Default English US HeartGold/SoulSilver Names Revealed

Japanese Name = US Name

Hibiki/Gold = Ethan
Kotone = Lyra
Lance = Proton
Lambda = Petrel
Athena = Arianna
Apollo = Archer
Kobushi (Pokeathlon Founder) = Magnus

However, these may not be true. Except for Lyra. Her's is true.

But I liked Lucas's name... and Lyra's... (Holly would have been so much better)

LoL, Ethan fits him, or his appearance actually.

Those other names made no sense to me, but oh well. Why change Lance's name?

Some wierd names for my taste... but I do love the trainer sprites. Either way, pretty cool, I'm anxiously awaiting the release. :D

Can you cite your source for us so we know you're not just bullsh*tting here? xD

Lyra is one of my favorite names, but it DOES NOT suite Kotone well at all.

The rest are meh, they could have done better...

Ethan is the only one I find works decently well for the character, and Arianna`s.

Mew, Meow, Nya

Agreed. ^^ I like Kotone's new english name, but they could've come up with a better one.

I think Giovanna would have been a good name for the girl character, but it's too long. :L (Not a reference to Giovanni...) Maybe Sarah? Lyra's a good name for a different character, one with blonde hair. The hair color I think really makes a difference for name choice.

Kotone and Lyra mean "sound of a harp". In a way, it does fit.

In Japanese versions there two characters named Lance(the champion of course and a rocket executive) The rocket executive is the one getting his name change.

Names are ok, I don't really care. It's alright as long as they don't choose something really weird like Xavier.

Also if you good look under the names of the items in the HG/SS there's one called in the english version "jade orb" :O
