Personally, I don't see why you don't want to just use Wikipedia (for all info), Wiktionary (for etymology/meaning, which can also be on WP), and Wikidata/OmegaWiki (for storing facts/other things about names). PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:45, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
Obviously, WT handles special names, including etymology, language, and pronounciation. It also has links to Wikipedia for people with that name; see Hereward and Wikt has a link to Hereward the Wake. No need for a new project.--Seonookim (talk) 05:49, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Its a collectionEdit
For the average non-wikimedian savvy user, having the data about the name spread over 3 websites can be daunting, I've been on various wikimedia projects for around 6 months now and I still lose my way trying to find information. This project is designed to collate the information into one area so if you need to find out about a name, you don't got to Wikipedia for one thing, Wikitionary for another, no. If you want to find out about names, you go to Wikinames. Oh and about the other Wikiname, I had no idea it existed :/. Sorry, this idea came up in a discussion between me and eptalon on #wikipedia-simple on freenode.
A word of advice: Do not call it WikiGenealogy, and take it out of the other names section. It will create far too much confusion with the proposed adoption of WeRelate. Nick1372 (talk) 18:46, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
