It is just too plain to guess that the characters would be getting the names matching their respective marks i-e X and Y? I am against this theory.

Although the names don't have to start with X and Y, given the genetics theme and all that, it would seem pretty fitting if they did. I love Xavier for the male, and Yvonne for the girl seems perfect! although i wouldn't mind Yasmin either.

Well it's not usually the case, Hilbert and Hilda don't begin with B and W, Lucas and Dawn don't start with D and P, well not Lucas at least. I don't know what determines the protagonists names tbh, however they usually are uncommon names which I like.

Hilbert and Hilda, Lucas and Dawn was going with the games theme. Hilbert and hilda was about battle I guess while Lucas and Dawn about light.

Those seem to work if they are going to start with X and Y. They both seem to have European descent (at least Yvonne does, I have no idea about Xavier) so they are fitting at least. I like the sound of them too.

I hadn't really thought of the protagonist names beginning with X and Y. I don't think it'll be the case, but some of the speculations sure are cool!

I'm just glad B2W2's names were nicer than Hilbert and Hilda, and hope that we can expect similarly nice names (as Nate and Rosa) for X and Y. I still miss the days, however, where the protagonists were named after the games, such as Red, Blue, Gold, Silver and Crystal. I know that the series has evolved by the hundredfold since then and that strictly speaking, this now only applies to Red and Blue. However I think it would be nice to be able to refer to them all by their version names, as done in the Pokémon Special manga (not canon, I'm aware, and I digress).

I'd happily see these characters named X and Y, but otherwise I wouldn't mind seeing any of the aforementioned suggestions :)

From the official site it seems like Serena and Calem are going to be the canon names for the protagonists, both in the Japanese and English copies.

So glad it's not going to be Xavier/Xander or Yvonne/Yolanda. Sorry guys, but that's just not very creative!

Serena or Calem will be the name of your main rival, depending on your gender.
The male protagonist will be named Xavier:

Just so ya know, the names Serena and Calem are most likely supposed to sound like Serene and Calm, I knew they'd have a theme, and in this case, the theme is tranquility.

Or peace as Callum means Dove, and Serene means calm, and peace. So yeah peace and tranquility seems to be our theme this time.

The boy's name has a weird spelling imo, never seen the name spelled like that before. But at least Serena looks like a great choice for the girl, so not too bad choices of names Game Freak!

I like Serena, not too sure about Calem but I'll still use those names in-game regardless.

The names sounds Fire Emblemish. I like it, but why didn't they choose punny names like Xavier to fit a theme like they did with Hillbert and Hilda's names being a twin theme? Everyone likes themes, and they shouldn't try to mess with it for its perfection.

Nope, Serena and Calum are also their Player names just like with RSEDPPHgSs having the opposite sex character keeping their canon name.

Serena and Calem aren't bad names. I thought Xavier and Yvonne were amusing choices for the main characters considering males have XY chromosomes and females have XX.

After looking at them carefully they aren't the same characters. Xavier and Yvonne are the heroes while Calm and Serena are your neighbors. Game Freak just used the same model than Xavier and Yvonne and just made them Hatless. Also they have different hair style.

Female example:

Yvonne:
Serena:

Corocoro said that they were the opposite sex character, so they are Serena and Calum. Yvotte and Xavier were like Whitlea, and Blake (irc) from BW.

Also @ Pinkie-Dawn, they do have a theme, peace and tanquility as Serena means calm, peace, and Calum means Dove, a symbol of peace. Also the theme of BW wasn't twins it was strength as that's what the meanings of Hilda and Hilbert add up to. Similary Dawn and Lucas were Light, and Red and Leaf were based off their games of debut. Rosa and Nate are a word play of Resonate.
