Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

There is problem now in representing names and other disambiguation pages in Wikidata. Some believe that similar names from different languages should be linked in an item, others oppose any unequalities in titles. Also there is such type of pages like "topical disambigs", which tell about several notions in one field. Presentation will show how the problems can be dealt with the aid of Wiktionary. The examples will include some personal and family names.

Then problems and other possibilities with the inclusion of Wiktionary into Wikidata will be considered. The overview of different schemes of inclusion will be done and discussed. One of the propositions is to use strict hierarchy of word properties developed in Russian Wiktionary.
