I suggest the honorific "St." be removed from the name, as is in the Wikipedia article on him. Honorifics such as "Father", "Pope", "Abbé" etc. have consistently been removed from composer names at CPDL; I don't think it should be different with saints. —Carlos Email.gif 17:26, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Agree. --Vaarky 19:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree, but then what about King of Portugal John IV? -- Chucktalk Giffen 19:32, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
I believe this could be changed too, renamed to "John IV of Portugal" as in the Wikipedia article, "João IV of Portugal" or simply "João IV". There are other composer-kings at CPDL, as Alfonso el Sabio, without the honorific. —Carlos Email.gif 22:42, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
And Henry VIII, infamous king of England. Sounds as if we should go ahead and remove the honorifics. I removed an "Archpriest" honorific yesterday. -- Chucktalk Giffen 10:39, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
I've changed St. Francis of Assisi to Francis of Assisi. -- Chucktalk Giffen 11:05, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
