There is nothing Japanese about Pandaria. If anything it's Chinese. Kthx

Wrong. Pandaria is an amalgamation of Asian cultures. Japanese names are just as fitting as Chinese, Korean, Thai, or any other name derived from an Asian country

Nothing Japanese about my name, thanks....
I'm not creative enough for a Chinese or Japanese name, so I went with one derived from the catchphrase of a popular Nintendo video game character.

Which is kind of Japanese. Crap.
