@Sappho Norge: Sorry but the request is not clear. Do you want to be renamed to "John Peder Larsen"? There is also another request for renaming to JPL below. --Superpes15 (talk) 14:10, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

@IX V MM: Please provide a reason for rename. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:41, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
I took this name without thinking about it at the time. You can remember the new name more easily, because it is an ordinary Dutch word. Personally, I also like this name better. Kind regards, IX V MM (talk) 09:34, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

  Comment @EditeY: "God tengri" does not exist; are you sure this is the username you want to rename to (note that "_" is interpreted as a space)? If that's the case, you may want to put it under the Simple renames section. Leaderboard (talk) 17:20, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

@Uncitoyen: Can you please confirm if the username is appropriate? I have seen this page so I cannot give an outcome --Superpes15 (talk) 23:21, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

On Turkish Wikipedia, it isn't appropriate to use the names of religious persons and names such as God, Jehovah, Buddha and Allah that these names would be an attack for other people's beliefs. Also I think that usernames that generally only use god names (example:User:Allah, User:God; but such usernames don't exist.) aren't appropriate, according to our local username policy. Tengri means God in old Turkic (especially for Shamanism etc.). There is no attack directly here, but only using two god names together may cause trouble for other users. There is only one example what I can remember. tr:Special:Contributions/Tanrı Generally, as Turkish Wikipedia administrators, we don't block usernames that contain God, Allah etc. especially if they don't attack for other people's religious beliefs. @Vito Genovese:: Doesn't have many examples of such situations that I remember, could you help us? --Uncitoyentalk 05:22, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Uncitoyen: I recall two further examples. The first one was Tanrilarinfisiltisi 'Whisper of the Gods', which was discussed here. Everyone agreed that it was fine. The second example was "Poseidonakafaatansatir" 'The cleaver that headbutted Poseidon', discussed here. I argued that the ancient Greek religion is still being actively followed by some and it has some official recognition as a minority religion, it could be considered offensive to some, albeit unlikely. Dr. Coal, a fellow admin, did not agree and argued that we should not be too restrictive, so we left it there. In other words, no blocks for either of the two accounts.
As for this particular example, I would similarly argue that there are some people who worship Tengri, which would not have been offensive to me if I were an adherent of this religion but could be so for those who are. But others might disagree with me on this.
Vito Genovese 09:23, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. Yes, usually, such names aren't blocked that they aren't offensive. I have been wondering if this username might be an attack to those who believe in Tengri as said above, but I'm not already sure that username is inapporiate. --Uncitoyentalk 09:53, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
@EditeY: Given the comments above, I think this username will be inappropriate for people who believe in God Tengri, so marking this   Not done. If you still wanted to be renamed, please choose another name and file a new request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:47, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
