I like the idea of having a list (with links) of various titles given to the Mother of God; but if I cuold suggest that perhaps it could be given a title that anglophone people would naturally understand?  Perhaps 'Titles of the Theotokos'? &mdash; edited by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 22:24, January 23, 2008 (PST)

:Hi, I understand your point about 'Anglophone' people understanding it .. however, a lot of the English language is by far based on 'Greek' ... Theotokonymia is a legitimate english expression ... as are all word relating to 'phobia' etc. I think its not too good to deviate away from this word since this is an Encyclopedia for Orthodox not for cultures - though is not "Theotokos" universal as is "panagia" ... These are my thoughts ... I hope that the decision is to maintain this word ..it truly is unique to our Panagia ... [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 22:29, January 23, 2008 (PST)

If this list really does have potentially over 6000 entries, I think it's a good candidate to be moved to OrthodoxSource, with a brief article left here defining the term and perhaps listing some of the more prominent names. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 06:18, January 22, 2008 (PST)

Hi Father Andrew, I was planning on developing this over the next few months ... and counting on other people to contribute in the long run ... also. If you think it is best to be done in Orthodox Source I will go ahead and register myself on that site. Vasiliki 13:34, January 22, 2008 (PST)
PS, when I tried to create an account on OrthodoxSource, I had an Error 403 issue ... I sent an email and am waiting to find out what the issue is. Vasiliki 13:52, January 22, 2008 (PST)

I like the idea of having a list (with links) of various titles given to the Mother of God; but if I cuold suggest that perhaps it could be given a title that anglophone people would naturally understand? Perhaps 'Titles of the Theotokos'? — edited by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 22:24, January 23, 2008 (PST)

Hi, I understand your point about 'Anglophone' people understanding it .. however, a lot of the English language is by far based on 'Greek' ... Theotokonymia is a legitimate english expression ... as are all word relating to 'phobia' etc. I think its not too good to deviate away from this word since this is an Encyclopedia for Orthodox not for cultures - though is not "Theotokos" universal as is "panagia" ... These are my thoughts ... I hope that the decision is to maintain this word ..it truly is unique to our Panagia ... Vasiliki 22:29, January 23, 2008 (PST)
