Canonical name

According to both the Grove Dictionary and the "Quellen-Lexikon", the preferred form is "Michel-Richard de Lalande". Anyone against renaming the page to this form? —Carlos Email.gif 23:27, 3 August 2011 (CDT)

I agree, Carlos. I've always known this composer as "Lalande"   Chucktalk Giffen 00:06, 4 August 2011 (CDT)
I've no objections - "Michel-Richard de Lalande" seems to be a better-established title. Cydonia 15:03, 4 August 2011 (CDT)
Thank you both for your feedback, I'll proceed with the renaming then. —Carlos Email.gif 22:43, 7 August 2011 (CDT)
Sure: this can be handled with redirects, but for the record Baker's Dictionary, Anthony's French Baroque Music, Grout's Western Music and a local record store use the form I've always known. IMSLP uses Lalande, WP and Google favor Delalande, and the Berkeley University Music Library has slightly more titles using Delalande, catalogued under the Library of Congress standard entry "Lalande". Gallica should be decisive, and uses Lalande, but the volumes are bound as "Delalande". So let's have no more talk of 'established' forms please! ;-) Richard Mix 00:40, 8 August 2011 (CDT)
