Barry Allen/Hal Jordan Page Name

I think it is best that we have a vote on what we should call the Barry Allen page name.

I personally think just Barry Allen will suffice as I've never known him to be called Bartholomew at all. And Barry can be a name from birth. I know people will bring up the same case with Harold/Hal Jordan's page as well. I think Harold Jordan and Barry Allen personally. But I will let a vote decide.

Barry Allen / Hal Jordan [] Bartholomew Allen / Harold Jordan [] Bartholomew Allen / Hal Jordan []

Everybody vote please so there isn't a gazillion name changes going off every other month. Thanks.

Barry Allen / Hal Jordan. There's no need to have the characters' "birth" names on every page at all. For example if they decide to introduce Wally West and John Stewart in future films, I don't think the pages need to be Wallace West and Jonathan Stewart. There's no need for that in my opinion. Also, for all we know Aquaman might not even be called Orin here. In the current comics Arthur Curry is his birth name given to him by both his human father and his Atlantean mother. He has no Atlantean name in the New 52, that this movie universe seems to be more or less based on. But I digreess, Hal and Barry would be fine.

John Stewart was born John not Jonathan.

Okay, but either way in my opinion stuff like Bartholomew Allen, Harold Jordan or Mercedes Graves is completely unnecessary. It's the only thing about this wiki that I'm not a fan of.

On these 2 names I'm pretty easy going on these ones. Hal and Barry would do for me. I'll let the populous decide on this one

New here, but... what's wrong with just calling it The Flash?

Policy on this site is to name the pages after the characters birth name, as that is who they are. The Flash is just a moniker/codename used by the character.

That I don't get either.

"This is your mask, your real face is the one criminals now fear." - Batman Begins

I know that movie's not canon to the universe, but The Flash's movie is most likely going to be called "The Flash" for a reason. For Bats, Bruce Wayne is the mask and isn't who he is, he's just Batman pretending to be Bruce Wayne. Idk, it's actually something that bothered me when I was little. So, if it's policy, okay then.

What's their birth certificate going to say? Bruce Wayne. Harold Jordan. etc.

For the most part, I think it's a little too formal to refer to them by their full names or birth name, especially in the case of those with unconventional names, like Superman, who has two names (Human and Kryptonian) but was only raised as Clark Kent. In the case of Wonder Woman, simply calling her Diana is strange since she goes by Diana Prince in modern times, and Aquaman, so far, has never even been referred to as Orin in the DCEU.
