Coup: Before you submit the name merge, please check to see whether you actually need a name merge, or just a certain kind of correction.

I notice that Timothy Cain at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5733669/ has two credits listed: appearing as himself in a 1961 episode of "This Is Your Life", and playing Tim in "Fallout: Nuka Break" in 2013. The 52-year gap in this career suggests to me that this entry is most likely a combination of credits for two different people, in which case you should not submit a Name Merge for them.

If the Tim Cain (I) at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1809014/ who has credits on several "Fallout" videogames is the same person who played Tim in "Fallout: Nuka Break", then I recommend correcting the credits for Timothy Cain on that series to Tim Cain (I) instead, without doing a Name Merge. This way, the Timothy Cain who was on "This Is Your Life" in 1961 would get to keep his page without being combined with Tim Cain (I).

You should submit a Name Merge only if all the data on both name pages applies to the same individual.

I hope this helps.
