Sarajevo metropolitan areaSarajevo Metropolitan Region – I'm really not sure about this one, so this is up for discussion but I'm not supporting my suggested new name, yet. The literal translation obviously should be "region" not "area", from the native name Sarajevska Metropolitanska Regija. My gsearch etc leads me back to WP and mirrors, and in DE:WP we have it as "Großraum Sarajevo", literally "Greater Sarajevo" (cf. Greater London), PT:WP has essentially "Region", I have tried but can't find any RS to say what tbe larger area is called in English. The nearest I got was the Sarajevo Economic Region Development Agency. I'm sure others can at least find an WP:OFFICIALNAME, but I can't. 84.236.27.182 (talk) 21:50, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose 'metropolitan region' isn't really used in english and while technically correct sounds awkward blindlynx (talk) 09:18, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose You have capitalized the term "Metropolitan Region", making me imagine this is an official name for an entity. But I am having a hard time finding its official name in English (or Bosnian). I oppose for now, since it seems to be used informally, in which case "metropolitan area" (no caps) is more natural in English. Walrasiad (talk) 10:09, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
