    From Wikia.
    The name Whitebeard is not a literal translation. In Japanese, his nickname is Shiro Hige. The word "Shiro" meaning white, and "Hige" meaning "facial hair" (the Japanese do not have words for the individual styles of facial hair).

    Basically. In Japan they call the pirate Edward Teach "Kurohige". This is ambiguous in Japan and can be used for both beard or a mustache.
