Since we now know her real name, is this page going to be moved to "Carol"? - UnrealLegend 12:53, 17 September 2011 (CEST)

Considering that she is referred to as Mom almost exclusively (even by herself), and fans and editors will expect this as well, I propose we continue to keep it as 'Mom'. I find this kind of article to be an exception compared to stuff like Steve Castle. --Sviptalk 15:29, 17 September 2011 (CEST)
Okay, just wondering since "Amy Wong" was moved to "Dr. Amy Wong". This seems like a similar thing to me. - UnrealLegend 02:54, 18 September 2011 (CEST)
That's her title, not what she is referred to. The reasoning is because we do it with Zoidberg and Farnsworth. If people have a title (such a doctorate), we include it in the title (although, I don't think that is actually what is recommended, I think it is actually the reverse, but that is a whole other debate). This suggestion is similar to Steve Castle, not Dr. Amy Wong. Steve Castle makes sense to keep as that, because his real name does not ruin his character or significance, while moving the Mom article would. --Sviptalk 07:42, 18 September 2011 (CEST)

In an IAMA, Matt Groening has stated that her last name is "Miller".

This doesn't confirm her last name as canon, consider it as something that was scrapped - thus, non-canon. DannyJC13 (talk) 21:24, 29 June 2017 (CEST)


According to the Letters Storeroom in Futurama Comics #42 (UK version, not US), Mom's age is "around 150". This seems like a better estimate than "at least 134", but I thought I should post here before making the edit. Also, not sure how to cite comics as a source. -- the preceding unsigned comment was written by

I'm not sure if this would count. Generally the comics content we include is minor info (like age) but if the letters section wasn't in the US version, then it was answered by Titan rather than Bongo. UK#042 is the latter half of US#026. I can confirm that it isn't in AU#026, which is the same whole issue, but may not have included a US letter section anyway, also it may have been from a different US issue... - Quolnok (talk) 05:05, 27 August 2015 (CEST)
