Tolkien Gateway


Now, here's a definite case of ambiguity. If you look at what links here we get this:

The Dead 3
Oathbreakers 6
Army of the Dead 8
Dead Men 8
Dead Men of Dunharrow 9

I don't really know, however, which of these is the best option, though. I think Army of the Dead is the most common, but I'm not really sure. Is this article best left where it is or should it be moved; if so, where to? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:17, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

I personallly think we should keep it at Oathbreakers, I think it's most used (if excluding the Army of the Dead). Army of the Dead is (almost) only used in adaptations. --Amroth 18:23, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
For the record, there are ten mentions of "The Dead", four mentions of "Dead Men", one mention of "Dead Men of Dunharrow" and only two mentions of Oathbreakers. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:33, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
I think that, for search engine optimalization, Dead Men of Dunharrow is the best choice, even if it only appears once. It's the best known name as far as I know. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:45, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Ederchil. — Mithrennaith 06:24, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
I would favour "Dead Men" myself (and not "Dead men") as it's more tidy, I think " of Dunharrow" is unnecessary (and we can put the full description in the opening paragraph), and because Dead Men is more common in TLOTR than Dead Men of Dunharrow. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:02, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
I have to say, I thought "Army of the Dead" would work best in terms of SEO. Nonetheless the logic behind "Dead Men" makes a lot of sense. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:30, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
+1 to "Dead Men".--Morgan 13:22, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
