    How many times has that happened before ? I've seen you correct the edo tensei 3rd coffin confusion at least 6 times since my own discussion with you about it.

    Anyways, are you talking about the Naruto Bridge thing or the Kakashi thing?

    ^ The Naruto bridge. There's really nothing to correct there though, you either know it or you don't and it doesn't really matter one way or another.

    Something even more persistent than the third coffin is Kenpachi's shikai, most people still don't seem to understand that.

    I knew there was a bridge called Naruto in Japan, but did't know there was a whirlpool, hence the lastname, interesting..

    ^ Well, now they're pretty much just trying to deny it instead.

    all the names in japanese have a different meaning duh, there are no invented names like Victor, Maria or Carlos, so in every manga that has japanese names its obvious that they mean something.

    Victor: Literally, victor.
    Carlos: Alternate of Charles, derived from Karl, a Germanic word for "man"
    Maria: Alternate of Mary, popularized by several characters in the bible, derived from Hebrew Miryam, the meaning is uncertain, possibly meaning "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child", may also be Egyptian in origin, possibly derived from myr, "beloved" or mr, "love".

    you got my point, what you did was going to the roots of language to get that and at least victor get to my point in japanese they dont go to other cultures and get translation for their names no one i named rock(wich is John or for spanish pedro) or leave at least not in our language of course if you do something like what you did meaby you find it but the point is this thread is to show that a uzumaki means wirlpool so like it was some sort of embleming mystery for like Stonehenge or something that you have to search a meaning for, i have a teacher last named takenaka and i know it has to mean something with bamboo so its not the big deal

    I've heard Maria/Mery/Miriam translated in three ways, myself - "headstrong, constant," "bitter," and "beloved." Anyway, Adonai is right - names have meaning in every language, whether we know what they mean or not. In Naruto, they usually mean something.
