Rename to Archy family?

As I read in Subgroup Temperament Families, Relationships, and Genes #Families, Dominant belongs to Meantone family and "Archy family" and in the introduction of this article (Archytas clan), I see the Dominant temperament in the list. Any suggestions how to cope with it? --Xenwolf (talk) 12:47, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Clan was Gene's term for subgroup family. Yeah it's sometimes confusing and the use has never carried on in the community. Not all clan pages can be renamed tho, as some of the subgroup temperaments haven't got distinct names (example: Quince clan). FloraC (talk) 17:36, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. I added the synonym as redirect lemma hoping that my conclusion archytas == archy is correct. --Xenwolf (talk) 09:19, 22 May 2021 (UTC)
