How about moving to the commonly used name, Brexit? Or is that only for Wikipedia? Ro Thorpe (talk) 14:32, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

As a supposedly academically oriented site, maybe we prefer more formal, less colloquial names. WP's usual policy (there are of course exceptions, leading to endless arguments) is to use the "common name". Peter Jackson (talk) 17:15, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Then there would be other examples where CZ eschews the common name in favour of a descriptive phrase. When I have time, I'll look around. Ro Thorpe (talk) 13:37, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Just found CZ:Naming conventions, which says we usually follow the same common-name convention as WP, but with exceptions it doesn't specify. Peter Jackson (talk) 14:23, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
One example where we both depart from the principle is Catholic Church, which is its own preferred name for itself, rather than the commoner Roman Catholic Church (redirect). Peter Jackson (talk) 14:24, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
I'd forgotten about this exchange and came here guessed it. I agree with "Catholic Church" by the way; compare the common phrase "Catholics and Protestants". Do we have to ask a constable to move it? Do they still exist? Ro Thorpe (talk) 02:06, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
No, it looks quite moveable. Ro Thorpe (talk) 03:05, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
