On this ticket two duplicate series were merged, but I believe the wrong name was applied to the remaining series: https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.ph ... 7&p=160520

Perhaps the remaining page, with the lower id, can be renamed to "Ekaterina" and there can be an alias to "Catherine"? Honestly there might not even need to be an alias to Catherine because it doesn't appear "Catherine" has ever been used as the true or alternate name for the series.

The only way "Catherine" would be appropriate I guess is if you translated the Russian "Екатерина" into English as "Catherine", which the production house doesn't appear to have done. It would be like us renaming a show called "Ива́н" -> "Ivan" -> "John" for English audiences.

I support this, but let's wait until the new site is live, because aliases are not available in the current version of TheTVDB.
