I have found the following variations in the filming locations listings. I would like to correct them so they are all the same, but would like input on what the best version is:

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, France

Cathédrale Notre-Dame, Paris, France

Notre-Dame de Paris, Paris, France

Nôtre-Dame, Paris, France

Notre Dame, Paris 1, Paris, France

Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris, Paris 4, Paris, France

Cathedral de Notre Dame, Île de la Cité, Paris 4, Paris, France

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Ile de la Cité, Paris 4, Paris, France

Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris 6, Place du Parvis, Paris 4, Paris, France

Notre Dame de Paris, 6 Parvis Notre-Dame, Place Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris, France

Eglise de Notre Dame, Paris 4, Paris, France

Cathedral Close, Notre Dame Cathedral, Île de las Cité, Paris 4, Paris, France

I'd prefer to include "Paris 4" as these names for arrondissements seem to be common in the existing locations for Paris.

Hi,

I do not know how other major cathedrals as Saint-Paul in London or Saint-Patrick in NY are processed in IMDb (too difficult to retrieve), but, as a Parisian, I advise to drop any useless reference to the "arrondissement"/district (4), or "île de la cité".
I would favor "Cathédrale Notre-Dame, Paris, France"

Hi Peter -

When listing Filming Locations we prefer the simple version verses elaborate, detailed locations.  So for the "Notre Dame" we would prefer a simple and widely recognizable listing such as:

"Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, France"

Should Giza, Giza Plateau and Giza, Egypt be corrected to just Giza, Egypt?

But in English language, even when the ”official” name is in French?

The complete name in french is "Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris" 

I don't know if that is helping.

Scrolling down the page,
though, they use a few different English names, but mostly:

Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral
