- This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater was introduced on LTO-80A3 (for which it served as the chart title). The change was approved in 1976 (IAU Transactions XVIB). - Jim Mosher
- According to Neison (1880), the British Association Lunar Committee (Birt?) at one time advocated changing the name Langrenus F to Livingstone but their suggestion was not adopted in later catalogs.
- Bilharz was also once known as Vally (Cogevinas Vally), or Wally. This was one of Felix Chemla Lamèch's new names (Whitaker, p. 228). Again, the I.A.U. did not accept that name. Research Ewen A. Whitaker and Danny Caes (August 2003, mail correspondence).
