Name Changes in English (Currently making a list in the OP, pitch in)


Recommended Posts

That works for me! Even if it weren't a pun it sounds like a good name for a sea side town, so I think it works.

Preferences aren't "wrong." They're either agreed with or not. So, technically your understanding of English is wrong.

SEE?! It's already starting!

Comprehensive list (wip):   Monsters:           Towns:       Dungeons:       People:       Now less relevant OP:  

Sardine Bay!

There's probably a real place called that for all we know.

There is, in Bermuda.

 

I still like the wordplay, Fishbel to Pilchard (Sardine) Bay.

Well, Pilchard Bay in Bermuda.

There's an actual Sardine Bay in Colombia though.

So I rewatched the segment of the direct with DQVII's reveal, and I got a couple of things I noted. Namely, two characters names are different than in the PS1 version.

Specifically, Melvin has been changed to Sir Mervyn and Gabo is now Ruff.

This was all I could get from just the footage.

Personally, I like Melvin/Mervyn's new name, not so much Gabo's, but the name changer exists so I'll likely just change it back to Gabo.

Ruff? I think I'll rename him Rowlf. :wd_coolslime::tounge2::thumbsup::PRowlf.jpg
That name would've been PERFECT.

Until whoever's in charge of the Muppets(Is it Disney now?) sends lawyers to SE's doors.

You do know the name Rowlf isn't just limited to the Muppets, right?

I didn't.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battl- wait, I already made this joke this week...

 

OH NO, I'M ON RERUNS.

 

 

I was being playful with the lawsuit comment, though.

 

Although now I'm curious about what other series have characters named Rowlf.

I can just imagine the head lawyer of Disney being exactly like the blue haired lawyer from the Simpsons who speaks with the nasally voice.

It's been a very long time since I've seen The Simpsons.

 

Since Gabo and Melvins names have been changes, I wonder if Aira's changed. I know Keifer's is still the same. I haven't seen a screenshot or anything that shows Maribel's name.

I think Maribel is safe. Someone pointed out that since she and Kiefer's names weren't changed in IX when the new translation ideas took over, her name will likely still be Maribel.

Pilchard Bay? Now that's a name I am disappointed about. What is wrong with Fishbel? Or perhaps Fishvale, another perfectly accurate way to translate the town's name? Both already have the english word "fish" in them, and "-bel" and "-vale" are common in town names. Why the hell did this need to be changed?

Cause new translation ideas. Whether you love them or hate them, they're gonna happen! It's really "ruff" sometimes...

Oh yeah, I forgot about that.

Melvin's name change makes sense in the fact that it's going back to old English roots which have a lot of other Language influences.

 

Ruff makes sense too since he couldn't talk before the boss. But Erdrick stated all this. The names mean nothing to me really. I'm so excited

According to this, Fishbel is now Pilchard Bay.

Considering Pilchard is another word for sardines, I like it.

Not too bad. I'm glad they're keeping with Estard.

 

I'm so hyped for this game. I seriously can't wait. :)

They are? Awesome!

 

This could be a sign that some characters and parts of the world will keep their names from the PSX version, but that may be a stretch.

Yes, we've established that in like 5 threads already. We're so hyped we're repeating ourselves.

I'm repeating nothing. I don't repeat.

 

By the way, Kiefer and Maribel were both localized with those names in Dragon Quest 9. The modern translators have used those names.

So far, we know:

Maribel = Maribel

Kiefer = Kiefer

Mervyn = Melvin

Ruff = Gabo

Estard = Estard

Altrades Abbey = Dharma Temple

Numen = God

Fragment = Shard

Pilchard Bay (ugh) = Fishbel

 

Am I missing anything?

After watching some of the videos of the remake, I'm starting to wonder what names Kasim, Flower(AKA a******e ... Actually SE, name him that please) and Fosse are going to have.
