:shrug: I don't know, just feel like I need to let everyone know that we've been lied to on some of the names such as Denmark's and Liechtenstein's and Ukraine's.  Did you know Mathias, Lili, and Yekaterina were all just fan given names and not the real ones Himaruya listed could be potential ones?  Not even their (or at least Liechtenstein's) surnames are what we think they are!  So here are the official and officially suggested names Himaruya listed for most of the characters.

Note: All of the following names have the official spelling and accents Himaruya gave them.

America: Alfred F. Jones (official.)
Australia: Ralph, Christian, Kyle, and Jett (all listed potential names.  No surname given.)
Austria: Roderich Edelstein (official.)
Belarus: Natalia Arlovskaya (official.)
Belgium: Laura, Emma, Anri, and Manon (all listed potential names.  No surname given.)
Canada: Matthew Williams (official.)
China: Wang Yao (official.)
Cuba: Máximo (Juan), Ericemdo, and Carlos Machado (all listed potential names.  Machado is only the official surname to Carlos.)
Denmark: Andersen, Christensen, Arnesen, Simon Densen, Abel, Mikkel, Magnus, Bertram (all listed potential names.  Densen was counted as a possible surname and is the official surname of Simon.)
Egypt: Gupta Muhammad Hassan (official.)
England: Arthur Kirkland (official.)
Estonia: Eduard von Bock (official.)
Finland: Tino Väinämöinen (official.)
France: Francis Bonnefoy (official.)
Greece: Heracles Karpusi (official.)
Germany: Ludwig (official.  No surname given, although fans gave him the same one Prussia was officially given.)
Hong Kong: Wang Jia Long, Li Xiao Chun, and Leon (all listed potential names.  No surname given to Leon.)
Hungary: Elizabeta Héderváry (official.)
Iceland: Emil, Sigurður, Eiríkur, and Egill (all listed potential names.  Steilsson was given as an official surname.)
Italy: Feliciano Vargas (official.)
Japan: Honda Kiku (official.)
Latvia: Raivis Galante (official.)
Liechtenstein: Erika, Sisia, Elise, and Eva (all listed potential names.  Vogel was counted as a possible surname.)
Lithuania: Toris Laurinaitis (official.)
Netherlands: Tim, Govert, Abel, and Morgens (all listed potential names.  No surname given.)
Norway: Lukas Bondevik, Børre Thomassen, Bjørn, Kjetil, Knut, and Sigurd (all listed potential names.  Both Bondevik and Thomassen were counted as possible surnames.  Bondevik is the official surname of Lukas and Thomassen is the official surname of Børre.)
Poland: Feliks Łukasiewicz (official.)
Prussia: Gilbert Beilschmidt (official.)
Russia: Ivan Braginsky (official.)
Sealand: Peter Kirkland (official.)
South Italy: Lovino Vargas (official.)
South Korea: Im Yong Soo (official.)
Spain: Antonio Fernández Carriedo (official.)
Sweden: Berwald Oxenstierna (official.)
Switzerland: Basch Zwingli (official.)
Taiwan: Lin Yi Ling or Xiao Mei (all listed potential names.)
Turkey: Sadık Adnan (official.)
Ukraine: Irunya Chernenko, Maria, and Sofia (all listed potential names.  Chernenko was listed as a possible surname and officially given to the name Irunya.  Irunya is a bit of a nickname, however, and her name would more accurately be Irina, although Iryna is considered the Ukrainian variant.)

And there you go!  Hope that clears up any confusion :D.

Do you happen to know if Germania has a name? I haven't been able to find any, so I'm guessing there isn't, but are there any fandom names or names Himaruya listed as potential? Thanks in advance.

no problem
I am pretty sure Denmark is Matthias Køhler. It has popped up many many times when I look up Hetalia Nordics.

Also this list was very helpful to help my friend and I clear up any fights over the characters names!

who is Caroline from Hetalia? My friend wants me to draw her a picture of Arthur Kirkland a Caroline together but I have no idea who they are and her descriptions are off she says that Arthur Kirkland has blonde hair and blue eyes but he has blonde hair and green eyes. I'm so confused!!!

There is no Caroline, and England definitely does have blonde hair and green eyes.  Just ask her what she's talking about.
