Spelling of Name

The article title spells the surname as Shicklegruber, but in the body of the text it says Shickelgruber. I imagine the latter was intended. Shouldn't the title be altered? If so, how? ... And I personally think Schickelgruber would be best, keeping the presumable original spelling (like Schwarzenegger *here*). But maybe it's too late for the poor c. Of course all know (don't you?!) who the real Schickelgruber was. Kyrmse 04:59, 10 November 2005 (PST)

Actually, Hitler's name was never Schickelgruber. If I recall correctly, it was one of his ancestors (his father Alois?) who changed the name. And good for Hitler, otherwise the crowds instead would have been forced to yell Heil Schickelgruber!
BTW, in this particular case I wonder if an americanised spelling ("Shicklegruber") shouldn't have our preference... --IJzeren Jan 05:33, 10 November 2005 (PST)
His father changed the name, yes, and Hitler himself was actually very pleased. While taking total responsibility of the inconsistency, I would personally favor the Americanized version of "Shicklegruber" (with a note that the original spelling was "Schickelgruber"). Comments?

Only one: don't even think of having Adolf von Hessler's father changing his name from Schwarzenegger to Hessler! :))) --IJzeren Jan 06:05, 10 November 2005 (PST)
LOL!!!!!!! No. But I have uploaded a slightly modified version of the photo including--among other things--blond hair and brown eyes. Zahir 06:17, 10 November 2005 (PST)

This article is up for de-proposalizing. Any objections? Zahir 21:12, 3 March 2006 (PST)
