No thats all right but why did they call Lorelei prima?

Lorelei's name was changed to Prima in the English version of the anime because 4kids was trying to fit the amount of syllables the Japanese name has. The English name "Lorelei" is three syllables while the Japanese name "Kanna" is only two. The name change really just made dubbing easier.
By the way, rather than locking this thread in the future, I'm moving it to the FAQ thread.
