Renamed article[edit]

This move appears to be a controversial one and should have been discussed before moving to obtain consensus. The pre-move name was clearly the WP:COMMONNAME. ww2censor (talk) 22:05, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

I've moved it back. Scolaire (talk) 14:52, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
At the same time, it might not be a bad idea to move Southern Ireland. The term is far more commonly used to mean either the Irish state or the southern counties of Ireland than it is to refer to an early 20th-century political entity that never existed in fact. Southern Ireland (Autonomous region of the United Kingdom) is a hideous title, as well as being inaccurate, since there are no reliable sources saying that it was such a thing, but possibly "Southern Ireland (Government of Ireland Act 1920)" would be a less awful alternative. I would suggest that "Southern Ireland" should then become a redirect to Republic of Ireland, with an appropriate hatnote on that article. Scolaire (talk) 15:54, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
I would suggest a disam page, with electoral and sub-regions that also use SI. Murry1975 (talk) 18:12, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

I have copied this discussion to Talk:Southern Ireland#Article title. --Scolaire (talk) 18:28, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
