Choco PieChoco pie – Since this not a proper noun, I recommend changing the name of this article from Choco Pie to Choco pie. Semper Fi! FieldMarine (talk) 10:34, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Well, but wait. There is no such English word as "choco" AFAIK. Either there is a thing called a "Choco Pie" and that is its proper name, or we have...I don't know, "chocolate pie" I guess. Looking at the article, it appears that there are two things being talked about here: some actual products with an actual proper brand name of "Choco Pie", and some other things -- moon pies (or Moon Pies) and so on. It's possible that "choco pie" is now a genericized term, but I'm not sure of this. I would recommend at least considering leaving the name alone, or changing it to "Chocolate pie", although the OP's suggestion might be OK if this really is a genericized brand name...

I would support keeping as is if a singular brand name, but I do not believe it is. This name of a product seems similar to Moon pie, where there are several companies that make them. Semper Fi! FieldMarine (talk) 01:06, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
User:Herostratus: scotcheroos, bossche bolen and honmei choco are not English words either but they are still not proper nouns. Read the article; it tells exactly how the name choco pie became genericized.  AjaxSmack  06:13, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
OK. This seems right. User:AjaxSmack makes a cogent point re the word "choco". The difficult thing for me is that it's not a word in an English-speaking country. I did not know that Korean used an alphabet, though. It's not entirely clear to me that I could make and market "Herostratus's choco pies" here in the USA, I guess... Korean intellectual property rights apply here by treaty (I think) but Korean court rules re what is and is not intellectual property are not binding or even necesarily considered in our courts (I think)... but OK.

  • Support per all of above. N.B.: Article text needs to be rewritten to match title after and if the move is made. Herostratus (talk) 07:13, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
