Ruvé Darhk?

After watching all of the episodes with her in/mentioned, it seems pretty overwhelming that Ruvé Adams isn't her real name.

I understand how when the series was live, she was referred to as Ruvé Adams a lot, with her name on the election posters etc., so lots of readers would search for her by that name. And in April 2016, MakeShift reverted some edits saying:

Her name is not really clear, it's as if they call her "Ruvé Darhk" (and she's credited as such) due to her close association with Damien.

That was completely true at the time, but by the end of her time on the show, all of the evidence was pointing to the fact that this wasn't her real name, and she was actually called Ruvé Darhk (check out this blog for more detailed info). In more recent seasons, her surname is only ever given as Darhk (e.g. So It Begins), which means more recent viewers would try to look her up by that name too.

So, now that she's long since gone, it seems like it would be a good idea to move the article to Ruvé Darhk, with a redirect from Ruvé Adams. To be clear, we could add a note at the start of the article that that was what she called herself during the election, as well as a summary about this in a Trivia section. What do you think? --xensyriaT 13:10, February 22, 2018 (UTC) updated: 18:37, April 6, 2018 (UTC)

I don't really agree. AFAIK, Adams was the name she used legally and was most well-known within the universe. Her association with Darhk was pretty hush-hush most of the time. I think her "official" name should stay, but I'd ask more admins for consensus if I were you. It's a borderline case, like with Nyssa al Ghul, with different ideas on what the character's "true name" actually is.--Kir the Wizard (talk) 19:41, April 6, 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Kir, will ask around to find the current consensus! --xensyriaT 20:24, April 6, 2018 (UTC)
