--Leon 18:02, 15 June 2009 (EDT): Is it Valkyre or Valkrye? Or Valkyrie?

--Dwayne 10:20, 15 June 2009 (EDT): There seem to be a variety of spellings about, with the -ie being the most widely accepted. Inasmuch as the character is German by birth, and would consider the natural spelling to be "Walk├╝re" she seems to have gone with the simplest anglicization, leaving out the extraneous "i".

--Leon 23:38, 15 June 2009 (EDT): All very fascinating to etymologists or the like. But I was just trying to pin down which of the two you used was correct.

--Dwayne 00:01, 16 June 2009 (EDT): Okay, I've corrected that alternative spelling, also known as a "typo" on the Sybil page.

--Leon 06:16, 16 June 2009 (EDT): Awesome! But could you please correct the alternative on Valk...'s page too, so I know which one to use on the main page? Compare the infobox with the title. I wasn't trying to score points, I was asking a simple question. Which one's correct? With no sarcasm intended or implied, I'm just confused and want to know the final, official spelling of the character's name.

--Dwayne 06:10, 16 June 2009 (EDT): Corrected same transposition typo in the infobox, but since that makes my original success ratio 50:50, I guess I understand your confusion.

--Leon 11:16, 16 June 2009 (EDT): Thanks! Now I see what's going on. But ... [no, I'm not smirking] ... did ya notice the picture's filename has that damned typo, too? [No, really! I'm totally straight-faced. This twitching is because of allergies.]

Seriously, though, I doubt anyone will even notice that. And ... I think I can correct it in the database and uploaded filename.

--Dwayne 11:51, 16 June 2009 (EDT): I did not. Please do.

--Leon 17:17, 16 June 2009 (EDT): You're no fun.
