Hello everyone !

(I will send this to iris-talk as well, so the debate can go on there, instead
of on iris-photo.)

I'm sorry if i have sounded a bit obsessionnal to some of you, but i wanted to push the logic to the limit, hoping to show this way that there might be a
problem somewhere!

To the astonishment of many, we finally came up with an amazing conclusion : MEANING has nothing to do with the criteria used for naming an iris !...

I am not sure why you find it so astonishing. The ICNCP says nothing about sound.

Mike Lowe has decided that Eleanor d'Aquitaine and Eleanor of Aquitaine were
different enough to be both registered.

That is not correct the two irises are:

Eleanor of Aquitaine

Which are obviously different names. I believe that the guidelines say that non-English names should be transliterated not translated.

Therefore, among all the people abroad who don't speak English ( they are around 6 billon there...), the ones who want to register an iris will know the proper procedure for doing so without wasting everybody's time with unproper

Seems that it has not been that much more a problem for non-English speakers than English speakers.
