Move to Category:Christian Orthodox weddings[edit]

This comment is, of course, a mistruth ;). The two parents of this category are Christian weddings and Orthodox liturgy (the latter deriving in turn from Christian denominations; as everyone here knows an "Orthodox wedding" can be an Orthodox Jewish wedding)... - Why continue saying things which are a patent untruth?

Symbol support vote.svg Support some of the other categories need renaming as well. "Eastern Orthodoxy" and "Orthodox churches" are probably clear enough, but "Orthodox liturgy", "Orthodox rites", "Orthodox cemeteries"? Rd232 (talk) 13:40, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Everywhere that there is genuine ambiguity, we should say "Christian Orthodox", (or, where relevant, "Oriental Orthodox" to distinguish from "Eastern Orthodox"), because just "Orthodox" can as easily mean Jewish. - Jmabel ! talk 15:59, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
Note that I opposed basically because there should be a general naming rule for all associated categories, there should be a consensus about the yet-another-name name as "Christian Orthodox" doesn't seem to solve the problem and all related categories should be renamed accordingly in one go. --Foroa (talk) 16:54, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
As per Jmabel, the term "orthodox" is clearly ambiguous, the more as Christian orthodox and Jewish orthodox topics do really overlap. So, a plain cat:Orthodox something, when it refers to either Christian or Jewish orthodoxy, is not acceptable IMO. As per Foroa, if this problem concerns many cats, then a rfc/discussion might be wise. However, this rfc/discussion shouldn't aim too broad, as such this discussions on Commons often end nowhere. --Túrelio (talk) 08:09, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Lets be as precise as possible and not invent ambiguous names. I moved it all to Category:Eastern Orthodox weddings as this was the case: Christian Orthodox has to many meanings, including calvinists, anglican ... There is no such Chirstian Orthodix main category anyway, en:Christian_Orthodox is a disambiguation. --Foroa (talk) 12:08, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
