Creating a stub and skeleton layout. Would love some input from people more familiar with the Mal side of fandom! Tai 11:43, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Good start to the page! I moved it to "Mal Cobb" -- full names are preferred when possible. -- Liviapenn 18:52, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, I'm hoping others will dive in. As I said on Dom Cobb's talk page, I don't know that Mal Cobb is her real name though, as her name is just listed as "Mal" on IMDB and she may have kept her maiden name. That's why I named this page Mal (Inception), which is also the canonical tag on AO3. Most dreamworkers in Inception have only one name; Dom seems to be the exception. Do you or anyone else have links to any official sources on her name, perhaps something in the shooting script? Tai 19:21, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Hmmm... I was going by Wikipedia, but they may be going on the assumption that she took Dom's name. If it's just Mal in IMDB, I'll go ahead and move it back to just "Mal." (According to Doro, it's preferable to name pages without the disambiguating fandom tag until absolutely necessary-- the bit on the character naming page is a bit misleading. I did the same thing with Anthea at first.) -- Liviapenn 19:45, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
