Did u know that:

- Naruto is the name of a ramen (Naruto's favorite food) topping which is white with a pink spiral. It is also a city in Japan.

- The reason the ninjas all wear protective headbands is because Naruto originally wore goggles (first episode), but the artist of the manga thought it took too long to draw the goggles, so he replaced them with the forehead protector.

- It's impossible to do the monkey's seal because it need two left hands.

- Uchiha, is another way of pronouncing "uchiwa", or a paper fan, which is actually the Uchiha clan symbol.

- "Hatake" means 'field' or 'farmland', The name "Kakashi" means 'scarecrow'. Understandably, Naruto uses a scarecrow look-alike of Kakashi to practice on the day before Team 7's first test. Also, when Sakura spies on Kakashi so he would take off his mask, he replaces himself with a scarecrow to get rid of her.

- The tatoo on Gaara's forehead means love.

- "Ino" means "a wild boar" (this is why Sakura calls Ino a pig or "porker" to insult her).

- The name "Inuzuka", meaning "house of dogs", belongs to a clan that was one of the most powerful in the Chiba prefecture in Japan during the Edo period. They were known as "dog warriors." "Kiba" literally means "fang".

Yes. Would a ninja wear an orange suit which repairmen usually wear? I think not.
