I agree that we should move this since (spoilers) she is Odin's daughter so she should have the appropriate surname. But I also think once we move it we restore the page so the Hela from the non-canon video games can have her own page.

I think it would be better to leave the name as Hela (Earth-199999) for the movie character. For one thing a patronymic surname isn't fixed in Norse culture. I agree that any children of Odin would like be Odinson or Odinsdóttir, but said children would also have the choice to switch to a matronymic surname... and in Hela's case she's so full of self-importance I can see her dropping any mention of parentage altogether, plus the movie doesn't present us with a patronymic surname for her anyway. The other consideration, and I think more importantly, is the need for searchability on the wiki. People looking for Hela will mostly be searching for the movie character, and I feel that the most effective way to reach the desired result there is to stick to not adding a patronymic surname. -- WarBlade (talk) 21:45, October 28, 2017 (UTC)
