Aswald, Asward, Aswad or Asuwado?

I know there was a poll to which do you like シュバルツ to be translated. This time I would like to ask you about アスワド.

I think Aswald has been seen the most frequently in this forum, next Asward. I'm not sure the difference or the nuance between them, because I'm not a native English speaker.

But there is a consensus of almost all 2ch people in My Otome threads that アスワド is Aswad, because Aswad means black in Arabic, as Schwarz in German.

ASWAD: Male Arabic/Arabian and Egyptian name meaning "black"

For the reference, both Doremi and SS use Aswad.

Hum for next reference, French Teams use Asward.
In French, It's means Noir, For me, Black...

Since Megami magazine used Aswad, most likely that's the correct.

But フロリンス (furorinsu) and カルデア (karudea) stiil don't have official romanization...

I'm ok with first three. Though I'm used to Aswald, so voted for it.

Aswad sounds funny in plain english. Aswald gives the people some dignity.

You get used Aswad; it sounds less funny when the first A is pronounced as a long A. Sounded like "ass wad", i.e. "a wad of ass" to me at first.

after serious contemplation i have reached the conclusion that the correct spelling is not "asuwado" but "ass waddle." it is shocking - SHOCKING - that none in this thread have come to the same conclusion.

I usually prefer to use Aswardo ... since it sounds closest to the way they say it but I guess Aswad is good.

I don't think pronouncing the A longer would help would it? I still can't do it without emphasising the S... Now it sounds like AAAAAAArrrSSSSSSSSSSSSe wipe.

I think they are ass-kickers as well Wondering if Sunrise intend this as another play-on-words. Funny people.

Look, Starks! Plenty of ideas here for your next parody...

Needless to say, the community as a whole hated me for depicting Erstin as a slutty, panty-wetting, loli, who descended from a "ho" family.

Well you single handedly spoiled Erstin's death for me haha. I wasn't so affected by her death because I watched it first on your parody. Nah. Never liked her in the first place. Okay off topic.
