Kyiv is the state official name of the city. Kyiv is the srong name in the English language. Kyiv is the only Ukrainian capital. Kiev is the only Russian name, not English. --Golota (talk) 13:50, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

The city has conventional name in English. It's Kiev. I don't see reason for discussion.--Ahonc (talk) 14:01, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Kyiv has conventional name in English. Kyiv is the strong official name.--Golota (talk) 14:05, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Kyiv is native name, Kiev is conventional name. If city has conventional name we use it. If city doesn't have it, we use native name.--Ahonc (talk) 14:15, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. I see old reason for this discussion. Kharkiv is only conventional name, Odesa is conventional name, Kiev is also conventional traditional name. --Spirit of Crow (talk) 16:39, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
  • What does "support" mean here? No specific proposal has been made. I'd be inclined to Keep it at Kiev, far and away the most common name among English speakers. - Jmabel ! talk 00:45, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep at Kiev. Commons policy. Samulili (talk) 08:21, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep at Kiev. The Ukrainian spelling isn't Kyiv but Київ (Kiyiv in English). In almost all languages (no only in Russian) is the last vocal transcribed as "e" ("ye", "je") or "yo" ("jo"). --ŠJů (talk) 13:36, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep at Kiev. --Vizu (talk) 13:51, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep at Kiev. If you try to find those names of Kiev/Kyiv by GOOGLE-search you will get the following: Kiev is around 75 millions results, Kyiv is around 8 millions. I guess it's an important reason don't make renaming. --Assedo (talk) 11:58, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep as Kiev. It is conventional name.--Ahonc (talk) 13:00, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep as Kiev, as least as long as we have a Category:Moscow (and not Moskva). Fransvannes (talk) 19:50, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
