I can't find Croindone on the page cited. Have I missed something? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:45, 13 Octobris 2007 (UTC)[reply]

It gives a 11th c. name: Croindoine, although which language this is (Middle English? Franconorman? Latin?) cannot be told from the link.--Xaverius 20:50, 12 Februarii 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm, well, thanks for looking, Javi. Actually it's "Croindeine"; so, anyway, we still don't know where the pagename really comes from. And, as you quite rightly add, there's nothing to say that "Croindeine" is Latin. Ah well. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:07, 12 Februarii 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Moveamus?--Xaverius 21:15, 12 Februarii 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Ita. Movi. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:42, 13 Februarii 2012 (UTC)[reply]
There are plenty of references to "Croydonia(e)", including in a school motto "Floreat Cryondonia" (see Google Books) --JimKillock (disputatio) 20:07, 25 Augusti 2021 (UTC)[reply]
So why not move it? I'll move it now. Thanks for the reference. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:05, 31 Decembris 2021 (UTC)[reply]
