Parisian vs. French Brotherhood

The Essential Guide refrains entirely from using "French Brotherhood", instead referring to this branch as "Parisian Brotherhood" at all times even while simultaneously listing the other guilds by the nationality (e.g. "Egyptian Brotherhood", "Chinese Brotherhood", "Indian Brotherhood", "British Brotherhood", "Italian Brotherhood", etc.) As such, it seems like a conscious decision to me to favor "Parisian Brotherhood" over "French Brotherhood", whatever the reason behind it may be, as it should have stood out to the authors of the book given that the context the name is given parallels all the other branch names. Someone added "French Brotherhood" just a little bit earlier, and I must confess that I thought it was just speculative, given that he also changed Japanese Assassins and Mongolian Assassins to the unconfirmed "Japanese Brotherhood" and "Mongolian Brotherhood" (which I nonetheless am fine with for the sake of consistency b/c the former names are conjectural themselves anyways). However, after a quick search, I have found one instance of "French Brotherhood" being used: over at Thomas de Carneillon's database entry. Since this does confirm that French Brotherhood can be used for the guild, we might want to move this to French Brotherhood instead. It is odd for it to be named Parisian Brotherhood when it seems to cover the entire country. Nevertheless, one case of "French Brotherhood" in one database entry is not as credible as consistent usage throughout a reference book which also provides the sources for all the other branch names. So what are your thoughts? Sol Pacificus(Cyfiero) 09:29, February 15, 2017 (UTC)

I think it's best to stick to the most commonly used official name provided, which in this case is the "Parisian Brotherhood". A single instance is worth noting, but not quite as official as multiple references in an official guidebook. The Wikia Editor (talk) 15:59, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
Exactly my thoughts. ^^ Sol Pacificus(Cyfiero) 19:18, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
