Or maybe Tres, Trei, etc.
I can see the player girl as being Allison, it matches her look.
I see the boy as a Cole or Kyle.

Awww, I'm glad someone else sees it. :) She reminds me of me, and I wish my name was Alli so I guess that's where it stems from. The male protag totally looks like a Kyle (not referencing Totally Kyle js). Cole would work too, but I'm leaning more towards Kyle. Banjiro could also be Trois lol. ;) Banjiro is an awesome name on its own though. I wish we could just keep it. XD

I get the feeling that Banjiro will keep his name even though most of the others have not except for Hugh who got the romanized version of his name.

Meh, I don't like the sound of Banjiiro, so I'm hoping that they change it. However, I do like the idea of Kyle for the main protagonist. Has a nice, cute ring to it that may of the others don't have (gold? Red? rly?)

Kyle and Allison sound like average english names like Brandon and May so they seem appropiate unlike Hilda and Hilda...

I CHANGED MY MIND I DON'T WANT ALLI TO BE HER NAME NOW cause I'll feel unoriginal ;o; I do like the sound of Kyle and Alli (or Allison) much better than Hilda and Hilbert. Like...idk what they were thinking when BW was getting localized. :/

Perhaps the girl's name would be Alice, or Lea,perhaps Isa.

Since we only have the protagonists and Banjirou's English names not revealed, I guess this should now be called the "Banjirou and B2W2 Protagonists English Name Speculation Thread".

I did come up with a few themes for the protagonists' names but now I have a new one.

Kyle and Remy. It comes from "Kyurem", the version mascot.

Remy is a unisex but more common as female name so that's what I chose for the girl cos: Kyle + Remy = Kyurem.

I like this, except when I think of Remy, I think of Remy the rat from Ratatouille. Great movie and all, but Remy the rat is a boy. So I just think of it as a male name. They could go for a more obscure name like Rema though perhaps. Or maybe the guy could be Remy and the girl could be Kyra or Kylie. Something more uncommon, I suppose. After all, Lyra isn't really a common name and that's HGSS' female protag. So eh, you never know.

I was going with a theme relating to Kyurem.

Remy is like, one of those unisex names. I see a few girls with it. Although Rema sounds like a good name to go with that theme.

Male protagonists usually get the "primary" part of the theme while female protagonists get the "secondary" part of the theme. That was what they were doing when they named protagonists after game versions and also what they tend to name some characters in the Pokemon Special/Adventures manga.

Kyra sounds too similar to Lyra, so I wouldn't like that... it's like how "Mei" sounds too similar to "May".

I couldn't think of any "ky" names for the boy so I went with Kyle.

Yeah, not many male "Ky" names. Also, his Japanese name is Kyouhei so...idk maybe it actually will be Kyle? Mei makes me think of May too, but I don't think they'd reuse another protagonist's name. So maybe Mia or Mya? Which imo don't suit her so I kinda don't want those lol... Remy and Kylie still fit the Kyurem thing you were going for, just swapping Remy over to the male player. But I do think that's pretty clever! You know, I'd really take any name over Hilda and Hilbert honestly. lol So even if the girl is named Remy, it's WAY better than Hilda. Hilduhhhhhhh.

Well we know the protags are going to have matching names. Their Japanese names have things to do with transparency so I'm thinking

Clark and Clara. Like clear. But then again Touya and Touko were to do with transparency too but we got battle names

*checks what battler is in other languages* Or better yet, battle names.

Girls

Spoiler:
Averil (influenced Avril) - cute
Alma - I like it.
Cheyenne - Could work. American.
Deborah - Perfect really, totally a Hilda curveball type thing.
Madison - Maltida, Tilda (me gusta these two)
Tyra - good
Zelda - alol


Boys
Spoiler:
Art - could work
Averill - like the girl's
Barack - =3
Boris - Hilbert curveball
Harvey - Mew~
Kane - I like it
Tyrell - matches Tyra


There's more than that but those are the ones I liked. Though they don't match, I can see Boris and Deborah because they gave us Hilbert and Hilda last time. I like Art and Avril though.

Clark and Clara...I can see that tbh. He looks like a Clark. She looks kinda like a Clara I guess? :( I dislike the matching names though, if that's the case again. It's not like they're fraternal twins or something so idk why they have to match. They haven't really matched before BW, have they? Brendan and May, Lucas and Dawn...maybe there's something I'm missing. I guess I should look up the meanings lol. :( And if those examples do actually match, at least it's not an obvious match like Hilda and Hilbert.

Interesting choices Bluerang, I like Harvey and Madison.

Just remember that we can only have 7 letters in our character's name cos of space limits.

I like Alma and Averil the most. Since Hilda and Hilbert started with the same letter maybe they will too.

Also if they go with Barack they should pick a name that means fire for the girl (Barack means lightning). Though it seems unlikely that they'll pick that name for obvious reasons...

I just thought of another theme for the protagonists' possible English names:

Travis and Penny.

Cos it sounds like "transparency", which is the origin of their Japanese names.

Travis = Transparency.

Penny = Sounds like transparency.

I have to admit there's so many themes to choose from.

I have now compiled a list of names according to themes I thought of.

Possible names for the boy:
Spoiler:
Blake = "Black"
Damian = "Dark"
Kyle = "Kyurem"
Ryan = "Reshiram"
Thomas = "Thunder"
Travis = "Transparency"


Possible names for the girl:
Spoiler:
Fiona = "Fire"
Lisa = "Light"
Penny = "Transparency"
Remy/Rema = "Kyurem"
Willow = "White"
Zoe = "Zekrom"

If I stick with the Reshiram/Zekrom theme, the dude should be Vincent or Victor (Volt) and the chick should be Bree or Bella (Blaze)
Although I doubt Bella just because Bianca's Japanese name was Bel.
*is NOT a Twilight reference. LOL.

If that's gonna be his English name, we might as well make it Cory (or Kory), because that's more conventional. Pokémon, I think, is not a place for names like "Aymie".

Already used in the anime. You wouldn't happen to be a Kirbopher fan, would you?

Anyway, the things left to name are:

-A few new locations
-A few new items
-Shadow Triad
-Banjiro

The Shadow triad is already called the Shadow triad in english, they were in BW remember? Or did they give them individual names?
Ps: They have been shown not to be Chili,Cress, and Cilan

Maybe Banjiro will be Banjo...they sound similar...

I remember Serebii posting that the Absol owning Shadow Triad member was named "Dark", but all of them have the same Kanji I think. I think they may go back to Team Rocket days and not name the Shadow Triad. Bulbapedia doesn't seem to have different names for them.

idk. I don't see a Cory/Kory in him, or any variation of the sort. I think he's a nice Kyle, Cole, or Giradialkia lol. And yeah, I think the Shadow Triad won't be getting individual names, so I agree with Xander about going back to the days when no one but you and Gym Leaders had names haha. "Triad wants to fight!" idk yo.
