Capitalization of name

Shouldn't "elder" be capitalized since it's part of her name? I would understand if this page was for the role of elder within Arroyo, but this is a person. Vader0629 (talk) 17:47, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Not sure it's a proper noun in need of capitalization; her parents obviously didn't name her "Arroyo Elder", but given that "elder" is capitalized throughout the article, I can see a case for capitalizing the title as well. The lead section should also be altered to "The Arroyo Elder..." since, like before, it's not her actual name. --Kastera (talk) 01:42, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
'Elder,' as a stand-alone generic descriptor, would not constitute proper noun-usage; that being said, in the case of, let's say, 'Elder Lyons,' then, yes, the proper noun-usage would be necessary. In this specific case, where 'elder' is only used as a generic descriptor, it should remain 'Arroyo elder,' similar to how we would write 'United States president' instead of the other way around.

But 'elder' isn't used as a generic descriptor in this case; it's this person's only given name. Perhaps it would be best to rename the article to just 'Elder'? Vader0629 (talk) 19:28, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
