Naming biographical articles[edit]

I recently created Adele Briscoe Looscan. I created this from her first name, maiden name, married name. This was easy because this is the name she used for her by-line in articles. Bearing in mind WP:MoS#Article titles, any suggestions for a default format? Should I rename this? I have another article which I will release today or tomorrow, so any comments would be appreciated. thanks, Oldsanfelipe (talk) 17:04, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

The format to use is the most commonly used form, but is set out in a lot of detail at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people). The form she used in her bylines seems the best choice here. But then we should provide redirects from every other form which is mentioned in the article, or used in any of the sources, or otherwise seems likely. I've added a clutch of redirects to this one. Sometimes, though not this time, creating redirects like that finds a handful of redlinks to turn blue, as when someone is listed in a list of prizewinners under the fullest form of their name. Happy Editing. PamD 18:09, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
