Welcome to suta-raito! We're celebrating our 3rd birthday this year, and this news ticker was used on the first year Suta-Raito was born, so for the celebration...it...has...RETURNED! Annoying-ness: I'm gonna talk like Kenshin! That I am! Usually I don't watch Kenshin, that I don't...but I managed to catch it the other day on TV, that I did. Of course, it was the sad episode where he left everyone...that it was...*hisssss*... --~**~-- Is there an episode of Pokemon that team rocket isn't in? --~**~-- *runs around chasing Kuitsuku* Hey if you like to draw then you should check out suta-raito's oekakis! --~**~-- It has occured to me that a lot of people really do read this. So I'll keep typing meaningless stuff to amuse you all. -^^- --~**~-- I want a cookie. >3>....And a muffin. A cookie muffin.       ...with blueberries... --~**~-- Everything above this (well, mostly) was on the ticker 2 years ago! Oh the memories. And now, for some new stuff! --~**~-- If you want to contact me, but you can't figure out how...try clicking on the contact page. xD --~**~-- You're still reading this? --~**~-- Most people who read the word "yawning" will yawn.        ...you know you want to... --~**~--            HA! I bet you thought it was ending. NEVER!! --~**~-- Worms have been known to taste like bacon. o-o I wouldn't go munching on them for breakfast though.      Unless...you want to... --~**~-- Have a Neopets account? My username is kontinasu, go ahead and look me up! =3 --~**~-- Did you know that dolphins nap with one eye open? o.o That'd be a good skill for school. --~**~-- Ticky ticker ticky ticker.... --~**~-- On Suta-Raito's 2nd birthday, the counter was at 2 million visits. This year is our 3rd birthday, and the counter is at 8 million visits. =3 --~**~-- Well I'm going to end this now so I can draw some pictures. ^-^ Thanks for taking the time to read it, and thanks for visiting Suta-Raito!

Naruto Name Pronunciations!

English dubs tend to pronounce names a bit off from the original Japanese versions. I'm not japanese and I'm not trying to show off my knowledge of the language, because I honestly haven't got the patience to learn their language. ^-^; I've just been getting really confused between names of the Japanese and English versions of the show. I figured that other people might be having this problem as well, so here are their names taken from the Japanese version of the show.

Also, the Japanese sound their R's more as the letter D, but it's not as bold as the English dubs have been saying. For example, Sakura's name in Japanese has been said as Sakurda, really fast. The english dub says, slowly and more bold, SakuDa. For the sake of not getting people confused, the D are R's in English. Sakura should really be said as Sakura in English, not SakuDa. Japanese and English have different letter pronunciations, and they should be respected in each language. [I suppose that's just my two cents though. =3]
These can all be debatable, and I'm sure that if you put 5 major fans of Naruto in an empty room to discuss this, there will be many different opinions on how to pronounce everything. Honestly, the reason I'm making this page is because I couldn't find any websites that gave the japanese pronunciations. If you'd like to tell me better pronunciations, go ahead. I won't be mad, and I'll probably change these if yours sound more accurate. ^-^

First name, then last.
I believe in Japanese, the last name is said first, but I'm just going to post the names as we do most often in English.

Underlined parts are emphasized more in the names.
For example, the English dub says Nah-roo-toe, but the correct way to say it is Nah-roo-toe. There are some parts I didn't emphasize because I didn't think it was much of an issue, but if anybody has trouble, please don't be afraid to e-mail me. ^-^

Naruto Uzumaki:
Nah-roo-toe Oo-zoo-mah-key

Sasuke Uchiha:
Sauce-kay Oo-chi-ha

Sakura Haruno:
Sah-koo-rah Ha-roo-no

Kakashi Hatake:
Kah-ka-shi Ha-tah-kay (although there has been much confusion to whether it's Kaka-shi or Kah-kashi, Naruto says Kah-ka-shi)

Ino Yamanaka:
Ee-no Ya-mah-na-ka

Shikamaru Nara:
Shee-ka-mah-roo Nah-ra

Chouji Akimichi:
Chew-jey Ah-key-me-chi

Iruka Umuino:
Ee-roo-kah Oo-moo-ee-no

Kiba Inuzuka:
Key-bah Ee-new-zoo-ka




If you know any names that I don't have on here (I know there are a lot), go ahead and send them in by clicking here. If I pronounced any wrong, please tell me. I'm trying my best and using the actual Japanese show as a reference, but I could still be off. ^-^; I'd LOVE your help with this! =3
