Category talk:Aliases

I'm now thinking this could just be one article rather than a category. What do you think? I can amend Alys if so.

A list of who uses what names and when would just be good

Other examples include

  • Moiraine - Mari
  • Min - Serenla, Jaisi
  • Siuan - Mara
  • Leane - Amaena
  • Egwene - Joslyn, Tuli
  • Elayne - Caryla, Morelin
  • Nynaeve - Maryim, Nana
  • Verin - Eadwina
  • Ryma - Pura

I was wondering about this. If a name is used frequently, it might deserve its own page, otherwise a re-direct could do, as long as we make sure to specify on the page some instances where the alias is used.

No prob, I just realised they are not full articles but that I would like to see them grouped, it would just be small one liners of who knows them as x, etc. I'll delete this category.

We could use redirects and have the redirect as part of a category (like I have for some of the JMs and former SMs)

I think simply listing the Aliases under the characters profiles would work. Put it under the general tab. Then have a redirect from the alias name to the profile.

That's worth doing For those Aliases not used by real people (Jaisi is an actual person for example) it is worth creating redirects , just so that the Alias can be linked if necessary, or if people search for something - say they are remember one of the characters once used the name Carlya, but can't remember when, then a search would take them straight to Egwene
