Title of Article

Greetings. I would like to suggest perhaps shortening the title of this article to "Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Mexico (Central America)."

The homepage for the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto formally uses the title "Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto (Canada)", and I have seen references in the past to the Mexican Metropolis following the same naming format, i.e. "Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Mexico (Central America)."

Wikipedia uses the following convention however: Greek Orthodox "Metropolis of Mexico and Exarchate of All Central America and the Caribbean".

Not sure which is best, as the Metropolis' homepage is not up yet so as to verify the official name.

In principle I agree. I think, in general, the title should characterize the official titles, but I find that sometimes the "official" organizations seem to vary titles enough to be confusing, particularly in the seeming interchange of use of bishoprics, dioceses, eparchy, metropolis/metropolia, etc.! But, for Orthodoxwiki perhaps a "semi-offlcial" title is okay for the few really long titles, like this one. Wsk 20:16, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
