    Default English character names

    Guess the English names for the human characters in Black/White!

    My guesses:
    Prof. Araragi - Prof. Willow (sounds better than Prof. Yew)
    Makomo - ?
    Cheren - Charlie or Jared (both sound sort of like Cheren)
    Beru - Belle/Bella
    N - N

    I think the professor will keep her Japanese name. I like the way it sounds, and I dunno, it just feels feminine to me and thus is appropriate.

    Araragi will be called Prof. Orchid.
    Makomo will be called Cheren's Mom.
    Beru will be called Bella
    Cheren will be called Charlie (I still think it's a s/he)
    N will be called Atlas (Bioshock ref!)

    Last names needn't sound feminine, even for females. The only thing necessary is that it be some sort of tree, preferably a rather well known kind of tree.

    Bella will work, and N could stick. Dunno about the others though. Actually, Professor Willow sounds fine.
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    It's his Japanese name, so why does it matter?

    What's wrong with Maple?

    Twilight reference ftl. It does sound nice, but it will forever remind me of Bella Swan.

    Also in Twilight, Charlie Swan. And it's just an ugly name in general.

    ^ Just because a shitty character had that name doesn't mean the name is bad. Either way, I think it will be Belle or Bell, not Bella.

    Wouldn't be the first time somebody's suggested an already-taken name, either. Remember Hihidaruma = Infernape?

    The thing that's wrong with Maple is that it's been used by me in a fanfic. As a male character.

    Prof. Araragi- Prof. Yew
    Makomo- Idk...
    Beru- Belle, Bella is overrated. And if they name her Bella, Cheren better not be Charlie.
    Or the rival Edward *shivers in disgust*
    N... Maybe something like Nathan?

    I claimed this badass. Yeah, fear me.

    I know that names to not need to sound masculine or feminine. I merely stated that the reason that I would like it to stay the same as the Japanese name is because I, as me personally no one else, think it sounds feminine and that has an appeal to me.

    Here's my next guess for names.
    Cheren could be, against the general boring majority's Charlie, called Chester. Will this happen? Probably not.
