    Im cool with all the ones on the left that Phantom Miria has posted.

    As long as Im able to make out which charcters that particular poster is mentioning, Im fine with it. Of course, I do hope that posters will stick to the more common names that are circulating around.

    Eg: Irene or Ilena (A big NO to names like Ellena or Eleanor or something else)

    Of course I can be very picky if I want to as Im Japanese. I prefer "Garatea" but I'll follow the tide and call her "Galatea" instead.

    I did that too.

    'Isley' looks too much like isle - island even if it's said different, and 'Easley' brings to mind a slaughter during Easter holidays.

    I'm going with Easley.

    I think the real problem is spelling the name different when the pronounciation seems obvious in English. i.e. Millia vs. Miria.

    Just following along like a good little lemming...

    I think Eclipse is using "Easley" too. (Both sound the same to me - Isley vs Easley) Well...lets just close one eye and take both ya!

    Galactia sounds like a character from the movie Anger Management... the guard dude who's a gay prostitute during the night.

    Millia its okay cuz its sounds like a rock band.. err is the name of my favorite Guilty Gear character.

    Eclipse is using Easley, which annoys me a little, but not as much as "Dwellers of the Deep" vs "Abyssal Ones".

    I dont like most of the Names. all of them seems to be ill considered.

    Rafaela, Ophelia, Galactea, Riful, Pricilla...

    some names sound like sailor moon/or another kiddy anime names (galactea, ophelia..) or other like rafaela sound like names of prostitute or escort girls (Pricilla, Tabatha, Flora, Rafaela).

    there is not much thought behind them.

    in the beginnings of the manga, the names were good. They were normal woman/girl names like Clare, Teresa, Illena, Miria

    and the male names are good too

    but whats next? Angel? Amber? Ashley? Melissa? if i want to hear those cheap names i'll go a red-light district

    Those are only your ill-concieved notions of their names. To me the only weird name you listed is Galatea (Galactea doesn't exist btw). All the other names are perfectly normal English names.

    Well, most names are more influenced by Italian-Spanish-Portuguese than by English, and if you always chose spanish escort girls then of course they might share the same names.
    Galatea is a real name btw (cf http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galatea_%28mythology%29)

    1) wtf? I don't even remember posting...

    @)...

    Anyway, I like Easley more than Isley just because Easley... looks better for me. My 9th grade english teacher's name was Isley, and she was a bitch. Maybe that's why.
