but.... but... Genma Saotome was a panda D= (sometimes)
The issue I have with Japanese panda names is that most of them are controlled by players who do not know that pandas do not live in Japan.

I hate stupid enough already. I don't need people to run around showing me any more than they already do.


I must admit, stupid keeps me entertained, but I prefer not to have it ruin my rp immersion.
What about mine?


For an RP server? It works well enough as a surname. Mistjade is the sort of last name most Pandaren have. Mei Mistjade would work well.
Traleda? You honestly took this post srsly? Just exploiting the irony of the situation here


I have a defective joke detector, but at the time of my post, only your first post and Koro's were up. I had no indication that there was a joke.
I NO RITE!

I just returned from China and I didn't see a single Kung-Fu Panda-man named Aho.

It's actually Julie-Su Mistjade. =)
I have a Native American name. Mwahahaha!
There is nothing Japanese about Pandaria. If anything it's Chinese. Kthx

Pandaren were originally Japanese themed, despite being pandas. This led to a backlash in China and it was changed.

I do what I want.
Pandaria is not China. It's a fantasy land amalgamation which draws on several Asian cultures, including those of China, Japan, and Korea (has anyone noticed any others?) It's no more China than Northrend is Norway.
not guilty
<-- Not a Japanese name.

It's not like I like you or anything!
I'll name one 'Boris'

Just to really mess with your head.

But Boris is a goose.
I wouldn't know the difference at any rate. I tried to make a Panda but the animations just killed it for me.
People naming their characters whatever they want. The horror!.

Also Goku is a Chineese name. In the Chinese story "Journey to the West" (which the original Dragon Ball was loosely based on) the name of the Monkey King was Son Goku.

He rode on a cloud and had a magical staff that could change size at his command. He was also a bit of an a-hole.

No, Nick Bradshaw is a Goose.

And I'll name one Natasha so we can try to thwart that moose and squirrel.
Why. Are. You. Making. So. Many. Threads!?
