How to treat Derry?[edit]

How should we treat Derry here? My thinking is to use the same logic as the consensus we seem to have on the City Status in the United Kingdom page and to call it Londonderry, so I'm going to do that and see if anyone reverts. If they do, then I suppose we discuss it :) (talk) 21:07, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

This is not the British Wikipedia. O Fenian (talk) 21:08, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
No, but this is a list of UK cities. Common sense suggests we use the official terminology in lists like this, and whatever terminology people want elsewhere. Kind of like Bombay/Mumbai, for example. (talk) 21:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Your edit summary suggests other motives. There is no reason for the use of inconsistent terminology. O Fenian (talk) 21:15, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
You're magnificently paranoid. Amusingly, three days ago I didn't care about this at all, but now I feel as though I have no option but to. (talk) 21:20, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
