DD instead...

Merlin Holland (Oscar Wilde's grandson) says he has no information regarding Wilde's TOB at all. The baptismal certificate has no birth time listed and Dublin's Representative Church Body Library archive confirms that the original document doesn't mention the time. I wonder where Cyril Fagan got that "3:00 a.m." time...Filipe F 18:35, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Lois did not give AA for nothing. I suppose she had good reason to trust Fagan, when he made such a claim. You can try to dig out the two original publications from 1962 and 1963 quoted in the source notes. Category DD does not apply, when one side claims 'I have no recorded birth time' and the other two parties claim 'I have recorded time', and happen to agree on the time.--Alois 11:50, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
