Most of those don't even make sense given the katakana, I hope the localization doesn't use those.

English localization team giving FE characters horrible names? This isn't new. They've been doing this since Shadow Dragon.

I'd take comfort in knowing the localization won't use the "official" names. Most of those are gibberish or slightly-weird to a westerner.

Localized name translations always suck :(

These changes don't even make sense and aren't even close to real names. And some of their previous names were cool sounding, like Vake, Sol, Loran. Now they are Wyck (which is okay), Sort, and Lanrent. Not Laurent, Lanrent. Darn you Translation Team!

Those are the cracky Japanese Romanizations, not Localized names. Remember what they did with Joshua... Jhosua?

Where are you people getting the idea these are the localized names? Those are the official Japanese names.
