Pinecone vs Pine Cone

Looking at this edit prompted me to check for the appropriate grammar rule. So far, the only resource I found indicates that both are correct (and only urges for consistent use). Merriam-webster seems to agree with what the article says. That leaves us with the question: which name do we choose? This would influence both the article content and the title of the page, so I think some discussion would be appropriate before renaming the page. --Stux 04:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
