Oppose By default all categories are by name, so the "by name" suffix is even more redundant than the "by alphabet" suffix. "Ship list" or "Ship names" would be less redundant and confusing. --Foroa (talk) 07:47, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
By default all categories are "by alphabet". Generally, categories which are sorted directly by name (without internal structuralization) are named "by name" (Rivers by name, Streets by name...). Only several categories deviate from this standard and should be unified to prevalent standard. The suffix "by alphabet" is suitably used in cases of Category:Inscriptions by alphabet and Category:Letters by alphabet. Single sorting by name shouldn't be confussed with categorization by used alphabet.
"Ship list" is confusing: "list" is generally named the page with a text list, not a dynamic filled category.
"Ship names" is confusing: the category contain media files of ships sorted by ship name, not only ship names. --ŠJů (talk) 07:40, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Again, by default all category end nodes are by name, they are sorted by default by alphabet. There is no such prevailing standard "by name" as it is redundant with the default meaning of a basic category. We definitively have to find a proper way of indicating such "list" nodes, but "by name" is the worst solution to me. --Foroa (talk) 07:51, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
