Like the title says, what would you think if that happened?

Like if Naruto's name was changed to something like Jake
Or Tamaki to Lucas?


I think that'd be awful cause their names would be too plain and it'd take away the fact that the anime is japanese and that it was made in that country. I'd be really upset if that were to happen.

p.s I've noticed that when i go into some threads people are being mean saying stuff like "this thread is the most stupid thread ever!" or "i want to smash your keyboard to stop you from making stupid threads" well if you dont like this thread then dont post. I dont want anyone being mean ! If its a dup lock it, i dun care!

it will be all weird... lets take example Sekai of School days... Sekai means world... Tsukiumi of Sekirei.. tsuki means moon..umi means sea.. so others as well

Its more fun when they obviously don't understand that a name is in English as it is...

I would like for some one to explain why they chose for Kallen to not be Karen?

If it happened, I don't think it would change much to me. Of course, I'd prefer the Japanese names. xD It wouldn't be like, ''omfg eengarleesh names I not be watching dis anime mahn'', though. x3

If Naruto's name was changed to Jake, the show would have to change it's name to uh ... Jake? ._.

I have system to make good english names....

First the first name..

Anything will do, the only rule here is the apperance and and name coorditation
exAmple: Naruto - Nero, Terry , Kenny

Surname:

Heres the fun part..
there are many ways to do this, but first you must think of something relating to the character background
example: naruto - used as container for 9 tailed fox
- jailed
- sealed
- Kept

then add on that with cool words like but alterning the spelling

Solkept
Jaylbeast
Foxseld

Adding up
Nero Solkept
Nero Jaylbeast
Nero Foxseld

Terry Solkept
Terry Jaylbeast
Terry Foxseld

and so on

Some anime characters has a deeper meaning to their names but changing it might lose its original essence and meaning.

well if thats the case.. try the closes literal meaning
or something that will be a good stand in for it
example: Yuuki -- Literaly--> Snow
Yumi -- Literaly--> Water -- Reated meanings --> Flow, Clear, Serene

I'm one of the few who don't go ballistic when they change names. "OH NOEZ USAGI IS NOW SERENA?? NOO!! *head explodes*"

The only names I hated were Mew Mew Power's. Heck the title sounds stupid as hell.
