This Cfd is for both Adam and Eve. It's about a proposal name change into respectively Adam (mythology) and Eve (mythology) (or mythological characters) to leave Adam and Eve free as disambiguation category. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 18:16, 3 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Crouch, Swale: By my reading, w:Adam and w:Eve refer to the individuals, whereas en:Adam (given name) and en:Eve (name) refer to the names, no? - Themightyquill (talk) 11:22, 4 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Yes it seems that they are both about the names of some kind, my point still stands about the need for disambiguation. Crouch, Swale (talk) 09:14, 6 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not sure this is necessary. Category:Old Testament figures is full of names like this. Category:Adam (given name) does the job of disambiguating quite well. If we do disambiguate, using Category:Adam (bible) or Category:Adam (biblical figure) might be less controversial than "mythological characters", though I realize it's a question of semantics. - Themightyquill (talk) 19:20, 2 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Themightyquill: Correct me if I am wrong, but in general, if a title has multiple uses, the title itself should be a dab, with each use having dab info in () in their category name. Only in cases where one use is clearly far and away the go-to for the name should we give that use priority of place (some cities are like this). In this case while the biblical figure may be the most common use of the name Adam, there are plenty of other common uses, so I am incined to agree on this one that it should follow the normal process. The same goes for Eve, and probably some of the other figures as well. Josh (talk) 19:19, 1 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Joshbaumgartner: Fair enough. Do you want to propose this for the other relevant sub-categories of Category:Old Testament figures here, or a separate CFD? - Themightyquill (talk) 07:21, 2 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Themightyquill: Yes, I think this should be precedential in that what we do for Adam & Eve we should apply consistently to other similar situations. Josh (talk) 20:34, 2 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I've added the CFD tag to a number of other relevant sub-categories. - Themightyquill (talk) 11:00, 3 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Moved to "x (Biblical figure). Dab pages coming soon. - Themightyquill (talk) 12:32, 30 December 2019 (UTC)[reply]
