And there you go! Hope that clears up any confusion .
Anyway, thank you for your work. I know ukranians get histeria everytime they hear somebody calling Ukraine Katyusha, so, hopefully, people will start using other names for her.
Some name's are just kind of offensive. Like Denmark's Fandom name Matthias Kohler. I'm fine with Matthias it's an actually common Danish name, though I prefer Mikkle, Christensen or Andersen much more; Kohler is GERMAN. NOT Danish NOT even Scandinavian it's straight GERMAN. I know they are a minority in the country, but Den's supposed to be 100% Danish. It's not even a Common name I looked trough 1000 surnames, not there. And their is a VERY disliked Norwegian politicization, buy the last name Bondevick, I even asked and exchange student at my school. it's just plain ignorance, and it's annoying.
Vogel is actually a very common surname in Liechtenstein itself, plus I see Liech being the type to choose a surname that's easier to pronounce for people that aren't familiar with her language. I see Liech also used to Lillian as a old human name, but changed it as modern times come along.
I've always referred Denmark as Simon Denson for a human name and human aus in general. If you're okay with that.
I've also like to use Sigurd for Norway's human name and Erikur as Iceland's human name. While I prefer Timo rather than Tino for Finland's name.
I don't blame Himaruya for picking not the best human names for the countries, because there's not the best ones he could translated in Japanese or the translators in English give a different or alternative translation. Then again Himaruya did give his country a girl's name.
I personally like to think that Norway is Børre Thomassen, but people always say his first name wrong so he goes by Lukas (possible his middle name?). I like Børre the same amount though!
I haven't done enough with Iceland's name and I do like Emil, for Iceland. I know it's a common Danish name so it's a little justifiable that is might be popular in Iceland, but at this moment I'm not sure. I'm too busy trying to find names for the female characters. (I'll send you what I have so far if you want.)
Well Tino is actually a Finnish name so I'm fine with it as it is. If Hima-papa had better resources I'm sure he would have done 3000% better when it came to the names, but the man spoils us enough as it is! But are Africa and South America nations too much to ask for! (Please don't make them blonde!)
I hope that Himaruya will make a variety of skin colors for the African and Latin Countries, because they aren't the same shade you know. I'm not African nor Latin, I'm German Greek American.
Hetalia is based off of sterotypes and there's this funny, yet stupid stereotype in Japan that all North American and Western people are blondes. The Japanese love blondes or at least the hair color. So I'm not really surprised that most of Hetalia's European countries are blonde, because it's based off of a Japanese man that writes on sterotypes on countries from the Japanese POV.
Though, I definitely prefer most most of the countries all being older then 17 (save the Micronations), because I'm not not comfortable with 15 year Olds representing countries with deep history.
Liechtenstein was a country before Switzerland, they are not the same country, not actually related, they cannot have the same sure name. There are also basic religious problems with this.
By that logic 90% of the work should have the last name Kirkland, because of Britain's influence. You are basically implying Australia doesn't deserve a name of his own, becuase his culture is basically the same, and that's both rude and offensive.
IF THEY ARE NOT THE SAME COUNTRY THEY WILL NOT HAVE THE SAME LAST NAME.
(Sealand isn't a country don't you dare use that as a defense.)
Also this list was very helpful to help my friend and I clear up any fights over the characters names!
Sorry about that. *awkwardly rubs back of neck* Heh.... just trying to help with info. I just didn't know Mathias was his fan name~
I too was shocked to find out Matthias was Fan-non since it suits him so well, but some of the names Hima-Papa said he liked such as: Mikkel, and Christensen (Chris or Christen for short is really cute), and Densen for a Surname i think also suit him extremely well.
And don't worry KID seems like he would be quick to forgive..or wouldn't care at all.
Vietnam: Nguyễn Thi Kim-Trung
Wester order is Kim-Trung Thi Nguyễn
阮施金徵 ← I think this is correct. I actually found each individual Chữ nôm: No google translate was involved.
阮/Nguyễn: is the most popular Vietnamese last name. Stereotypes. Go figure.
施/Thi: The most common female Vietnamese middle name. Honestly I was too lazy (It is just beyond me at this moment. God finding anything on Vietnam is so complicated. But I love her so I tried extra hard!) to look up all the different meanings of female middle names, if I could even find them! So I just went with what was common.
金/Kim: Can mean Gold. It represents the legend of “Trieu Thi Trinh” and how it was fabled that she rode into battle on the back of an elephant whilst wearing golden armor and carrying two swords.
徵/Trung: Although this is a boy name, it’s supposed to represent the story of the Trung sisters. Seriously look it up. I want a Disney movie about this. Trung means central or loyalty quite fitting for Viet anyways! She probably gets embarrassed by her half Boy, half Girl name.
