Link's Grandmother

Shouldn't the title of the Article changed into Link's Grandmother? --Cococrash11 17:45, 7 September 2012 (EDT)

"Link's Grandmother" is not a name used in the game, but in the Nintendo Gallery she's named "Link's Grandma." I'd be all for renaming it to that. Or maybe even just "Grandma", which is sometimes capitalized in the game, making it more like a proper noun that a common one like "grandmother." — Hylian King [*] 17:58, 7 September 2012 (EDT)

If Grandmother was not used in the game they why is the title article called Grandmother? It should changed into Link's Grandmother instead of just Grandmother. --Cococrash11 21:16, 12 September 2012 (EDT)

"Grandmother" is used in the game. However, it isn't capitalized, unlike "Grandma", which is why I'm suggesting it be moved to Grandma; proper nouns make for better titles than common nouns. Again, another option would be "Link's Grandma", which is also a term used in the game. "Link's Grandmother" is not a term used at any point in the game, why is why I'd rather we not rename the page to that. — Hylian King [*] 06:48, 13 September 2012 (EDT)

So what about Link's Father, Mother, and Uncle are you saying they do? --Cococrash11 21:05, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

No, those are conjectural (unofficial) titles, but we only use them because those characters don't have official names to begin with. We don't have to settle for a conjectural title here (i.e. "Link's Grandmother") because we have official ones ("Grandma" and "Link's Grandma"). — Hylian King [*] 16:33, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

One more thing are there any news that it's called Link's Grandmother in recent news or by the creator by any chance? --Cococrash11 23:57, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

Not that I am aware of. Even then, I don't think there is any case on the wiki where such information takes precedence over the titles stated in-game. — Hylian King [*] 08:39, 22 September 2012 (EDT)
