So I was browsing old threads here on the forums and I found something that looks like it still has issues:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/my_page_is_screwed_up_and_merged_with_someone_elses_credit_p...

Now his original request is that he wants to be Bugs Moran (I) or really Bugs Moran with no roman numeral. Obviously that's not likely to happen since there's already this guy:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1392568/?ref_=fn_al_nm_3

George Moran (IV) aka Bugs Moran (I), and while his only credits are documentary footage, it's still technically older credits, giving him the name first.

And I assume that's essentially the same reason Emma Watson from the Harry Potter series is Emma Watson (II)
http://www.imdb.com/find?q=emma+watson&s=all

Because Emma Vansittart was born as Emma Kate Watson aka Emma Watson (I)

Anyway forgive my rambling that's more a logic check on my part as to why his initial request to be Bugs Moran (I) wouldn't go through.

The problem I'm more concerned with is the two pages linked from that thread:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3493788/
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5608735/

Instead of being Bugs Moran (I) and Bugs Moran (II); they've become Bugs Moran (II) and Bugs Moran (III) and now refer to the same person.

A look at the credits listings and you will see Deadly Karma credits both Bugs Moran (II) and Bugs Moran (III); almost like whoever entered it onto the filims page wasn't sure which name page to tag, entered both and it was allowed.

The personal details also confirm the alternate name of Kelly O'Moren on the page for Bugs Moran (II), which appears several times on the Bugs Moran (III) credits list as well.

So based on the information that's there Bugs Moran (II) and Bugs Moran (III) should be merged as one page:
Bugs Moran (II) born as Ryan Kelly Moran, alternate names: Kelly O'Moren
