Perhaps we should organize examples on whether or not they are: 1. Organized efforts by (at least some of) the leaders of the defeated group to revive the group, or, 2. Independent efforts by folks on the frontlines who hadn't learned that their group had been defeated. Thoughts?

"Type" splits are discouraged and soft-splits are usually a trouble source, so I am thinking "no".

The Undefeated was a better name for this page.

That kinda sounds like the exact opposite... The Undefeated sounds like the winner of the war.

The Undefeated sounds like a trope for people who are never defeated. Very much not what this trope is about.

But it also sounds like what a group like this would refer to themselves as, especially those that don't know the war is supposedly "over". And if the "winners" can't get rid of a "remnant", is it really right to call it a remnant?

... yes? That's what makes it a remnant... the fact it remains.

And the thing is, maybe they'd refer to themselves as "undefeated" but you know who else would (and has a much better claim to it)? The guys who won the war.

So... was Free France during WW2 The Undefeated? Think not. That's why they are called The Remnant. It's a much more suitable name.
