From what I have heard (and I may be wrong), there are
proposals to use the
Celtic names in the English Wikipedia as the article title. I
think the English names should stay, but that the Celtic names should be
used in other languages. When you said that the Celtic names are mostly
"official" over the English versions, do you mean that the Irish version is
now used in English as well? I know that there is a movement towards this in
Scotland, where the Outer Hebrides are now known officially in English as
"Na h-Eileanan Siar".
