I was really hoping there was a Sailor Moon and Digimon fan on the staff, but I'm fine with the names. Besides, I use my real name when playing anyway. I just like idea of using canon names so that it will be less of a mouth full like the "______male player" or "______female player" when talking about the games in general.

I'm fairly pleased with the newly announced names of the protagonists. They're not BAD by any means- I'm just delighted they're not abysmal (I'll never, ever be able to recover from Hilbert/Hilda. Just... BLECH). These names are quite.. unexpected, and pretty nice. They're names, and ones that won't affect me all that much in my playthrough, so I don't mind too much, but they're nice, yeah :P

Nate is a really cute name, I love it! It suits him well n.n Rosa however sounds Italian and definitely does not suit the female protagonist imo :p I like the new names tbh, but anything's better than Hilbert/Hilda haha.

I like em both. I've known some cool Nathans, and Rosa could be short for Roselia!....
I'd name my kid that if I was in the Pokémon world, and the name was widely known to represent something pretty

As said many times above, better than the BW protagonists, imo

I loooooove them! Nate is one of the most awesome names ever and Rosa just makes me think of Rose from Homestuck.

I like the names. They seem simple but are fitting as Black and White are simple shades. Also someone another site pointed out that they're proably a pun on Resonate. I noticed that Hugh is proably a verbal pun on the word Hue.

I really like these! <3 Very pretty-sounding and much better than Hilbert and Hilda imho. Although I do think Rosa doesn't suit the female protagonist too much, I'll get used to it very soon haha.

I love the names. I never had a problem though, seeing as I always named my character either my nickname or my favorite name.

They're great names! The only problem is I don't ever use the default names.

I have a few friends named Nate, so I don't mind that. As for Rosa, its not that bad. I would've liked just plain old Rose better, but meh.

Nate, eh? cue the unending line of Uncharted jokes.
Rosa seems unusual, but it's nice.
though, if I end up playing as either character, I'd end up naming Nate as Drake/Kyouhei/Palmtre and Rosa as Mei/Meiling/Amy.
THIS! I love Nathan Drake! Haha, but more to the point, I do like their choices for this game much better than the original B/W, but I still prefer the Jap names better. However, I rarely use the default names for the characters anyway, preferring to make the games more personal.

I unofficially named the female character 'Faye' months ago, so she'll be Faye to me always :3

I like Rosa though, I am a fan of uncommon names.

When I posted my reply, there wasn't.
Although, honestly, I don't get what these names have to do with Black and White. I was hoping they would be Ebony and Ivory *gets slapped*
