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.

Real gamers play for fun.

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

This one's called 'Red', and it's actually kinda Pokémon themed, so have a listen! Check out the links below for more stuff, if you like this!

My Pokémon Y character is the same as my username. If you see me as a Passerby let me know! I tend to get a lot of Passerby requests and I often wonder if it's people from this site.

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 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.

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*
