    • Halmg is our native name. Kalmyk is widely accepted modern version. Old maps of 16-17 centuries usually name us as Calmouk --Calmouk 15:27, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

  • I DO support it! We should promote the awareness of the region and the language in the rest of the world--Makonda (N)
  • Support, but why not use the ISO/DIS 639-3 code xal? Other Wikipedia subdomains use ISO 639 codes. If each language has to choose himself his own subdomain name, other Wikipedias could ask to change their code (Venetian asking for vec --> veneto, etc.)... :o) Hégésippe | ±Θ± 21:55, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
