Talk:Naming Conventions

What is suggested when a name is changed over time? For instance Theis Ruell was named Matthies Riehell after about 1670 (likely due to a move to an area where pronunciation of his original name was difficult.)

What is the best way to show both names in the nickname field? Please provide examples. Turnkit 04:52, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

It is rather rude to arbitrarily delete another person's modifications without addressing the issues involved. Please don't do it.

Cleaned up bogus reference to QE II

I removed the "Queen of England" reference in the titles section, and replaced it with something that's actually accurate. She's queen of rather more than England.

However, she does illustrate an important point: while Queen Elizabeth is generally seen as queen of Britain, etc., she is also queen of Canada, Australia, and other countries, and which title is the primary one depends rather on where you are. To a Francophone Canadian, she might legitimately primarily be:

"Sa Majesté Elizabeth Deux, par la grâce de Dieu Reine du Royaume-Uni, du Canada et de ses autres royaumes et territoires, Chef du Commonwealth, Défenseur de la Foi"

... which is her official title, under law and custom.
