I was watching this and it just kinda came to me.

What are some things in anime that simply has "a weird ass" name? Could you in the audience come up with a better naming convention?

So for me the character that comes in mind:

Ren Ren Ren Nagusaran Rensia Ruroonren Nakora

The reason for strangely named anime is mainly to cause conversation about it. If their content was normal, and their naming convention was normal then it means a normal anime which will last a season and be forgotten. If their content is normal, and their naming convention is abnormal, then it means it will create a buzz and more people may watch it to find out why.

Ren's name is 000 and I forget the rest. It's just her designated number in her native alien language and because she's a 'faulty' DearS her number starts with a zero.

The craziest name in anime is Valentinez Alkalinella Xifax Sicidabohertz Gombigobilla Blue Stradivari Talentrent Pierre Andri Charton-Haymoss Ivanovici Baldeus George Doitzel Kaiser III

Also known as Vash the Stampede

This makes me think of Mika Kuouzumiaiginsusutakeizumonokamimeichoujin from Resort BOIN.

I came across her while roaming the site. Apparently, it can be hard to forget freakish names, which is probably why they come up with them in the first place.

Easy to remember, perhaps, but only if you can learn them in the first place.

Most of the time, the names are just a spin on some character trait. So, I try not to pay too much attention to it. It's just a convention.
