    Default An interesting fact.

    I just literally stumbled across this while reading about something else. We all know naruto's full name "Naruto uzumaki", and we all know "uzumaki" can mean "whirlpool", coming out to "naruto whirlpool" (or whirlpool naruto if you're using japanese pronunciation), well check this out, there actually IS a naruto whirlpool in japan Info link And the bridge that crosses it is called the naruto express bridge =P (similar to the great naruto bridge in the naruto universe that crosses less then pleasant waters). Perhaps this is where his name came from? or it could be just a interesting coincidence.

    This may have been (and probably has been) brought up before, and if so i'm sorry for re-posting info, but i just thought it was kinda neat.

    Sounds reasonable.

    And if you consider that the arc with the bridge was even put in the storyline, its very likely.

    Err but that bridge is called "Naruto no Uzushio" see its diferent. same meaning.

    But its very probable..

    Also got to remember that Naruto could be from "Naruto-maki / naruto for short" the fish paste which is used for the Japanese food as a starter or to accompany for the Japanese noodles.

    One bridge, other the food he loves.. you get either coincidence

    ^Or, it could be both. Kishi mixed 2 meanings into Kakashi's name, so its possible for Naruto's to be too.

    I could have sworn that this had been discussed before, either that or ST and wikipedia is starting to mix together in my mind.
