I have to agree.
Bewbs can be quite enjoyable.

    Cheren is derived from the bulgarian word for Black and Bianca is White in Italian
    meanwhile Touya and Toukos's english names are derived from Germanic "hild" which means to fight

    Ooh, I like Rosa and Nate, means to resonate, or echo (Their Japanese names, Kyohei and Mei share this trait, since they're derived from kyōmei)

    Shame Hilbert and Hilda fit so badly in BW's setting, and are pretty dull-sounding names in general.

    Nate is a really good name IMO. It fits well.

    Rosa... I would probably like, if I wasn't Swedish. Here Rosa is a common nickname for cows, hahaha.

        What was their reason for banning you? I didn't realize that you could get banned from dA.

        The only names that I don't like are Hilda and Hilbert, I have no idea what they were thinking. Nothing against people who are actually named Hilda or Hilbert, but the names are just so out of place here.

          Hilbert and Hilda are out of place anywhere, really. I don't think I have ever heard of those names until the release of B/W

            One of the main challenges for english localization is choosing player names that have the same/similar meaning as their Japanese counterparts

            English localization from Japanese is hard to begin with, because of the cultural differences.
            So much dialogue has to be partially rewritten to make more sense to western kids.


            In other news, managed to manually up Borderlands' FOV from 70 to 110.

            An enjoyable game just became even more enjoyable.

              "So you're the one my Lord N is in love with" becomes "So you're the one my Lord N is worried about"

              hmph...

              Was that an actual line though?
              Because googling the phrase only gets me to this forum thread. :P

                Hey, nobody said the translations had to make sense! I wish a lot of the Japanese content moved over into the western adaptions.

                The names Hilbert and Hilda derive from the term hild, which means "battle".

                In fact, Hilda was also Maylene's name in the German version of the games. It literally means "battle woman".

                Pokemon always tends to have a theme when naming the protagonists of a game.

                D/P/Pt's Lucas and Dawn's names both have something to do with light, while B2/W2's Nate and Rosa, when combined, sounds like "resonate".

                Just noticed that Rosa looks like Princess Leia a little bit. I get it, Pokemon is an alternate universe of Star Wars created by Palkia when he was contracted by George Lucas. It all makes sense!

                I did know that their names had meaning dealing with various facets of the game (or just have general themes), but I guess what I mean by "Out of Place" is that they don't really seem to fit the characters. The last thing I'd ever think to call those two are "Hilda" and "Hilbert".

                @Hikari Most of that was already mentioned quite recently on this very page. :P

                Yeah, I agree, in such a futuristic and urban setting, I had hoped for some more "hip" names.

                Speaking of fifth generation, if N had kids, what would he name them?

                Something else classical music-inspired and even more nonsensical.
                Of course he'll never have kids, because he's an antisocial manchild who cares more about magic and prophesies than his own existence, and probably believes babies are made by hugging. :3

                Which is cool.

                This whole "world ending" on the 21st is all just a big joke.

                    Can't say I talk to PC people too much, just you guys and CarefulWetPaint on MAL. Seems the clubs are all on the verge of death and JE is like a graveyard.

                    Yeah, but the real graveyard on PC is Tabletop Games. I hardly see any active posters there.

                    I mean, the two boards Digi-kun mods really are the most inactive.
