    My comments about the previous version apply to this version as well.

  2. Robert Bratton says:

    And one fine hair I hesitate to split is the use of “name” and “variant name” in the proposal and the existing instruction. Are things like “Author of An introduction to arithmetic” or “Friend of every body and every soul” or “Enemy to unfaithfulness and deceit, and a lover of justice, and all that sincerely aim at it” really *names*? Or are they designations under which a creator operates in a certain context?

    From RDA 8.1.3:

    “The term name refers to a word, character, or group of words and/or characters by which a person, family, or corporate body is known.”

    From Adam Schiff, PCC member:

    I found two good examples in the LC/NAF that could be added to 10.11.2.1 to illustrate using a preferred family name with a variant addition:

    Romanov (Royal house : 1613-1917)
    Form recorded as authorized access point: Romanov (Dynasty : 1613-1917)

    Kamehameha (Dynasty : 1810-1872 : Hawaii)
    Form recorded as authorized access point: Kamehameha (Royal house : 1810-1872 : Hawaii)
