So in his native language Barack Obama is called "Barack Hussein Obama II", but in English it's "Barack Obama"? And then there is birth name (P1477): "Barack Hussein Obama II (English)". --Kolja21 (talk) 11:23, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@Kolja21: I think it should be birth name (P1477): "Barack Obama (English)" (today's most known name, like English label) and birth name (P1477): "Barack Hussein Obama II (English)" (official name or something like this for the moment of born). --putnik 13:03, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
With moving the example to the property page, this has been solved. Mbch331 (talk) 20:52, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Should the string includes all parts of full name (middle name, patronymics, surname) or just a name? --Infovarius (talk) 21:09, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
@Infovarius: It should include notable parts of full name. For most cases it's like label on person's native language. For Russian Wikipedia it's the same of "оригинал_имени" ("original name") parameter in infobox. --putnik 13:33, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, too vague. We should have a monolingual property for "personal name in original language" only. --Infovarius (talk) 18:25, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Best is to request addition of the language on Phabricator or on Contact the developers. That's the short term solution. They are working on a long time solution, but don't know how long that will take. Mbch331 (talk) 20:52, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
What is the difference between this property and P1477?
name in native language (P1559) can be useful to a Wikipedia where the language used by the property has a different script (ruwiki uses for languages other than ru). P1477 is for cases where the current name of a person is different from their (full) name at birth. Both would generally be in the same language.

In some languages stress of words, particularly names, is irregular and thus occasionally indicated by acute accents. Do we consider these acute accents as part of the original name and store them within this property, or would it be better to omit them? At the moment I deal with cyrillic names in Russian language in particular where this is an issue, but the question is basically valid for all languages where optional acute accents are used to indicate stess. Just to make sure: regular diacritics are somewhat different and not part of my question here.
I think that the question holds its own answer. As far as the accent is optional, it should not be used in normal writing. Maybe a specific property, or qualifier ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:58, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Okay thanks, I will do so in future. Since I’m not able to use IPA and IPA transcription (P898), there will unfortunately not be any information about name spelling in the affected items in near future. Regards, MisterSynergy (talk) 05:54, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
@Thibaut120094: So there's no overlap between coverage of these properties? P1705 looks more general to me, so could cover the same uses as this property is currently used for... I've asked for more feedback about this at Wikidata:Project_chat#Native_names. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 23:47, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
