You might not of heard of this actress 

Thought I might as-well try to get this one decide on once and for all. 

Again, this is for the common name.

I must be a glutton for punishment. You do realise it was me that started the infamous original "Helena Bonham Carter" thread at the IVS site.

No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

And you know documentation is useless. Unless you know Helena personally, forget it. The media, Who's Who, her birth certificate. All these are useless.

Someone ask Tim Bur-Ton.

Personally I can't see where the problem is, her name contains no hyphens, it's not a case of Americanized because of marriage

This taken from Wikipedia.org

Bonham Carter was born in Golders Green, London, and was educated at the South Hampstead High School, a girls' independent school in Hampstead, London and later at Westminster School, a co-educational independent school near Parliament (Palace of Westminster).

Her father was Raymond Bonham Carter, who came from a famous British political family; she is the great-granddaughter of the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Herbert Henry Asquith, and members of her family are Life Peers. Her mother, Elena, a Roman Catholic, was a psychotherapist. Bonham Carter's maternal grandfather was Eduardo Propper de Callejón, a Spanish diplomat and former Minister-Counsellor at the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C.; her Jewish maternal grandmother, Hélène Fould-Springer (who converted to Catholicism at marriage), was a daughter of a French Jewish banker. Her maternal grandmother's sister was the French philanthropist Liliane de Rothschild (1916–2003), the wife of Baron Elie de Rothschild.

Bonham Carter has two brothers, Edward and Thomas. Her father, who became ill when she was 10, suffered a stroke during an operation to remove a benign brain tumour, and was subsequently confined to a wheelchair.


So she's English and since her father is Raymond//Bonham Carter should end all argument.
But since she's been in a lot of CoO US, we Brits must be spelling her name wrong.

Snarbo has the same data I've seen in multiple places.  I think this one should be a breeze, but I've been here long enough to know that won't be the case.

Too easy. She was born Helena Bonham-Carter, and like many in her family, often discards the hyphen. The Peerage has her family back many generations. Her father is listed as Hon. Raymond Henry Bonham-Carter; his father: Sir Maurice Bonham-Carter; his father: Henry Bonham-Carter; his father: John Bonham-Carter. John Bonham-Carter's father was Sir John Carter, but his mother's name is not listed. So at least four generations of Bonham-Carters preceded Helena. And both of John Bonham-Carter's children (Alfred, 18 Mar 1825 - 2 Oct 1910, and Henry, 15 Feb 1827 - 22 Mar 1921.) were named Bonham-Carter.

Perhaps this will help:


So her family name covers five generations, starting in 1788. Her family name dates to the year before the United Staes Constitution.
If it wasn't for bad taste, I wouldn't have no taste at all.

75% of voters so far choose Helena/ / Bonham Carter as the common name
Can this just be accepted now and her name banished from forum forever?

Until such a time happens when Invelos give us a generic method for defining the "common name", at which point it would have to conform to that! 

But... I hope so!
