I have just added two people to the IMDb database of names that don't fit under the IMDb name convention, both people who have a roman numeral at the end of their name to signify previous generations of people in that family's paternal lineage with the same name. When I submitted the names as they appear in the credits, the "III" to signify the person's paternal grandfather has the same given name is automatically changed by IMDb to "Iii" which is incorrect. The specifics of the two people:
  • Mrs. Arthur H. Noble Iii (nm9656696) should be corrected to Mrs. Arthur H. Noble III
  • Roger Blackwell Iii (nm9656733) should be corrected to Roger Blackwell III

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to find the best way to add names that fit the convention listed in the subject line.
In usual circumstances, John Doe the Fourth, for example, is usually spelled John Doe IV.

If the person is credited as John Doe IV, should I:
•add the name as "Doe Iv, John"?
•add the name as "Doe Iv, John" with the attribute (as John Doe IV)?
•add the name "Doe the Fourth, John" with the attribute (as John Doe IV)?
•something else?

Hi Gene -

I'm just confirming here that the names you reported have now been adjusted with the correct capitalization, see:

Mrs. Arthur H. Noble III
Roger Blackwell III

Cheers!
