Apud Carolum Egger in Lexicone Nominum Locorum Anglesey est Mona, -ae (Cf. Tac. Agric 15 et 18; Caes. B.G. 5, 13; Ravennatis anonymi cosmographia); Man est Monapia, -ae (memoratur a Plin.

Proposition[fontem recensere]

Is it possible for us to have this page as a redirect to Britanniarum Regnum and move Britannia as it stands to Britannia Magna? Harrissimo 13:19, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC).

Britannia ("island of (Great) Britain") is not the same as Britanniarum Regnum ("UK"), so I think it would be wrong to make one a simple redirect to the other. If it's decided make the move that you suggest, the next logical step, maybe, would be to move Britannia (discretiva) to Britannia.
So why do you propose making that move? Is it certain that Britannia Magna is the usual name for the island in Latin? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:15, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
I suggest this not only because of typing time being saved but because latin geography changes with the times. Magna Britannia (or Britannia Magna or B. Maior) has been used by the book of that title, Egger, Mapmakers and (I should imagine) Romans. The problem I have with the link from Britannia to here is its bluntness in showing that it is the island not the nation which covers that land (which most people would be looking for anyway). Your suggested moving of the discretiva to here sounds much more reasonable (making sure it is clear-cut like this rather than the way some of our discretivas go).

In this case it makes a lot of sense to make the Britanniarum Regnum the main page, link to the discretiva at the top, and then refer the rest of the Britannias from the discretiva.--Rafaelgarcia 17:34, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
