Article name

Might not German-Americans (note hyphen) be a more appropriate name for this article? J. Noel Chiappa 18:26, 10 April 2008 (CDT)

Hyphen has been quite an issue and scholars are split as these sources show. I prefer to avoid it. I just changes the ttitle of "Swedish American" to "Swedish Americans" to stress the noun rather than adjectives.
