Joe or Joseph

The convention that I've been adhering to and that I believe is documented is to prefer informal names that are more likely to be unique to the individual when such terms are what they use. This person looks more like a Joe, going be the article text. Here we go: "Titles and headings that include the name of a person should use the form that that the person most commonly uses/used, and if there is more than one common form the simpler of them." (LPedia:Manual_of_Style#Personal_Names) Is there evidence that he actually went by Joseph instead of Joe? -- Strangelv (talk) 18:39, 13 March 2019 (CDT)

  • One document says "Joseph Castrovinci" and another says "Joe Castrovinci." AMK152 (talk) 18:41, 13 March 2019 (CDT)
Formal names are often sometimes used for people who use less formal ones, but I've never seen it the other way around. For example, I'm James but never Jim or Jimmy. -- Strangelv (talk) 18:52, 13 March 2019 (CDT)
