GasconEdit

Are your sure that "Miquelon" is Basque. -on is, I recall, a diminutive suffix in Gascon language as in Peyruton, "Pete"? French Basque Country was multilingual in Basque, Gascon and French. But, probably the names were cross-language.


There were never any Gascon fishermen in Miquelon.
The island was a Basque fishing station during the XVIIth century with many fishermen who's first name was "Miquelon" or Michael in basque (Labourdin)

Second World WarEdit

What happened ? I understand Miquelon/St Pierre went with Vichy and were occupied by Canada. Streona (talk) 21:06, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

I think that is not quite accurate, from my understanding.--Filll (talk) 21:09, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

MergeEdit

Do we really need separate under-100-word articles on Miquelon Island and Langlade, two near-uninhabited parts of a larger island (which is, in turn, part of a really small overseas territory)? I would say no. Even the only settlement, Miquelon, Miquelon-Langlade has mere 615 residents, and could gracefully be merged here. The current setup is unnecessarily granular and just distracts the reader. No such user (talk) 14:42, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

I went ahead and merged everything in sight. No such user (talk) 14:56, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
