Ok, so this is probably just me but which are the first names and last names again?

How I think it the first and last names go:
Yuki Cross
Zero Kiryu
Kaname Clan (accoroding to japanese official websites it Clan not Kuran)
Takuma Ichijou (I always thought his first name was Ichijou)
Hanabusa Idou (I always thought his first name was Idou)
Senri Shiki
Akatsuki Cain (Again, I always thought his first name was Cain and spelled with a K and not a C)
Luca Souen (I thought her name was Ruca, not Luca)
Rima Touya
Senri

maybe I'm the only one who cares but ehhh, I get confused sometimes whith different animes using first name and last name as the character's identified name (they call Naruto, Naruto not Uzumaki)

no. i care too. i've been meaning to point this out for quite some time now, but i see i've been beaten to it. ^^ i need more cr points!! hehe

even though, i still prefer using the romaji versions of their names..'Clan' is english for 'Kuran', as KAIN is the japanese version for CAIN.

and, LOL. at first i also thought that ichijou & idou's names were such..until i started reading the manga.

also, i think the names used (the most common ones - in the anime and in the manga) are more universal. stereotypes from english translations can be therefore be avoided, if you know what i mean. :D

Hehe, I see. I just seriously started to get confused by all this stuff. I was so unsure how the names where spelled or said. I was also thinking that Clan was Kuran but in english. Good thing that cleared up because I was about to say ... those two names are totally off by like a mile ... LOL ... and I kind of figured that Ichijou was the family name because I know about his uncle (I read the manga too) but was totally unsure because I thought that Kaname and Ichijou were close. I know that in traditional Japanese fashion, you only use the first name if you are close with that person and add suffixes if you are close but not too close ... AHHHH Japanese traditions confuse me with all these name rules ! ! !

yeah! it did me too. i had to start learning those complicated rules when i purchased my very first manga - tsubasa chronicles vol 5. ^^

but at least we got to understand once we read more japanese-related stuff. i guess it's part of being an anime fan.
