Name Variants

(Redirected from Name Changes)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A list of English spelling variations and alternatives for many names and terms across various media in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series.

For the purposes of this website, the articles use a naming convention that takes into account the most recent Japanese romanization found in the manga or artbooks, as well as their consistency throughout multiple official sources.
An example of Araki writing out a name in English

Due to a lack of proper localization for much of the series' history, as well as different localization groups with their own preferences, a common problem for fans of JoJo is determining the correct English spelling of names. Both official publishers and fan translation groups often translate these names based on assumption or other reference material, or to avoid trademark and copyright issues outside of Japan.

While many character, location, and Stand names are spelled exactly like their namesakes in Japanese, it is just as common for Japanese names to be slightly edited to distinguish them from the original artist or work. Complicating matters is a lack of consistency on the part of Hirohiko Araki and Shueisha: spelling changes in both languages become apparent even in the manga, and can vary wildly across other official sources as well.

JOJOVELLER is the most recent artbook to provide English names for all major characters through April 2014, while some volumes and supplementary materials provide English names for newer characters and Stands.
