Is the title now correct?[edit]

I was under the impression that the plural of Primus was Primi (from the Latin). So I think the recent renaming may not be correct.

The thing is that this isn't a Latin word. It is a specialist Scots term in the English-language. This book (ISBN-13: 9781155837802) would seem to suggest "Primuses" has been used; I can find no evidence of primi in this context. DBD 01:03, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

The book you quote is a recent publication (2010), however in a discussion with the most recently retired Primus, he considered the plural was either as per the latin or was the same as the singular, considering adding additional "es" to make the plural clumsy. --Stewart (talk | edits) 20:48, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
