When I first set up the 53 counties of ND, I was finding many names duplicate names of counties in other states. To avoid confusion and duplicate work, I decided to name all 53 as Name County (North Dakota). I realized when I did this that some of the counties were not duplicated in other states and the ND parentheses were not necessary, but it was easier to stick to one naming convention as I wrote the various articles. By changing Oliver County (North Dakota) to Oliver County, this becomes an exception to the naming convention I am using, and will almost certainly lead to errors down the road. Unless there is really a good reason to go changing some of the names and leaving others unchanged, I would like to keep the (North Dakota) in all the county names. Do you see a problem with that?

According to the Wikitravel:Article naming conventions, Oliver County is prefered over Oliver County (North Dakota). I moved this article to Oliver County because of this convention. Should there be more than one Oliver County, this article can always be moved back to . -- Huttite 07:32, 11 Jun 2005 (EDT)
