You-Know-Who

Nonce term used solely in Harry Potter books--Keene 14:05, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Also, all the translations of You-Know-Who should be deleted --Keene 14:10, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Keep. I've used the phrase as a noun, long before there was a Harry Potter. Maybe its American. Goldenrowley 06:22, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Harry Potter stuff no, lowercase generic you-know-who yes. Cynewulf 06:50, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Keep; but rewrite the definition. Here is a 19th century literary citation:
It's been in the English language for a long time. --EncycloPetey 06:53, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete or redirect the capped version. Keep the lowercase. bd2412 T 07:44, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Redirect capped version. Keep lower case you-know-who. Does "You-Now-Who" merit a reference via a WP link or a Usage note in l.c. version ? DCDuring 14:43, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
