Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Template:{{given name}} is only for use on Wikipedia set index articles.

It is not for and should not be used on disambiguation pages! The template will not render output if transcluded on a page that ends with "(disambiguation)" and its title will sort in Category:Wikipedia page transclusions with strong class errors until corrected.

When disambiguation pages have lists of people by given name, among the ambiguous clarifications, on the page, therein made: set |1= to "given name" in the {{disambiguation}} template (for example, {{Disambiguation|given name}}). This will sort the disambiguation page in Category:Disambiguation pages with given-name-holder lists.

Usage

When a page is titled in the following form: "Name (given name)" where "Name" is any given name and "(given name)" is the parenthetical index identifier, use template "{{given name}}"; placed at the bottom of a page to identify it as a set index article and, without parameters, will render text in broad generalizations. For example, the introduction says: "this page or section" lists ...". For more specific text, use |page= or |section= to modify the template's output to say: "this page lists ..." or "this section lists ..." respectively.

By default, articles that include this template will be auto-categorized into Category:Given names. To override this functionality:

  • Use cat=name of category when the category should be changed to something else.
         Example: {{Given name|cat=Welsh given names}}
  • Use cat=none when no category should be included at all (e.g. when using as an example in discussion or template documentation).
         Example: {{Given name|cat=none}}

If it's just for a section, you can say so:

     Example: {{Given name|section=y}}

Multiple categories are also possible. To accomplish this, use cat1= for the first category, cat2= for the second, and so on.

     Example: {{Given name|cat1=Welsh given names|cat2=English given names}}

Pages that include both given names and family names may be tagged with type=both. This adjusts the displayed text accordingly, and obviates the need to include multiple templates.

     Example: {{Given name|type=both}}

However, category names must still be provided in full.

     Example: {{Given name|type=both|cat1=Welsh given names|cat2=Welsh surnames}}
