Doesn't Gropius Sound Cool? by shihfu Doesn't Gropius Sound Cool? by shihfu
Gropius is very fun to say. Haven't been active lately because I'm busy, lazy, and tired. I'm sleeping over at Black's house tonight and was forced to finish this.

Character Naming Tip #34: Have a deep meaning behind the character’s name

FYI: Hilda & Hilbert are German names and Gropius is a German last name. The Japanese must think that New Yorkers come from Germany and Slavic countries. And Walter Gropius was an important German architect who played a huge role in the Bauhaus movement. So N is the architect of a new world.

Edit: I was freakishly tired last night and wrote "Hilda and German are German." People really do name their children "German," though. I had a class with a guy with that name last semester.

I like Bianca better than Bel, but naming the main charecters Black and White is....racist.

No, it's actually because the Japanese have a really big hard-on for German related things.

World War II and all.

Yeah, that's also true. It'd explain all the Nazi-uniforms that they draw on characters sometimes. And maybe Hetalia.

But times have changed and N just doesn't has the 'that' factor anymores.
I blame what GameFreak released about him.
Here's the list if your wondering:

What do ya mean 'parents'? his ones are unknown.
Just maybe what Junichi Masuda said is true, maybe he is a pokemon...

The Funny thing is, that the german word for Justice and right is the same, "Recht".
"Link kämpft für das Recht"-> Link/Left fights for Justice/Right
