The tag naming-convention has already been used for a variety of questions covering:
- geography place names
- inputting names into gen.software
- denoting adoptions
- language use
- historical vs. modern names
- culture-specific naming conventions (French)
I'm just wondering what the scope of this tag might be. Is it a catch-all for anything to do with a name? Does that mean that variations in spelling of family & given names would also be tagged thus?
In my own question How do I research Chinese names that have been Americanized? I eschewed this tag and instead created the tag chinese-names, which I don't particularly like (and question whether it'll be used again in the next 6 months), even though Chinese names do present particularly tricky problems. But then again, don't other cultures have their own name-related conundrums (for example the French question)? Swedish names, Scottish names, they all have peculiarities. - Yet, someone might choose to follow/subscribe to a tag called scottish-names, whereas they might not want to follow a "naming-convention" tag.
Should chinese-names be deleted and everything just put under naming-convention?
