"I live in Italy, I know" etc.
I assume good faith in you and I want to believe you. However, you need to provide an explanation for the multitude of results on "Lega Padania" in Google:

- Point taken. I've noticed the commas, parentheses etc. between the results, but I've also seen "Lega Padania" as an integer. Also, note that Wikipedia's policies suggest that popular names, even if they are not official, are mentioned and sometimes preffered over the others. Etz Haim 02:08, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Firstly, I agree that I've never heard the Lega Nord called "Lega Padania". Secondly, I'm assuming that if you know "League of Lombard" to be an incorrect English rendition/translantion, then you can help us to come up with a way to distinguish the precursor to the Lega Nord from the historical Lombard Leagure of mediæval times. (My interst is that an American group wanted to model itself after the Lega Nord. The first name they came up with, Southern League, was the same as a baseball organization, so they changed it to League of the South. (It should be noted that, unlike the Lega Nord, this group a) has little popular support and b) is not regarded as a "legitimate" party by most observers, but it exists nonetheless and should be noted in Wikipedia.)
- Hi, I simply seen that there is the article Lombard League that covers both the historical movement and the political party, then it's a better translation of the italian name "lega lombarda". The previous form "League of Lombardy" translated literally in Italian is "lega della lombardia". So, the form "Lombard League" is the correct one, in my opinion, for both the historical and modern movements. Lornova 17:43, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)
- Thanks for the clarification. Again, I always try to defer to knowledgeable natives. While I find the Lega Nord to be an interesting movement in its own right, I have already explained my motives for wanting to learn more.
