    See, with this and Colloseum and XD, you have to wonder why they change Japanese names when they're just going to change them to something even weirder, non-sensical, and absent from the world's catalogue of Western naming conventions.

    *cough* Solana is a "real," Western given name. My cousin is named Solana. It means "sunshine" in Spanish. Now Lunick on the other hand...I've only heard of that as a surname, not a given name, so that one I *would* count as rather strange...

    Solana is OK. Lunick sounds Harry Potter-ish. And another Spenser.

    I also heard that Go-Rock Squad Subleaders will be named Garret, Billy, Clyde and Tiffany and its leader will be named Gordor. Is that true?

    They are a band actually. Every time you meet them, they will play their song. Kinda like a motto.

    So...do we have a "who's who" from Japanese to English? Got Lunick, Solana, Spencer, Joe and maybe Erida, but the rest? o_O

    So why does the 'pedia entry say:
    Garret (ヤライ Yarai)
    Billy (ヨウジ Yōji)
    Clyde (ユウキ Yūki)

    I'm not contesting; I just can't be having mistakes. =\ I wanna make sure everything's right. Mostly on Yuuki though.
