Thomas Edward Lawrence moved here. But I am not sure this is the best lemma for this article, though this name is probably the most known form as his name. Personally I prefer to hold an person article under his real name, not a form as initial(s) + family name. But before taking an action, I would hear others their opinion. --Aphaia 09:40, 20 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Personally, I prefer "best known form of name", not "full name". Notice how we only use the middle name in articles like Sarah Michelle Gellar, where the middle name is part of the "best known" form, but we always indicate it (when known) in the intro. I think this is enough to indicate wikiquote's de-facto convention is "best known". ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 10:08, 20 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
