Name

According to this, Joseph's full name is Joseph Al Amir. Should we move this page there/add a note? I don't know how NBC/Heroes has presented Joseph, or whether they've actually said what his full name is, but it's an interesting note. -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 08:39, 17 July 2008 (EDT)

  • They get the name probably from IMBD too. Chrisyu357 08:41, 17 July 2008 (EDT)
  • We'd leave it at Joseph unless/until there's a more authoritative source that gives us his last name. (Admin 08:44, 17 July 2008 (EDT))
    • I wouldn't mind a change. We've used less information to make name clarifications. It would be nice to have Joseph redirect to right to Joseph (disambig). I'm not too concerned one way or another, though. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:15, 17 July 2008 (EDT)
      • Sorry mr. admin but i dont believe a more authoritative source is gonna give us the name of a character that is not even in the show. I say we throw in the last name cause its more descriptive and it really doesn't matter because his name isnt even in the show.--Pbmarcano 15:18, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
        • Then it remains Joseph. Unless we've gotten some other official source for his name, nothing has changed between July and now. (Admin 16:15, 1 October 2008 (EDT))
    • I agree with renaming to Joseph Al Amir. And regardless of the final decision, I recommend adding a note entry with the last name and its source.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:09, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
      • Yeah, I don't see any reason not to. Nothing else is going to come along, I'm sure. I know N'Tare Mwine's agent/publicist is very good about updating his information on IMDb, so I would assume that name came from a source close to the actor. Also, it'll be nicer to have Joseph redirect to Joseph (disambig). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:17, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
        • Am I missing something? Do we have an official source saying this was his character's last name or just a fan site and IMDB? IMDB is not a reliable source. If someone wants to email N'Tare or his agent and get an actual confirmation, then ok... but otherwise it's not reliable info. (Admin 16:19, 1 October 2008 (EDT))
          • I'll pass on a message to him, then. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:21, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
            • Thanks! :) (Admin 16:23, 1 October 2008 (EDT))
              • We're working on an interview... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:58, 15 October 2008 (EDT)
                • I just about have one with him, I am just waiting until Usutu is killed or written out or the season is over, whatever happens first!--Skywalkerrbf 18:03, 15 October 2008 (EDT)
              • In my interview, I asked Ntare if Joseph had a last name. He said, "No, not that I recall." I'm editing that bit out of the interview (the question kind of came from nowhere), but I'm recording it here for posterity. No, the page doesn't need to be renamed, then. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:35, 26 October 2008 (EDT)
