Nomen alium[fontem recensere]

I seem to remember some discussion of Leodis already! Some people may imagine it's a Latin name for Leeds (hence we have a redirect from it); but is there published evidence it's a Latin name for Leeds? If there is, we'd best cite it. The more reliable the material we put in an infobox, the better. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:40, 27 Iunii 2007 (UTC)

[Copied from Disputatio Usoris:Andrew Dalby: ... I may have found a lead for Leodis. In the Leeds Grammar School school hymn (written in Latin), there are the words Leodenses Cuncti and towards the end it says schola Leodensis. There is also a very frequent Leeds word Leodiensian meaning an ex-pupil of L.G.S. or in general a person from Leeds. I am pretty sure these words do not come from Ledesia. --Harrissimo 12:31, 11 Iulii 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. This is good evidence and I have added it as a footnote. As soon as we come across Leodis itself used in a Latin context, we can reinstate the form in the first sentence or in the infobox. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:39, 11 Iulii 2007 (UTC)
