BP:PNC

Proposed Name Changes lists articles that are proposed to be moved to a different title.

While it should be clear for most articles what the title should be from our naming conventions, there are those which are not so straightforward. An example of this includes a minifigure which is given two different names in the same official description.

Voting will last for a maximum of one week, with the article being moved to the highest vote count. If a vote reaches a ratio of 3:1 (or 3/0), the voting may be concluded and the article moved. Nominations whose names are clearly defined in the naming conventions may be struck by an administrator.

A list of past proposals is available here.

If you want to make a new suggestion, please use the following syntax:

# Why is there even an an argument over this? It's his full name- it's like renaming "George W. Bush" to "George (former US president)" on Wikipedia (used this because there isn't a whole lot of ambiguity over "Barack"- it's actually simply a redirect page on Wikipedia :P) NightblazeSaber 07:08, April 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • I get what you mean and thats why i was changing it back but CP was renaming the article just because Jay is only called Jay Walker in the tv show not in anything else.Clone gunner commander jedi talk

  • Just keep it Jay (Ninjago). "Jaywalker" is a stupid name anyway, and Jay isn't even officially referred to as Jay Walker in the TV series, it's just common sense that his last name is Walker because his parent's are referred to "Walker". And no one really knows about "Jay Walker" anyway, just "Jay". |<o\+e|\| \/. 00:50, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Cave Troll, move to "Cave-troll"


Move

Keep

  • My vote's for boxart. As far as most correct in-universe name, I have no idea, and it looks like the LOTR Wiki doesn't either (they call the page Cave-troll but caption their images Cave Troll) NightblazeSaber 10:28, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Katana (Minifigure), move to "Katana (character)"

The following section is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. The result was moved

Move

  1. Probably too minor to really bother talking about either way. But Katana has never appeared as an actual minifigure per se, but only as a video game character. NightblazeSaber 07:00, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

Discussion

  • True, but I don't think it really matters. I think we could actually name her Katana, though, just with a redirect otherpage template to the part which could be called Katana. --Berrybrick (Talk) 11:40, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

Jay (Ninjago), move to "Jay"

I know that there is a nomination to rename the page above, but it really should have been closed by now. The reason the page has "(Ninjago)" at the end is because of this guy who I think it is safe to say nobody has ever given much thought to. If somebody types "jay" into the search bar, who do you think they are looking for? Some minor character in a game that came out about ten years ago or a main character in one of the most popular themes of all time?

Discussion

  • Move, as nominator. --Berrybrick (Talk) 18:42, August 7, 2012 (UTC)
  • I've speedily done it. Its the most notable one and therefore should be the main one (BP:UCS). ~ CJC 20:15, August 7, 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah, it was bugging me typing in the (Ninjago) every time I wanted the Jay page. Tagged the page with {{OtherPage}} though. NightblazeSaber 23:05, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

Football Player (Minifigures), move to "Football Player"


  • Move. We don't have a page called "Football Player", it's the only minifigure officially referred to as a "Football Player", why not have it there? NightblazeSaber 01:10, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
  • Done, UCS. It is the only 'Football Player'. - nxt
The following section is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. The result was Keep at Mandalorian

Mandalorian, move to "Death Watch"

These are the Death watch - not the Mandalorians. The Death Watch were a splinter group, violent and very different from the Mandos. Jango Fett and Boba Fett are True Mandalorians. I suggest this page be renamed to "Death Watch" and a "Mandalorian" page be created for Jango and Boba. Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge

I'll admit, Mandalorians and Yuuzhan Vong are my biggest two weak areas in knowledge about major galactic factions, so I'm not 100% set on my vote. In my opinion, I think it should stay as Mandalorian- to me, Death Watch, while it is a spinter group, I still think still falls under the "Mandalorian" umbrella, along with the True Mandalorians, New Mandalorians, Mandalorian Supercommandos, and who knows what else. From BP:NC: For minifigures from a licensed theme, minifigures should be given the name that they are given on any official LEGO website, box or other official LEGO material, unless the name clearly contradicts the name of the character is meant to represent (it's obviously the bit in bold we're discussing). I just don't think it's a large enough contradiction personally. NightblazeSaber 05:05, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Well, for a bit of background on the history of the Death Watch, they broke off from the Mandalorians and basically declared war on them, ending when the Death Watch framed the Mandos for a massacre and brought the Jedi to help them get rid of the "Mandalorian threat". That's why Jango and Boba were the only Mandos left for a time: the Jedi exterminated them. I would call that a clear contradiction of the character of the Death Watch, yes. As for the True Mandalorians and the Supercommandos, they are both part of the same faction and both fall under the category "Mandalorian". The New Mandalorians is a term made up for the Clone Wars and directly contradicts everything in the Mandalorian nature. The Wookiepedia pages, if you wish to see them, are here:
New Mandalorians
Mandalorian Civil War
Death Watch
Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge
Keep. LEGO never refers to them as Death Watch, so, we shouldn't. Last year we had this problem with others but we use whatever name LEGO uses. So, keep as Mandalorian. --Czech 05:24, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
The thing is, no matter what LEGO calls them, they aren't Mandalorians. They are the Mandalorians' worst enemy. Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge
We use LEGO's name for them, and they are from Mandalore (most of the time) --Czech 05:40, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Per NBS and that ^ --Berrybrick (Talk) 16:35, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Per Jeyo. I've seen a lot of faulty links, such as something like "Jango's parents were killed by the Death Watch, and he was rescued by the "true mandalorians" which links to the death watch. Jay

Alexis Sinister, move to "Alexia Sinister"

The last discussion on this didn't end too well, missed important information, and got some information wrong entirely. So let's just start over on this, and have a nice, mature discussion, okay? :)

So, here's a breakdown of this character's various names, and where each one was used.

  • Alexia Sinister: Her North American name, used in LEGO Mania Magazine, LEGO catalogs, etc, all that sort of stuff. Her primary name, and really the only name that isn't on shaky ground.
  • Alexia Sanister: In LEGO Racers 2, for some reason, both Sam Sinister and Alexia Sinister had their last names spelled as "Sanister". I noticed that in the previous discussion on this, people were saying her first name in LEGO Racers 2 was Alexis, but when I went in-game to check it out myself...
... She was named Alexia. And yes, I was playing on an unmodified copy of the game, a fresh installation. So I'm not really sure where the whole "Alexis in LR2" thing came from. If, for some bizarre reason, your copy of LEGO Racers 2 calls her Alexis, please post a screenshot.
  • Alexis Gluipstra: According to somebody on Lugnet, this was her name in the Netherlands. Unconfirmed, and certainly not an option as this wiki uses North American names whenever possible, but still worth mentioning in my opinion. http://news.lugnet.com/adventurers/?n=1156

"Alexia" is the most widely spread name from all the sources I've seen so far, with "Alexis" only being used in an error-ridden book and possibly the Netherlands. If anybody has information I may have missed - such as a confirmation of what her name was in the Netherlands - please post it. Otherwise, I say we should move this page back to "Alexia Sinister". Thanks! Jamesster.LEGO (talk) 17:29, 9/11/2012

  • Move. I thought LR2 said Alexis, but if I imagined it that reinforces my vote. I'll try to check later. --TheLairOfRockwhales 20:03, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes ~ CJC 20:50, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Sam Sinister, move to "Slyboots"

See Talk:Sam Sinister for a full explanation. In short, Sam Sinister was an old name for this character that was later given to a different character (see Lord Sam Sinister), and his current name is Slyboots.

Discussion

  • Move, but emphasize the name change; he was still called Sam Sinister as late as 2002 in some media --TheLairOfRockwhales 20:49, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • Move per Lair ~ CJC
  • Move I've noticed this too. TLG have sort of changed his name in certain media and sets with the confusion of Barron Von Baron or Sam Sinister in Orient Expedition? It confuses the heck out out of me, but changing it to Slyboots may help. - Power Jim Talk Blogz04:25, 11/5/2012 04:25, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

Gollum/Sméagol

  • For the whole Gollum/Sméagol thing, are we going to take the Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker route, or just keep them on the same page? NightblazeSaber 22:59, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
  • I would say keep it on the same page; Sméagol has very little screen time and hasn't even been released as a minifigure.
  • Neutral Per above, yet they are almost different characters, like Anakin and Vader. --Berrybrick (Talk) 19:27, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
  • keep| You are not right, my Preciousssssssss. We are still the same persons. One part of us is Smeagol, and the other part is gollum, gollum, but we have the same body. Who else has the same body, but two pages? Smeagol

Saruman, move to "Saruman the White"

If we have Gandalf the Grey, why is Saruman just "Saruman"?

Discussion

  • Move, as nominator. Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge
  • KeepSaruman keeps it open up to variations. Similarly, when/if a Gandalf the White variation is revealed for the video game, we would probably move the page to Gandalf. --Berrybrick (Talk) 19:26, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep Per Berry. Darth henry The Dojo Turtles! 19:27, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
  • If there is no official source actually stating the name of the character, move to whatever name is most correct from an in-universe point of view, until names of the variants are released. <-- long reason :P NightblazeSaber 09:29, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
  • Simple solution - What does LEGO call him? 92.233.187.246 10:48, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
    • Nothing yet. The only source we have for him is an uncaptioned picture. NightblazeSaber 11:49, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep, Per Berry and he wasnt the white anymore after Gandalf came back anyways. Irnakk Ash nazg Talkpage One Ring To Bore Them All.The-one-ring
  • So, now the game's out, is he called Saruman or Saruman the White when he's unlocked as a playable character? (I still don't have enough money to buy him :P) NightblazeSaber 03:16, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep Fire InfernalRaceLord talk, Lord of NothingFire Infernal

The Scarecrow or Scarecrow?

  • I have no idea which is more correct in-universe, but he's been officially referred to as both. Just wondering if I could get some clarification from a DC expert. Thanks :) NightblazeSaber 11:58, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Depends. I think I have seen LEGO use "The" more though. --Berrybrick (Talk) 18:55, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Medusa to Gorgon

The following section is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it.

The source for the names is very questionable (I'm not even sure why it is even a valid source, seems like a fansite to me) but Gorgon is a more open name than Medusa, which is only a character.

  • Medusa isn't confirmed by LEGO. That logic really irks me. -__- --Berrybrick (Talk) 00:36, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes but it's a rumored and/or pre-liminary name, Medusa is what she is known by the most and because of so I doubt LEGO will use a lesser known name aka Gorgon. Jedi master sith Spider Talk Ultimate Spider-Man! Legospidey 00:42, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
      • Rumored and/or preliminary? Because those are always right. >_> That is not at all what confirmation means. I actually doubt that LEGO would use the name Medusa, since that is a character's name. Why did they call "Red Riding Hood" Grandma visitor? (The only minifigure who actually has a name is Santa, and what else would they call him, Jolly Prowler?) --Berrybrick (Talk) 00:47, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
        • I did not say it was the right name, nor do I think rumored name's are true, but it should stay as it is, take for example Mr. Good and Evil, his rumored name was Dr. Splitz and it was kept that way until the web site was up. And for all I care her real name could be "Snake-woman" or something and in reality no one know's the real name's of any of them. "Wait and see." Jedi master sith Spider Talk Ultimate Spider-Man! Legospidey 00:56, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
          • There was actually a Medusa enemy in LEGO Universe, if that affects anything. Jamesster.LEGO (talk) 00:58, 12/11/2012
          • That is exactly why the vote was slashed. Where did this name came from? Somebody made it up to describe the figure, and it wasn't LEGO. I know I can't convince you, since you are stubborn and have awful logical reasoning, but did they wait and see? Heck, with your logic, why don't we rename every figure "TBA Series 10 Minifigure 1-16"? (Don't say that is stupid, that is your reasoning). (Oh, and do you know what conjecture means? That word that we post on every article like this?) (Oh, and the way I see it, not really.) --Berrybrick (Talk) 01:00, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
            • Dude...chill out, I was just saying it should not be changed to Gorgon. Stick to the pre-liminary/rumored name like we always do until we get the "real" name. Jedi master sith Spider Talk Ultimate Spider-Man! Legospidey 01:07, December 11, 2012 (UTC)


Rawzom or Rawsom?

Is his name Rawzom or Rawsom? His LEGO.com page says his name is Rawzom (as well as 70006 Cragger's Command Ship box), while Weapon pages like Slashersekt say his name is Rawsom. It could be a typo.

  • Move to Rawzom, the page should be Rawzom because the box and Character Bio on LEGO.com say its Rawzom. While the Weapons say Rawsom but it could be a Typo (3 times on Slashersekt). Fire InfernalRaceLord talk, Lord of NothingFire Infernal
  • Keep at Rawsom, it sounds better, and more likely to be how it is to be pronounced on the show, and the pun on his joke has "awesome" which rhymes better with "Rawsom". --Czech 01:17, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
  • Move back to Rawzom; it's the official name. How good it sounds/looks has nothing to do with it. Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge 01:19, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't even know why the name was changed to Rawsom in the first place, as it was never brought up here. With that and BP:UCS in mind, I'm going to change it back now. Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge 06:41, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

War Machine, move to "Iron Patriot"

The following section is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it.
  • as nominator. Jedi master sith Spider Talk Ultimate Spider-Man! Legospidey
  • I realize that the War Machine armor is painted to look like Iron Patriot in the movie, but I have not heard of an official confirmation that he changes his name to Iron Patriot. Besides, this look is obviously the "War Machine" one with the grays, while Iron Patriot is red and blue. --Berrybrick (Talk) 19:59, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • Per Berry Jeyo Lord VladekTalk The Forge 20:00, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • It's War Machine, no proof he changes his name. Plus we only have proof that War Machine's Mark II suit(Grey and Dark Grey) appears in one set. We have no proof that his Iron Patriot suit is a variation or a set which it appears(if it appears at all). Even if he did change his name, we would list it as a variation not change the name. Djgourhan (talk) 20:07, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • Closed. He is named War Machine. He has never officially been referred to as Iron Patriot. Moving from a confirmed name to a name based on rumour is not going to happen. NightblazeSaber 23:49, January 24, 2013 (UTC)


Friends collectable animals, move to "Friends animals (polybags)"

This article was nominated to deletion due to not being official. I encountered some problems defining the name of this page but I'm sure this bunch of nine sets (40117-41025 so far) organized in 3 series should have a page of its own. On Lego.com all information about sets 41017-41019 are available by accessing liks: Friends -> Animals. Dear Brickipedians, if you can give this article better, more official name - please help.

Agent Phil Coulson, move to Phil Coulson

  • I know Tony thought his first name was "Agent", but Agent's just a title. When we don't yet have a name from LEGO, we usually go by the most correct in-universe name (not name and title) NightblazeSaber 22:59, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
  • Move. He is called Philip, but I think Phil Coulson is accurate, same way we have Bruce Banner and not Robert Bruce Banner, or Tony Stark instead of Anthony Stark. Agent Phil Coulson makes the name too long, plus in the Marvel Universe he's known as either Phil Coulson or Agent Coulson, not the three names. Bridgetterocks My talk!!! 21:25, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Lord Garmadon, move to "Garmadon"

The TV show made it pretty clear that he is good now, and since next year's sets seem to be calling him "Sensei Garmadon" I think that the page should be moved to just "Garmadon" but "Sensei Garmadon" would make sense too, I suppose. (I wouldn't advocate doing the same thing for Wu though, because we don't really know what's going on there.) --Berrybrick (Talk)

Discussion

  • Move, as nominator. --Berrybrick (Talk) 23:46, October 13, 2013 (UTC)
  • Don't Move. They (the ninja) may still refer to him as "Lord", and this will also require a redirect for Lloyd. I'd like to wait until we get more information, and maybe some TV series leaks. --Jay 23:51, October 13, 2013 (UTC)(Now that I think about it, it would be cool to actually type in "Garmadon" and get the page link. --Jay 20:47, December 17, 2013 (UTC))
  • You are basing your vote off of speculation, and I don't see why this would require a name change for Lloyd. His name is still the same. --Berrybrick (Talk) 23:53, October 13, 2013 (UTC)

DC Universe to DC Comics

It's DC's new name and branding for themselves and the new 2014 boxes have the new branding. I think we should change it, even if we had two years of it being called Universe, when DC had already changed it name with the New 52 relaunch. Djgourhan (talk) 21:20, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
