Talk:Kingdom of Eswatini Genealogy
Change of Name Needed to Eswatini[edit source]
This page, its parent category, and its related pages should all have their names changed from Kingdom of eSwatini ... to just Eswatini ...
Names of countries in the research wiki are normally based on the current short form of name in English, e.g., it is just Norway not Kingdom of Norway. Consequently, Kingdom of ... is out-of-step.
In addition, Eswatini rather than eSwatini has emerged as the preferred English form and capitalization of the name.
Note the following sources:
- United Nations official list of member nations in English lists Eswatini (See http://www.un.org/en/member-states/)
- United States Board of Geographic names lists Eswatini (See http://geonames.nga.mil/namesgaz/) - names in this database are frequently used by English-language map publishers
- Library of Congress Subject Heading has also been revised from Swaziland to Eswatini (See https://authorities.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?AuthRecID=10976201&v1=1&HC=1&SEQ=20190216141154&PID=LsjfcjI9_re2fSmxOloHka5mZrLc) - Library of Congress Subject Headings are used in library catalogs in most English-speaking countries
Use of the same form of name as found in other prominent English reference sources would facilitate use of the wiki.
