De nomine[fontem recensere]

Mihi videtur hoc nomen usque adhuc nullo Vicipaediano interfuit! Historici, nisi fallor, locum ab Omanis (2. decl. pl.) antiquis differre censent, sed nomen idem esse, propter migrationem populi translatum. Fontem "Omaniae" non reperio. Ergo movere volo ad "Omana (civitas)". An quis disputare velit? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:05, 23 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Fonte citato, movere non iam necesse est. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:57, 24 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
An anonymous editor concealed a remark in English in the page. I copy it here: "the adjective oman[i]ensis could come from Oman (indeclinable), Omanus, Omana or Omanum, thus the adjective does not attest any substantive; and Oman Omana and Omanum (accusative) can be found in New Latin texts and might mean Oman in English." That is true, but, as I said above in Latin, we already had a citation for "Omania": I have now slightly rearranged the footnotes to make the fact clearer. Citations for "Oman Omana and Omanum" would still be welcome: given such citations, anyone could propose moving the page. The use of English is fine on talk pages :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:41, 7 Februarii 2017 (UTC)
