But if the baby didn't exist, or the fall incident didn't happen (i.e. the baby was in fact Jessica or something), then Yasu can't possibly be that child (though Yasu could still exist and merely think she is), and neither can L[y/i/e]on. So it would wind up denying his existence at least.
About that, it actually took quite a lot of prodding from Lambda while she was on the phone before Natsuhi took the bait and recalled what the man from 19 years ago was actually referring to, if you remember.

It could just be simple repression.

Was busy for quite a while.
07th expansion confirmed that the official romaji is Lion. We have changed things accordingly.
Amusingly, they weren't sure how to spell correctly Will's full name, so we helped them, but it was the only character they asked a help from us.

As we suspected: Clair Vaux Bernardus, originally from Bernard de Clairvaux.

By the way, even if the choice of katakana was weird, Beatrice's last name is unsurprisingly Castiglioni, not Castillioni as the pronunciation suggests.

Oh yeah! XD

I always thought it was Castiglioni, it sounds a lot better. I guess it's difficult for a non italian to understand how to pronounce the "gl" sound but the closest transliteration you can make in katakana is exactly as Ryuukishi wrote it. And I guess he took the surname from here:

Ah, a gender-neutral spelling, just as I thought : D. (one of my reasons for preferring that and, well, admittedly moreso Lyon over Leon)

...though hopefully there'll be some kind of pronunciation note because we all know what people are going to say at first .

Ah, that's what I suspected. Thanks for finding out for us early.

Yes, that is interesting that they were not sure about that.

How did they... mess up "Willard H. Wright?" I mean, it's literally a real person's name! And they didn't mess up Dlanor and that was a name all scrambled up!

What's with 1974? °°

anyway Kinzo should have been around 70 years old, but there's no real certainty about his age.

As someone who is named Willard Wright in real life(that's one of the reasons I began to read Umineko to be honest ) I can attest that people misspell Willard a lot. So much that I gave up on having them spell it correctly and just ask to be called Will.

What? Seriously? Is that a coincidence or your parents really love mystery novels?

...I honestly can't figure out what's there to misspell. O_o Mispronounce, possibly, misspell?...

I'm honestly not sure. His data folder is WIL so unlike some of the other more creative romanization prospects, he seems fully on the up-and-up, which is why I figured they had him locked down. Go figure.

Maybe the problem wasn't "Willard" but "Wright" since ライト can also be romanized "Right" or "Light".

I wonder why they didn't simply check the wiki

Boo... that was the shitty version. In fact, Lion is not even a name. Well, nor is Battler. Oh well, the boobs are still fake. So, I shouldn't care about a name.
