Talk:Battle of the Field of Celebrant

[edit] Article Upgrade

Time to turn my war expertise to this article. Giving the war a name would be a good start, and then filling in some blanks. Unsigned comment by Theoden1 (talk • contribs).

I'm not really happy with the name you chose now. Maybe "The Invasions of the Balchoth and the Easterlings"? I'm not really fond of using /'s in titles. Spelled out it looks prettier. -- Ederchil 12:56, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
I usually wouldn't either. The problem is that the primary source, Appendix A, uses 'Wainriders' in most occurences, but 'Balchoth' is used later. Easterlings is used more in the main text of LOTR, particularly ROTK. Even though it looks inelegant, at least it is accurate.--Theoden1 14:34, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
I think Balchoth would definately be the most recognized of the three, but I agree; actually coming up with a name that covers everything is difficult. -- Ederchil 14:48, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
