I do believe we don't have a reference for "Big Macintosh", and Faust spells it "Big McIntosh". If anyone has a reference for the current spelling please provide it, otherwise SweetieBot will have to change every instance of "Big Macintosh" to "Big McIntosh" on the wiki. -Throwawaytv 21:50, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Best thing we can do is either find the voice actor, a quote from Jayson, or CC. Shadowdemon137 22:03, September 26, 2011 (UTC)
So far we have this wiki page that says the apple is macIntosh. But for anyone who has Friendship is Magic, part 1, The Ticket Master, or Applebuck Season needs to turn on CC to know.-Mylittlewut 22:12, September 26, 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately I don't have the closed-captioned videos anymore, but in any case they are less reliable than Faust, since the CC people aren't part of the show's production. I'm going to wait a day or two and if there's no reference by then, I'll have to use SweetieBot to change each occurence of "Big Macintosh" to "Big McIntosh". -Throwawaytv 22:18, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Big McIntosh. It's the correct spelling regardless (Macintosh is a computer, McIntosh is the apple breed), and also Faust spells it as such. That should be reason enough. --Callofduty4 22:23, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

(McIntosh is also how the name is spelt in Scotland). However, considering how about 95% of the community knows him as "Big Macintosh" (including myself), there remains a possibilty that Faust could change the spelling to mirror this. Smuff [citation provided] 17:56, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
