This thread is primarily used to list names and terminologies that appears throughout the novel and their English translations. Editors should make note of the translations here, and make sure they remain constant throughout all translated chapters.

This thread is not open for discussion, if you have any alternative suggestions or disagreements (or any terms that I forgot to list), please post them in the unified guidelines thread (or PM me). I'll respond to your messages there, and make changes to the list here if needed.

Some names I used from Volume 2:

People:
[=] Captain Wardes - Her Majesty's Royal Mage Guard, Griffin Squadron Leader
[=] Fouquet
[=] Prince Wales Tudor of Albion - the last survivor of the Albionian royal family.
[=] Princess Henrietta
[=] Duke(?) Marchinelli - De facto ruler of Tristainia. Marchinelli is my lame attempt at piecing together a name, and Duke is the highest noble title I can find. Replace if you have anything better.

Places:
[=] La Rochelle, Tristainia - port city before Saito and co. left for Albion.
[=] Marie Grande - the Tristainian ship that took Saito and co. to Albion.
[=] Scarborough, Albion - the Albionian port that Saito and co. land on
[=] Newcastle, Albion - site of the final battle for Volume 2

Note: I didn't put on [list] tags. That was intentional.

[EDIT]: Mary -> Marie. Sounds more French = Tristainian.

I took that from Wikipedia. I don't know which sounds more French.

Well the pronunciation is "Wa-ru-do" so I think makes more sense as Waldo.

I used Wald. I took the name from some fansub in the anime.

Hence I'm changing every 'Wald' and its variations to 'Wardes' on sight. I think a group of griffin riders is called 'Griffin Knights', where both words start with capital letter; so I'll fix 'Griffin knight(-s)' as well.

Anyway thanks for the update.

枢機卿 マザリーニ (or マザラン) is Cardinal Mazarin. See his Wikipedia entry (and its Japanese version). I'll fix this in all available scripts of ZnT vol.2.
Most part of ZnT names can be found in d'Artagnan romances (Wikipedia) by Alexandre Dumas, père. I strongly recommend these historical novels to every ZnT translator/editor - they are very interesting by themselves as well.

ehm, well, I'm German =D So, since Kirche's name (meaning "church") is German (well, Germania is mentioned in ZnT), I guess that it could also be "Wald". It means "forest". ^^ But, I don't really know... I think it's difficult to tell from their pronounciation in the anime as well...

humm...didn't no "kirche" meant church in German, but then again she is from Germania :p

but on the other hand, Wald/Warude is from the French sounding country, you would think he at leased have a French sounding name then a German one?

unless he has Germania roots? but then his surname would be Germania wouldn't it?

You're right, I thought the same thing! =D As I've said: it might be possible since the name would have a meaning / a German translation. But I really don't know. =3

The only viscount that i've found with something who sounded like "Waldo" is Vicount Walden.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquess_of_Tweeddale

Lord Tweeddale holds the subsidiary titles of Earl of Tweeddale (created 1646), Earl of Gifford (1694), Viscount of Walden (1694)...


It's the same period than "Louise Françoise de La Baume Le Blanc, duchesse de La Vallière" (1644-1710) and "Cardinal Mazarin" (1602-1661)

As far as I recall, eldest son of a count inherits the title from his father. Until then his title is viscount ("vice-count"). Hence, I don't see any problems mixing Japanese ZnT's "Viscount WARUDO" with Dumas' "Count de Wardes" into "Viscount Wardes". After all, this name is relatively well-known, especially when compared to Vicount Walden.

Interesting link...
