I do admit to being unfamiliar with this icon and church. However, it strikes me that "Panagia tou Harou" may not fit with OrthodoxWiki's attempt to name articles with "standard English spelling and usage." I don't know enough about this instance to say whether it should be an exception, but I would like to ask someone who does know or can find out whether "Virgin Mary of Haron" or "Panagia of Haron" would be more in keeping with the Style Manual's naming conventions. It is not a question of "believing" whether this is the name of the icon, but whether this particular name is commonly used in English-speaking countries, rather than being a transliteration of the Greek. I hope I'm making sense here. —magda (talk) 00:34, May 2, 2008 (UTC)
