I prefer all of the English Eeveelution names, because they're the only translation with a pattern for the entire group.
....because shutup.

Me too. Blacky could be borderline offensive, especially since Japan pretty much has a minuscule population of black people.
The Boondocks on Adult Swim is my favorite anime.

Japan has a minuscule population of anything but ethnically Japanese people. They're absolutely one of the most homogenized nations in the world.

I like the Gen II Eeveelution names the best ^_^ Almost voted for Blacky (which is not offensive btw) but Umbreon is just too cool a name.
Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.
