What was the point of renaming this page from Anatole the Mouse to the awkward Anatole (mouse), and renaming Anatole the Chef to the ludicrous Anatole (Wodehouse)?

It is the normal means of disambiguation on Wikipedia: the proper name of Wodehouse's Anatole is Anatole, and nobody in Wodehouse's stories ever calls him Anatole the Chef. I don't know if the same applies to Anatole the mouse, but if he is in fact called "Anatole the Mouse", the article should probably be moved back to its former location. Incidentally, to whomever moved Anatole (formerly an article about the Wodehouse character) to Anatole the Chef in the first place: please know that copying and pasting an article's contents is NOT the proper way to rename a page. The process is called "moving" a page, and is a function only available to logged-in users: it's preferable because it moves the page's history to the new name, so that the history and the content of the page are not in different places. If you don't want to log in but would like a page moved, please see Wikipedia:Requested moves. Rdsmith4Dan | Talk 00:10, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Well, if I can find any of my son's Anatole (the mouse) books, I'll research the proper title of the mouse. Of course, if someone beats me to it... Atlant 00:43, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)
