Confusing use of Kennedy name[edit]

This article refers to several Kennedys, so the references to Jackie Kennedy as 'Kennedy' is confusing. I've relabeled as Ms. Kennedy where I can catch the use. Pls help to catch more confusing contexts. --Kgwu24 (talk) 18:00, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Please see WP:HONOURIFICS. Titles are not supposed to be used in articles. Also the context is clear in the sentences involved and there is no confusion as to who is being talked about. Please see also my edit-summary in the first of my edits. Also please do not add any more honourifics before others comment here. Thank you. Dr. K. 18:45, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
edit conflict - Kgwu24, please see the last time this matter was discussed above, under: "Bouvier/Kennedy/Onassis/Jacqueline – which should we use?". The last name is being used for her; first name of husband or other Kennedy mentioned, such as Robert Kennedy, to be used as needed. Kierzek (talk) 18:48, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
OK, thanx. I didn't read the historical editorial context, so thought I was trying to help. Didn't mean to start an edit war. I'll revert all my changes.--Kgwu24 (talk) 20:09, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
How about if I add "Jackie" to the places where the last name are used? Somehow it doesn't sound right in this context where the Kennedy name is so standard and famous for the president. Similarly for Onassis. In many cases when the last name is previously used notably, we always seek rescue from the first name, such as Hilary, Jeb, RFK, etc.Kgwu24 (talk) 20:13, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
I fail to see the need for that. The editors who have cleaned up the issue have taken care to provide the right context for the sentences involved. For instance, In early 1963, Kennedy was again pregnant, leading her to curtail her official duties. Now, that sentence couldn't apply to her husband or brother in law.

Comments[edit]

This article is very neutral with reliable sources. I enjoyed the talk page about removing the information that did not have facts and sources to back it up. I enjoy the pictures as well.

Aided the administration?[edit]

"As First Lady, she aided her husband's administration with her presence in social events […]"

In what way is this Noteworthy, and how does it differentiate her from any other First Lady? Would it not have been extraordinary if she didn't?

"[…] and with her highly publicized restoration of the White House."

I know she had it redecorated; exactly what was it that needed restoring?

Agree with your first point - I'll take another look at that section. (Although the current First Lady does call the assumption into question.) As for the second, it was a major renovation/restoration of the whole house. Big news, much coverage, absolutely notable. Tvoz/talk 23:49, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
No, actually I didn't realize you were quoting from the intro section - this is a summary of the much more detailed explanation in the body of the article. Perhaps the first part could be expressed a bit more artfully, but these are things she was known for as First Lady - the emphasis on cultural events in the White House and the restoration. So I think both are appropriate for the intro. I will see how to improve the phrasing. Tvoz/talk 00:00, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
