Since R = L in Japanese, the Japanese prounounce Light's name "Raito". Even so, he was named Light, not Raito, by Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba (creators of the original manga). We may confuse his name due to the fact that people insist on calling him this because of the pronunciation used in the raw (Japanese) versions of the anime.

ok first,I read the manga before the anime.IT said in the manga that light's name was Yagami Raito.Is it the fansubs?,or did they really change his name.Because R is L and L is R...
Please respond.
WHAT IS HIS REAL NAME?


Raito and light are the same thing. Japanese people cant pronounce the letter "L" so when they say "L", it sounds like.. "Eru" So for Light, "Raito". And for L's real name, L Lawliet, they say "eru rawrieto"

Got it?(:
