It's great that this article improves, and may be able to stay. On parentage, I think the points are worth re-siting, if a citation can be found, so I retain them here:
...a son of Vesey Henry William Davoren (1862–1944), an Irish surgeon, Major R.A.M.C., and Edith Anne, daughter of Alfred Hoyte, late Surgeon 61st Regiment.

User:7&6=thirteen, how does being a "specific film" make this citation acceptable per WP:IMDB and Wikipedia:Citing IMDb? AleatoryPonderings (???) (!!!) 15:51, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

User:AleatoryPonderings It's a question of citing and overlinking. Matter of judgment. This is that specific movie. I mentioned it because I considered your edit to be in good faith, and protocol on edit summaries generally mandates that. Too many notes. I am not "edit warring" over this, although I anticipate that criticism from the AFD crowd. Can't make them happy. We can wait for othersto have input, or you can put it back. Whatever floats your boat. Cheers. 7&6=thirteen () 15:59, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
I don't see a reason to use IMDb when we have other sources. I'm not that fussed about this but I also don't want the filmography to become a pile of IMDb citations. I'll leave it for now. AleatoryPonderings (???) (!!!) 16:03, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
I recognize your legitimate concern. But you purged deleted it from the beginning intro of the filmography, too. 7&6=thirteen () 16:35, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
In that case there was an actually reliable source to back up the claims made: Alan Goble's Index. I don't want to edit war but I also don't see how there's any question that, in this case, IMDb is not a proper source. Surely there must a reliable source to use instead. AleatoryPonderings (???)

Move to Vesey O'Davoren

Most sources show he is better know as Vesey O'Davoren. We can still keep his full name bold in the lead. Per WP:COMMONNAME eg. Bill Clinton not William Jefferson Clinton. This is not a formal move request, a courtesy I'd like to move it - are there any objections or discussions before? -- GreenC 20:32, 13 December 2021 (UTC)

Support. In my research I found news articles for "O'Dovoren", "O'Davernon", "O'Lavoran", "O'Davreen", "Davaran" and even "Bavoren" (the last one was an article about a 11/23/1923 traffic stop where an 80-year-old guy walked into traffic and Vesey was the driver than hit him). There's a 12/5/1928 mention in the LA Times for his naturalization as "Davoren" so while that's likely his legal name, he's overwhelmingly known as "O'Davoren" so per WP:COMMONNAME I support for now. It may be that "the great Irishman of the Caravan players" (as he was called in a 9/12/1921 article, as "O'Davernon") has some British film and stage fame without the "O", and if substantial sourcing can be found there we could change it back.
