Mom

The "Mom" article has been labelled the following levels:

This article appeared on the Main Page for July, 2006. This article (or a prior version) has been identified by the Infosphere community as one of the best.
This article is thoroughly developed.
No focus level has been assigned.

Name[edit]

Since we now know her real name, is this page going to be moved to "Carol"? - UnrealLegend 12:53, 17 September 2011 (CEST)

Considering that she is referred to as Mom almost exclusively (even by herself), and fans and editors will expect this as well, I propose we continue to keep it as 'Mom'. I find this kind of article to be an exception compared to stuff like Steve Castle. --Sviptalk 15:29, 17 September 2011 (CEST)
Okay, just wondering since "Amy Wong" was moved to "Dr. Amy Wong". This seems like a similar thing to me. - UnrealLegend 02:54, 18 September 2011 (CEST)
That's her title, not what she is referred to. The reasoning is because we do it with Zoidberg and Farnsworth. If people have a title (such a doctorate), we include it in the title (although, I don't think that is actually what is recommended, I think it is actually the reverse, but that is a whole other debate). This suggestion is similar to Steve Castle, not Dr. Amy Wong. Steve Castle makes sense to keep as that, because his real name does not ruin his character or significance, while moving the Mom article would. --Sviptalk 07:42, 18 September 2011 (CEST)
