Lindig | 167 comments So, most of us know that "Lord Byron" is a title attached to a guy named "George Gordon," right? When I look him up, though, his profile lists him as "George Gordon Byron," as though Byron is his last name. The first line of the info has "(aka Lord Byron)" right after the name.

Should I correct his name field to read

George Gordon, Lord Byron

and fix the bio?

It's not quite the same as the Lord Dunsany problem because his name is not widely known or used.

LoC's primary listing for him is George Gordon Byron.
