...though it's obviously meant to be "Doc".
Galea and Mr. Saridakis from the Hakuryu episode. There's also Temacu, but I guess the reason for that name's weirdness is justified.
Can they just have last names? That's all that really gets me.....
"Most" of the main characters, with two of them having debatable last names that the fandom either made up (in the case of Waterflower) or the VA's made up on the spot, and two of those main characters haven't even been in the show in years.
There's May, Max, Dawn, Iris, Cilan--that's way more of Ash's travelling companions without confirmed or debatable names.
Then there's the rivals, only Gary had a last name, which is kind of strange since a majority of their rivals compete in major competition, and apparently [Name] from [City] is actually a good enough descriptor for most of them.
To be fair, Eric Stuart also worked in scripting and the production side of things, so he wasn't just voicing the role. He might very well have had the authority to give Brock a surname.
Ash Ketchum, Dawn (not D-O-N but D-A-W-N), and Cilan would be the big three (plz no NBA references :D) for me bacuse those names pretty much has WTF right next to them in the dictionary
For the last time, BW is NOT a reboot.

Cilan... and Burgundy? Thats a color, and although I'm sure there are girls named Burgundy... just what. Naming people after there hair color now I guess. That could explain Ash too....
Most of the main characters (except Jessie, James, and Max) have relatively uncommon names. I've always thought that was purposeful so all the Bobbys and Janes watching the show realize the characters are fake or something ^_^;
Actually... I'm still surprised that the localization team gave her a wine-based name. Although, I'd say that her hair color is closer to amethyst.
Iris are uncommon? If you count the rivals, Gary , Paul, Zoey and Kenny are also common, then again, there's still Harley and Trip...
