University of Munich[change]

I am planning on creating the University of Munich page, but I think that the article should be located at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, which is its full name, and we can have a redirect at University of Munich. If this is OK, can somebody change the most wanted changes to reflect the name change, or should it wait until I create the article and the redirect? Thesixthstaff (talk) 21:25, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I think not. We should have the simplest and most commonly used title for our pages. There are many examples where a formal title is far too long for general use. The reasoning is similar to that for personal names: the title should be long enough to avoid ambiguity, but not more. Of course, the official full title or names should be given in the intro. We should actively seek ways to make our text simpler, and easier to read. There are many examples on our zoology pages where we have preferred a well-known common name to a longer and not so well known latin binomial. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:18, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
