Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Sorting Sith names

Sith names are currently listed in categories by the second part of their titles, such as Nihilus and Sion, using the "last name, 1st name" format. This is so they don't fill up the "D" sections. As this technically doesn't apply to Sith titles, I think it might be better just to list the second part of the title. So instead of "Sion, Darth" it would just be "Sion".--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 23:05, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

  • This goes back to the "Is Darth part of the name?" question. It may be that Darth is a name taken by Sith as part of their initiation, or it may simply be a title bestowed to them. I tend to think of it as a name, although not as a "first" name. It's more like a "last" name, or family name. The Sith just write it backwards. That's purely speculation on my part, however. From a pure canon viewpoint, I don't know the answer. Maclimes Zero (talk) Infinite Empire 23:11, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
    • I think Darth is more than just a title; it becomes part of their Sith name. I think we should still use it - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 08:52, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
    • I think, whether we decide on the other thread to include "Darth" in the page title or not, only the personal name should be used for sorting (i.e. "Darth Blablabla" is sorted in categories as "Blablabla".) —Silly Dan (talk) 12:58, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

I think that it would be better to include "Darth" in the categories so people know that the person referred to is a Sith. (feel free to edit my post for grammar, ect.)

      • Whether it is included in the sort key or not wouldn't change it. For example, let's say I am working with Darth Vader. If I use [[Category:Sith]] (no sort key), it will be listed in the category as "Darth Vader", under "D". If I use [[Category:Sith|Vader, Darth]], then it will be listed in the category as "Darth Vader", under "V". If I use [[Category:Sith|Vader]], then it will still be listed in the category as "Darth Vader", under "V". It does not matter what you put in the sort key, it will always be listed as "Darth Vader", establishing that it is a sith, the only thing that will change is where in the alphabet it is listed. --OuroborosCobra 08:38, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
