One of the main inconsistencies within TG are the different names for a character given randomly in separated pages, specially with the father/mother-names. For example, Maglor's amilesse has its own page (Makalaure), while Finarfin's (Ingalaurë) redirects to his character page. What should be do? I just added the adunaic name of Amandil and I wondered what's the policy about this. Separated articles for every single name or explain them within the sections of Etymology or Other names? --LorenzoCB 22:38, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

The thought at the time was (IIRC) that it was so all the words and phrases could be properly categorized. But time marches on, and this is actually pretty bad SEO. I'm okay with a merge; any language specific categories can be added to the redirects. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:52, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
