Or maybe names that end with x or y. So Molly and Alex. Watch it end up being Gertrude and Bartholomew or something.
The funny thing is, I could actually see the female being named Gertrude. Pokémon would do it too.

Well let's just name them X and Y since GF is getting less imaginative these days starting from Hilda and Hilbert, and reusing Hilbert's design to Nate's and current names for the current games... From Black 2 and White 2 to X and Y. :/

But my useless ranting aside, I just hope it's beautiful but with the unimaginative side I'm seeing, I'm getting second thoughts about this... :/

Girls have XX sex chromosomes, boys are XY. That's what he was going for, I believe.
Oh boy, Xydian knows what is up.

        Now those are names I like.

        Otherwise I could see Xavier and Yolanda (continuing the X and Y theme) for the boy and girl respectively.

        Nate is already the name of the B2/W2 boy character so I doubt they'll use it again.

        I could definitely see them using Xavier, and maybe Yasmin.

          I like Yasmin, as he suggested (minus the "a" because idk I like it without it!) That would be a name I'd approve of, and given that B/W's were named after the colours (no wait we speculated that? I DON'T REMEMBER--nvm it might not be as likely). But most names I tend to dislike so chances are I won't be happy and it won't be that. :(

            It probably will be Xander/Xavier and Yasmin. But personally I hope the girl is named Carmen xD

              Well... I'm always astounded by Nintendo's name choices... *Cough* Hilbert *Cough* Seriously though, I hope they're Xavier and Yasmin, but I seriously doubt they will be.

                François and Françoise!

                If they do like they did by taking a word and deriving names from it (Resonate -> Rosa and Nate) then we could have something like Genome -> Gene and Naomi, or conversely Jean (or Jeanne) and Nemo. Okay, not the best example.

                  I would laugh all day if they turn out to be Xavier and Yuna... GF would have my taste in names this generation...
                  Xander I could see as well as Yasmin. Maybe the girl will be X and the guy Y so it could be Xantha and Yuki or something like that .

                    I think everyone here is pretty much betting on the protagonists to follow the whole X and Y theme we have going. However, the default names of the protagonists haven't seem to fit the theme of the games since Gold/Silver/Crystal, where the characters were pretty much named after the titles.

                    May and Brenden don't fit with the Land and Sea theme for RSE, except for their optional default names (i.e. Landon/Sean or Terra/Marina).

                    Dawn and Lucas, other than sharing a common meaning of origin ("light"), doesn't seem to exactly fit with the theme of space and time like Diamond and Pearl did. Nor did they really reflect the title of the games. Unless you really wanted to get technical with the gems and their correlation with light.

                    Later in HG/SS, Gold (or Silver if you played Silver) had his name changed to Ethan while Kris was replaced with Lyra. Their common meaning related to sound, which could more or less go with the importance of bells in the games, but one could say that's really reaching if you're bent on finding a connection between the protagonists' names and the theme or title of the games.

                    In Black and White we got Hilbert and Hilda (Oh my gosh GameFreak, what were you guys thinking!?), but the origin of those names basically mean to fight or to battle. That could pretty much fit for any Pokémon game honestly and it didn't share a connection to the game titles or the theme of the story.

                    Finally we got Rosa and Nate for Black 2 and White 2. A huge improvement over Hilbert and Hilda if you ask me. But again, their connection lies within the word "resonate." The only close similarity I see with those names and the idea of B2W2 is that the games were sequels and it was completing or filling in the pieces of what Black and White left open. Even that could come off as reaching.

                    My point is, I don't think the names are going to start with an X or a Y and they may not even relate to the theme of the games. Their names may be more likely to share a commonality between each other (and maybe be of French influence) than share a link with the games themselves.

                    I think that's what we should be looking for.
