:Well, I'm going to go ahead and make the other article a redirect to this one. If a consensus of "best name" is reached after that, we can always change it. In the meantime, it might be useful to include alternate spellings so that people who know it by only one name can still find this article. —[[User:Magda|<b>magda</b>]] ([[User_talk:Magda|talk]]) 19:02, February 14, 2008 (PST)
::That sounds like a good idea. I will do a bit more research into this because it just occured to me during lunch that there are two locations with the same 'name' - the first is Constantinople and the second is in Greece. Both of these places have an icon bearing 'smilar' name it is worthwhile finding out if they are considered the 'same' icon (ie. The one in Greece is a copy of that in Constantinople) or if each has been named after its respective location (this is certain for the one in Constantinople and it would appear is the case for the one in Vlacherna, Greece - since they have a Church named after this location). However, I am not sure for certain and can only assume at this stage ...that similar icon with same name until proved otherwise!! I love it ... I feel like Inspector Gadget! -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 19:08, February 14, 2008 (PST)
:You are, of course, quite right - information should not be limited to that which neophytes know. The point is more that we don't have an official OW style as to how to refer to these icons, i.e. ''how'' information is presented (rather than ''what'' information) - this is good information, and it's definitely one of the 'competitive advantages' that OW has; the only reason that I ponder which word is better is because of a desire to make sure that people who are interested can be connected with their interest. It probably doesn't look it, but my motivations are to support! &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 19:21, February 14, 2008 (PST)
::Oh no, dont go thinking I cant see how devoted you are to Orthodoxy. I dont believe that you would take so much care and effort and time to this if you didnt ... my concern is this, if someone (neophytes) dont know about something or what they are looking for would a name difference make all that much of a difference? Its not that necessary, I think at least, to completely put rules around (limiting this conversation to the icons of the Theotokos only) the names because then it might become too restrictive ... in anything with life, I think, when we become too restrictive we become less creative and lose the enthusiasm ... What do you think? BTW, should this entire discussion be cut and pasted under my Ixthis888 account under a "panagia Blachernitissa" category? Im just conscious of how lengthy this discussion is! .. and its a good discussion too! -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]]
