (talk) 04:09, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't know if the phrase sounds more natural on the other side of the pond, but to me, "King Arthur and the Matter of Britain" sounds like a mildly interesting Harry Potter-esque Arthurian adventure. A move to Template:Arthurian legend would be prudent, at least. --BDD (talk) 16:13, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose move to the unweildy "Harry Potter-esque" "King Arthur and the Matter of Britain"; support move to "Arthurian legend" if need be.Cúchullain t/c 18:43, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose proposed move, per reasoning of While I do believe that "Arthurian Legend" is a proper name well established in the critical literature, I would not oppose the title "Arthurian legend". --Bejnar (talk) 19:39, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
