Spelling of first name.

In some scores, Smith's first name is sometimes spelled "Sydney" and sometimes "Sidney".

Does anyone know which is really correct? If this can be established, it might be good to use the correct spelling here, and to rename the article if necessary. M.J.E. 04:01, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


The Pazdirek catalog has the spelling 'Sydney'. I found no Sidney Smith, and all works of the Smith, Sydney IMSLP category are in this catalog at the Smith, Sydney entry. Could be a misprint by some publishers. Coulonnus.

The Library of Congress uses "Sydney Smith", but records both "Sidney Smith" (a common misspellnig) and "Edward Sydney Smith" (his birth name) as variant forms. I've added these to the category pages so that they'll show up if anyone searches for them — P.davydov 04:40, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
