    The term "West Pomerania" is ambiguous, since it may refer to either Hither Pomerania (in German usage and historical usage based on German terminology) or to combined Hither and Farther Pomerania or the West Pomeranian Voivodeship (in Polish usage).

    The List of towns in Vorpommern includes all towns in present-day German Pomerania, also called Western Pomerania, and thus excludes towns which lie west of the Oder river, but east of the Oder-Neisse line (Stettiner Zipfel area), and thus historically are associated also with Vorpommern. For these towns, see List of towns in Farther Pomerania.

    "Western Pomerania" is the established term, just as "West Pomerania" is used for the voivodeship, but usually in combination with the voivodeship denotion. There hasn't been a problem with this way to handle it and there isn't now. -- Horst-schlaemma (talk) 13:03, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
