(3)
_X_  I accept the English name "Adyghe; Adygei" (if to be included)

Add also "Circassian" as alternative English name, equally mentioned by
Ethnologue.

(4)
___  I accept the French name "adyghéen" (if to be included)
_X_  I do not accept the French name "adyghéen" -- Comment:
I propose "adyghé", it is the name used in "Les langues du monde". Maintain also
the alternative name "circassien", since the name "adyghé"(in French) originates
from the indigenous name and the name circassien ("circassian" in English) seems
to be an alternative, occidental name equally mentioned by Ethnologue.

(5)
_X_  I accept the indigenous name "adygebze" (if to be included)
___  I do not accept the indigenous name "adygebze" -- Comment:
Add also "ad[latin small letter schwa]g[with small letter g with stroke]e", this
form of the indigenous name appears in "Les langues du Monde"
