Hazel sounds cool, perhaps she goes by Haze (sounds a bit tomboyish). It matches with her punk look considering the haze machines used.
Also Forever you might end up jynxing things...remember how trollish GF can be

Of course she's gonna jinx it.

I like Haze. Sounds...poisony. B]
But I see it more as Hazel. Hazel is better. B]

I still like Nate or Wade for Shizui. <333

Gonna throw some different names out there...

Homika: Donna or Daphne (poisonous plants).

Shizui: Eddy (whirlpool).

I need to wait for the Japanese names for the heroes and rival to speculate about them.

It turns out the name Jade has something to do with rebellion, so that's my new prediction.

Homika-> Jade or my previous prediction Ivy.

You will always be known as Forever, forever...and a day. ;D

Didn't notice her freckles, actually! I like Hazel even more know that I've seen that. Fisher would be cool for Shizui, though. I like that. <3

I have to agree with For-Requility on this one, Fisher isn't a good name...
Maybe his name can be Mist to match with Hazel.

Yeah I really don't like that name. Kinda matches her being poison-based, though. Don't know why but it makes me think of poison so ya.

Not that bad, but it's okay. Mist would be fine.

How about some French reference for the Water leader with "OWEN" (eau) or a variation of (EAUIN?) ?

MISTy does not agree with you~

Do they have to represent their element?

Wallace/Juan don't really scream Water to me. Iris wasn't very Dragon Like either.

According to Bulbapedia Wallance comes from "Water" IMO it seems like a contraction of Waterfall.
Back on topic: Well they usually match their looks or their typing, Juan was a looks name by the way (Don Juan- Spanish guy)

Wallace shares the first letter with Water, the same like Steven shares the first letter with Steel. It could be indication that they already knew Wallace will be Champion while giving him English name during R/S translation.

Gym Leaders' names don't always match their types. Considering Unova is based on US, Homika could be named Alice because she plays rock/metal - Alice in Chains, Alice Cooper. One of Alice Cooper's most known songs is called Poison, so yeah.

Agreed on that 100%. Alice is a great name for her cos it refers to Alice Cooper's song "Poison" and Homika uses well, Poison-type Pokemon.

If they don't use this, I will be a little disappointed.

Alice isn't a bad name but will Nintendo of America, Europe, etc. really choose such a pop culture reference?
Shizui name could be Tide, it sounds kind of cool imo.

So Keldeo changes formes in Oath Woods? I really like that name. Maybe because it makes me think of the original Fire, Water, Grass Oath thing, but still!

I could see Shizui with the name Wade. It fits the water type well.

After listening to the rival's theme rearranged on Youtube many times over in the past 40 minutes....and hearing Hugh.....I don't know. On one hand Hugh sounds like a tough sounding name. However...for a tough(as in physical) looking person in-game, not the rival XD

But still, I'll get used to it.

Hugh... a name I was not expecting.

Pretty interesting choice for the rival, I wonder what default names they'll give to the protagonists... I'm hoping for a theme in the names.

We have the default name for the rival but not for the protagonists, I would expect it to be the other way around
Hyu isn't a bad name, perhaps they'll change it for the english version though.

Apparently it's Mei! For the girl that is. That's so cute I love that name more than Touko. :3 I wonder what it'll be in English, May? lol.

Or Hue. Hey, look at that. Another rival with a colour-themed name. I wouldn't be surprised to see him named Hugh/Hugo in the English release.

Now, the protaganists. Kyouhei and Mei. Hmm, dunno what theme, if any, there is.

I'm thinking Hugh or Hugo for the rival's English name since it is a pun on "hue".

Still thinking what theme to go with Kyouhei and Mei's names.
