In the french version of CardCaptor Sakura, only the word Sakura had remained the same. Tomoyo became Tiffany. Shaolan Li became (scoff) Lionel (i mean come on, my schoolbus driver was named Lionel)

I guess some expressions are hard to translate and/or pronounce in another language. (My first name is. That is, i feel every english-speaker mispronounces it ) , but the effort should be more into realism in translation and pronounciation.

Just watch Zero no Tsukaima, where the main written language is supposed to be french, and you'll see me cringe.

Sailor Moon did that.

and it sucked that they changed the names.

No anime should ever be altered from its original form.

I think, it would be so strange. D:
Me and my friends had a joke that when Naruto came to US,
they would change his name to Henry.

If they had English name then it obvious wouldn't be japanese anymore. I mean it is called Anime for a reason...and of course, it'll have japanese names. IT WAS MADE IN JAPAN!
