From an artistic, professional point of view, artists do all kinds of things with their names, including having a single name. However, from a legal point of view, her name is still (as far as I am aware) Maxine Bailey in both the USA and Canada. This article should describe that she uses a professional name without capitalization, and as far as I'm concerned, the rest of the article can either conform with her professional name or use the legal spelling of her name. The matter should be addressed near the top of the article. To have an article named "Maxine bailey" is neither legally nor professionally correct; to name it "maxine bailey" violates out own naming conventions. And BTW, E. E. Cummings used capital letters only irregularly in his verse and did not object when publishers began lower-casing his name, but he himself capitalized his name in his signature and in the title pages of original editions of his books.

I have made a stab at this, putting all the source names back they way they were. I hope this has been addressed enough. Thanks for pointing this out.Pat Palmer (talk) 09:01, 18 May 2022 (CDT)
CZ:Naming conventions says generally use common names (not legal names). I don't know how that would apply here. We do this for Tony Blair, Joe Biden, Pope Francis ... There are undoubtedly article titles here that don't conform to this (ex?)policy, e.g. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, which is neither common name nor legal name, but apparently a Wikipedia artefact.
