: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.

I wish that people would look into Liechtenstein's given human name that Himaruya provided, instead giving her a boring and lazy name like Lilli Zwingli.

Some people also use Matthias Kohler for Denmark, and Ukraine could also be Yekaterina (Katyusha is a nickname) Braginskaya. Liechtenstein could have the same surname as Switzerland too :) Australia could also be a Kirkland, and I usually use Jack Kirkland. Just contributing my ideas :)

Him apparently said there was a reason for that, and that it'd be revealed eventually. Considering the new strips with Prussia, it's bound to be a heartbreaking one.

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.

It's fine I'm not mad or anything...though looking back on it it seems really mean. ^~^
    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.

FANNON! I actually kinda wish people would stick with the names Hima-papa himself said he liked. I personally have no Problem with Matthias, but the use of "Køhler", from what research I've done, this isn't even of Danish or Scandinavian origin, nor is it common. In fact it is a common stereotype (as well as mostly true) than Danish last names end in "-sen" I prefer Matthias Denson, although I personally use Mikel Densen for Denmark. I also don't use Bondevik for Norway, as according to the Norwegian transfer student at my school, there is a not so like politician with the same last name...

YGOKOG Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014
 (Please excuse me I spelt it wrong XD !! I meant Braginsky haha) 
But okay, it's just I went on wikipedia and if I typed in Braginski, it would redirect me to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braginsk… which shows a number of Russian people that have the surname Braginsky, including APH Russia as well. Also I just checked now and when you put Russia's name in Russian (Иван Брагинский) into Google Translate, it comes up with Ivan Braginsky too

On wikipedia for Braginsky it says: Braginsky, sometimes spelled Braginskiy (RussianБрагинский), or Braginskaya (feminine; Брагинская) is a Slavic surname.
I've just looked on google and found this: answers.yahoo.com/question/ind…
Now I understand where you got the polish part from.
However it said with the Braginski and Braginsky that the ski part comes from Polish Heritage - whilst the sky part comes from Russian Heritage.
Although the person who answered also stated unlike most other websites I looked at, that Himaruya was the one who made a mistranslation (Since he is Japanese, it's probably difficult translating from Japanese to Russian and vice versa) "His name is officially spelled Braginski, and from what I can tell most of the fandom uses that spelling. However I have read that his name should be spelled Braginsky because of the name's origin". Also note Himaruya picked Russia's name around 2007-2008 so he's most likely been informed of his mistranslation now as most fans now refer to Russia as Ivan Braginsky and Hetalia based websites such as Hetarchive use the correct spelling too.

I love this. Thanks for clearing this up. I keep seeing people using the fan names, wondering where they're getting them from. Like I personally like "Kyle" as a name for Australia because it has a cute nickname "Ky". Where and who are these fanon names coming from anyway?
Not that people shouldn't use them. It's up to the fans what they want to use. I'm just wondering if it's because not everyone has access to what you have or if it's another reason.

I often feel conflicted about when to use the offical suggested names and when to conform and use the most popular fanon names.
I prefer to use 'Kyle' for Australia instead of the fanmade name 'Cody', but use the popular fanon surname for Ukraine's and 'Matthias' for Denmark.

What do you think? Do you feel like it's better to accept the names suggested by Hima or just stick to the popular names that everyone knows and loves?
