::Oh, I see what you were asking now ..there were two articles! I completely forgot I started off as Vlacharnea ... Gees. I know what happened. DCAndrew referred me off to the DEC page ... then I must have noticed that the standardised naming convention their was Blachernitissa and then started the article again ...forgetting I had the other one (I must slow down the number of tasks I do ...I know I am on speed but I hate making these mistakes). So, the question now is ...which one to merge in to? Personally I like the [[Panagia Blachernae]] article to remain because the extension more closely resembles the actual name of the suburb of Blachernai in Constantinople ... but on the other hand the DEC page has her as Blachernitissa. I will update this link with the other articles information ..and then I suppose you guys can resolve which to keep. -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 16:36, February 14, 2008 (PST)
:The usual standpoint for OW articles is to use the most recognised name - but the name of this icon (or most others), well, doesn't have a recognised name because there is a low level of recognition (which these articles are addressing).
:Probably part of the reason that I keep saying 'is this the right name?' is because, well, we haven't really had this problem before. Precedents could be Matins/Orthros (which I was involved in discussing) or the names for the vestments, but there's really no straightforward precedent (Matins/Orthros, everyone knows what it is, it's a question of which is the more widely accepted; the English names for vestments only happen in one service book, and one can assume some level of N.T. Greek education amongst those who have to wear it...icons, however, have had a more church-wide devotion)...
:Which leads into the reason that your articles are being discussed - we've already had big or small discussions over the other names (or groups thereof)!
:As to what style should be used (Blachernae or Blachernitissa), I would personally lean more towards using a V at the beginning (i.e. how beta is pronounced in modern Greek), but...well, you're doing the article, which is more common, or which could gain wider recognition? &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 17:13, February 14, 2008 (PST)
