The only kind of consistency that can be provided for many languages
is whether everyone should use a name verbatim or adapt it to their
local conventions.  Such a guideline would not be specific to the Hurd.

Yes, in English it's the Hurd.  Like in English one has the Beatles.
When the Beatles are referred to in Finnish, they are usually called
"Beatles", without any articles.
