I added a "Hitler" tag to my diary, but it's redirecting to a misspelled tag: "Adolph Hitler"


Please fix that tag. Thank you.

    ?? "Adolph Hitler" is spelled correctly. I do see that there is no tag for "Hitler" without the first name and that's correct tag protocol (full name).

    I've always seen it spelled "Adolf." Here's wikipedia's discussion of the misspelling:
    "in German Adolf is used, Adolph is never used. in English today Adolf is used, even though in the very beginning, before Hitler became Nazi Germany's dictator, the New York Times or whoever spelled it Adolph, but later Adolf." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AAdolf_Hitler/mentioning_the_(m...

    Oooh, good find! I've always been under the impression that "Adolph" is the English/ American spelling but have occasionally seen the "Adolpf" spelling in articles that were influenced by or originated in Europe.
    I'm a fiend about correct spelling but proper names with Anglo/European variations are a whole 'nuther ballgame. Compliments on caring about getting it right. However...
    if I were you, I wouldn't spend any more time on it when there's so much else you could be doing!
    Have a great weekend (what's left of it)!
