      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ataulf

      "Ataulf (sometimes Athavulf [1], Atawulf [2], or Athaulf—"father-
      wolf"[dubious – discuss]—Latinized as Ataulphus or Adolphus; in
      Spanish and Portuguese Ataúlfo) was king of the Visigoths from 410 to
      415 CE."

      There is also a redirect from Athaulf to Ataulf. I was wondering if
      anyone on this list can address the dispute, and, more importantly,
      cite scholarly sources on it, on the wikipedia talk page.

      Thanks.
