According to the Chocolate Frog Cards page, his name is "Auroleus Phillipus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim"; should this page be renamed or that unsourced fact be removed? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 04:32, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

If the name is given on a canon Harry Potter-related site then it's a canon name. But I think the article overall-name should only be called "Auroleus von Hohenheim" as we go for using only first- and surnames in article-names.
Or is it "Phillipus von Hohenheim"? --DCLM (talk) 17:21, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Just checked the site. It appears to both have minor spelling-mistakes here and there, and to be American-based. Furthermore, I don't actually think it's run by canon sources. Also the piece with Paracelsus says: "A wizard depicted on a wizard trading card . His real name was Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim." No "Phillipus" or "Aureolus" was mentioned. If a real person is mentioned in Harry Potter-universe we usually go by the characters name inside the universe, no matter what his real name is. We also, as mentioned before, usually only go for first name and surname as main article-name. --DCLM (talk) 17:42, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Well, all I did was add the "Phillipus Auroleus" and that's only because this page says so; never having seen the Paracelsus card myself, I wasn't able to verify it. However, two trusted users use the site as canon, with 1337star changing the name of this article to "Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim" due to it. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 18:00, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
Just saying what my experience is. But I can say this; other articles cannot be used to canonicate some articles, having argued about this before myself. --DCLM (talk) 18:44, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
You raise valid points; thanks for the help. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 18:49, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
