    I'm not 100% sure though.

    Shinra Tensei

    The word Shinra doesnt have a direct translation and can mean many diffirent things but I found one site that said it may come from the monk Shinran

    "Shinran, a Japanese monk who founded a form of Buddhism ao popular it was debased, based on chanting the name of the Amita Buddha so the chanter could be reborn in the pure land" Everything2.com

    Tensei - means reincarnation of the soul

    Expanding on Askia's post, I found the word Shinra associated with a few Chinese/Japanese gods.

    Go to this page: http://www.onmarkproductions.com/htm...#shinraMYOUJIN


    If you keep reading it for a while he is also associated with the god Susanoo.

    Seems like EVERYONE associates with that guy at some point in Japanese mythology.

    EDIT: Quote from site: "Shinra Myoojin is also associated with the Shinto deity Susanoo. In some sources, the latter, after being exiled from Japan for having threatened his sister Amatarasu, is said to have emigrated to Korea. Susanoo was also assimilated with Gozu Tennou, the most powerful epidemic god. Like Shinra Myoojin, Susanoo is a fundamentally ambivalent deity, who could protect from epidemics when worshipped properly, but could as well destroy unbelievers through the same epidemics."

    Sounds like a good fit with with what we know of Pein and his ambition. *shrug*

    "God's Judgment" or "God's Commandment" is the best guess I can come up with.

    Here's another link I found discussing such: http://animeprodestiny.forumcommunity.net/?t=22605083

    That's naruto. Naruto is also a city in Japan where the sea flows into the ocean and the current creates whirlpools. This is the location of the Onaruto bridge, the second longest suspension bridge in the world.

    About Kushina, hmmm...I'd like to see where that translation came from, just out of curiosity. Do you remember where you saw it? I have been searching for a direct meaning of her name for a while and have only linked it to the princess Kushinada of myth so far.

    yeah it was wikipedia. i know it isn't very trustworthy, but i couldn't find anything that contradicted it. or anything that confirmed it for that matter. oh well

    the second largest suspension bridge eh? well we know where massashi got his inspiration for that "great Naruto bridge"

    Re: Naruto Names and Meanings

    Hmmm...

    The list on the first page is really old by now (and has some mistakes) and lacking lots of characters. If someone here is bored and would like to post an updated list which contains corrected/recent character names, I'll edit it into the first post.

    Feel also free to list translations for techniques or other terms. We do not need to limit this thread to people's names only.

    (note: I only acknowledge lists that include Pain with an 'a' )

    //edit
    If you want to do a really pretty list, use our tables-bbcode:

    So would that list also only include Choji whith that thing over the "O" instead of Chouji, Guy Might instead of Maito Gai, Mangekyo instead of Mangekyou, Kyubi instead of Kyuubi, etc?

    What if it says:

    Pein = Pain

    I'm not sure what you try to ask. Whether you write Chouji, Chôji, Chooji or Chōji is not interesting. It's just a different romanisation but the name itself is never wrong. The only mistake you can do here is to be inconsistent with the used romanisation system.

    On the other hand, Might Guy and Pain are the correct names for the characters as intended by the author and that's what should be used in information texts.

    How fans refer to them in private shall not be my concern. I also have the habit to refer to Death Note's Light as Raito when fangirling and I also write 'Gai' not 'Guy' in discussions but I don't do so when I write something more official. That's simply the point where fans should draw the line between 'I want it because it sounds better' and 'so it is regardless of how idiotic it sounds'. DGM is a fine example of a manga that makes me facepalm about every confirmed name romanisation...

    But if you're concerned it, I have no problem to list the 'fan names' and variations after the official name, e.g. Pain (Pein). Compromise?

    Re: Naruto Names and Meanings

    Its interesting this topic, Kishi really thinks carefully on the characters, some names fits perfectly in the manga. Amazing.

    I have a question:
    What is the meaning of Madara and Danzou?

    Just curiosity.
    The power of hate is the power to kill... The power to kill, is the power of vengeance. -Gaara-

    Order of Surnames and Given Names

    Why have so many people started calling Naruto characters by the <given name> <Surname> format?

    It's Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke, not the other way around.

    Seriously, you like the story, you like the background it's set in, you like the Japanese mythology it's based on, yet you choose to disrespect their culture and impress your own upon theirs?

    I personally think this is disrespectful towards the mangaka's effort, but it could be just me.

    Who agrees with me?

    Re: Order of Surnames and Given Names

    It's not disrespectful IMO...everyone calls the characters how they want to...western media uses Naruto Uzumaki(and I mean western regarding japan, with a few exceptions in Europe)...and people tend to use the order in the way that person's own culture uses it
