Doug Ford (disambiguation)Douglas Ford (disambiguation) – To use full form of name for DAB page. Was going to WP:BeBold and move it, but there have been recent RM discussions on this article. jamacfarlane (talk) 17:20, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

  • The most notable entries other than the primary are the golfer and the musician, both of whom have articles titled "Doug". —  AjaxSmack  03:07, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose - 4 "Doug" (one primary) vs 2 "Douglas" entries. -- Netoholic @ 05:19, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
  • My logic is that per WP:DABNAME, "the simplest form of the term is preferred" for a DAB page title. "Doug" is a diminutive form of "Douglas"; it is not that there is one name with two spellings. jamacfarlane (talk) 05:09, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose. We usually use the name with the most entries on dab pages like this, especially when one of them is primary. -- Necrothesp (talk) 13:48, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
