GCD Official Name
To determine what creator name should be used as the GCD Official Name, the following was adopted by vote of December 1, 2012:
- If the person is recorded in the current Who's Who, use that name.
- If the person is not recorded in the current Who's Who, but is recorded at Lambiek, use that name.
- If the person is not recorded in either the current Who's Who or at Lambiek, but has a listing in Wikipedia, use the main listing name that corresponds to the language in which the creator's works are most often published, as it appears there.
- If the person is not recorded in any of the above-mentioned sources, further rules shall be determined.
