Fiarrow is a good name... what's wrong with Fiarrow?

As we all know, Nintendo decided on the awful name of Flametalon for Fletchling's final evo.

But it's Japanese name is Fiarrow. I think that's a perfectly acceptable name for an english name! Fire Arrow. Why would they change that to the abomination that is Talonflame?

Changed my Talonflame's nickname to Fiarrow.

I would have preferred Flarrow, tbh. Flare + Arrow/Sparrow.

Too close to "Fearow".

Flamtalon isn't a bad name.

I like Firebird. It's Fire + Bird. I think the simplicity is what makes it work.
