No, there is no deletion log for these two articles, see https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...on%27s_Theorem and https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...Primality_Test, these two articles never exist in Wikipedia.

OK, I saw that the links in Prime Wiki are changed.

"Carol numbers" was first studied by Cletus Emmanuel, who named them after a friend, Carol G. Kirnon, and "Kynea numbers" was also studied by Cletus Emmanuel who named them after a baby girl, why he can name numbers of the form (b^n+-1)^2-2, but I cannot name numbers of the form b^n+-2 and (x^p+-y^p)/(x+-y)?

Someone else can explain why a part-time faculty member at the University of the Virgin Islands [1] is able to convince some people to use these names, but I'll add that using the (apparently completely made-up) names of video game characters is problematic in and of itself for trademark reasons. Stick to real names if you're going to make stuff up like that.

Thus can I use my friend's name or my idol's name to name these sets of primes?

Indeed, I am the main person researching minimal primes (start with b+1) in base b for bases 2<=b<=36

I think the most important word in all this phrase, which was missed by you and by the people who posted after, is the word "studied". Or well, the posters after you wanted to be polite and didn't mention it deliberately. I can also invent a million types of numbers which have some trivial relation to each-other and name them somehow, but nobody will give a dime. If you come out with some real work about those, some interesting theory and proofs, then please amaze us and we will let you name the numbers however you like, pets, or cartoon characters, but as long as your whole "study" is only about naming and nothing else... well...

I'm not sure the term "researching" applies here. "Minimal primes" is generally regarded as a topic in recreational mathematics, not a research topic.
