I never really understood why people translated a name that's pronounced "Sharuru" into "Carla."

it's from an official glossary given to QB, the translator responsible, if I'm not wrong.

Yup, it's just the official word from the publishers or producers or something.

This being from the same sub that translated Ur's name as "Ul" and Grandeeney's name as "Grandine", even after the publishers of which you speak stated otherwise?

It might even actually be "Charles" (the French pronunciation, of course, with a silent "s"), because in the opening sequence of the OVA, it spells out her name as such.

It's weird how many things change once the manga is released in English by Kodansha, like when they revealed that Juvia's surname is "Lockser" instead of "Loxar," "Fried's" name is actually "Freed," and "Bixlow" is "Bickslow." It's probably because people grow so accustomed to fan translations that they take them as official translations, since they're so much more accessible to everyone. There has been more than one account of people going to Wikipedia and changing Ur's name to "Ul" just because her daughter Ultear was named after her being the tears of her mother (and no, that's not a manga spoiler; it was stated clearly by Siegrain/Jellal in episode 18, where Ultear was revealed to be Ur's daughter in the first place). And don't get me started on Jellal/Gerard...

Of course, this brings up the fact that, in the first season, there were instances of Erza's name being spelled "Elsa" or "Elza." Well, I believe in one of those episodes, the scene was edited to spell her name as "Erza" (episode 10, where you can see Erza's name written on that tally board where she and Natsu are fighting). At least, it was edited when I checked out the episode uploaded by Funimation, so maybe the same was done for the home release in Japan. But I can't say for sure.

What Mashima was originally intended was "Charles". Read back through this thread to the start of the Oricon Seis arc, and you can see the "WTF Charles is a guys name! That's so stupid!" type reactions that provoked due to the minor detail that in English, Charles is pretty much exclusively a male name. Seeing as Quarkboy, the translator for Crunchyroll's Fairy Tail subs (aka, the official anime subs) reads these forums, said reaction was relayed, with the eventually result being a change to Carla.

Actually, the thing with Ul/Ur is because IIRC, there's a mismatch between the Crunchyroll subs, and the Del Rey/Kodansha manga translation. William Flannagan, the translator for the manga used Ur, and Quarkboy used Ul. Given the relationship between Ul and Ultear, and that Ultear's name is supposed to be derived from Ul's, I suspect that the manga's use of Ur is an error that crept into the whole process, and would not be surprised to see it use Ul the next time her name comes up.

This episode only proves how useless Lucy really is. That wool attack would have been completely useless if Bickslow had fought properly.

Well actually Dist, in the manga version of this fight, she's not as useless as you may think.

Talk about taking an exaggerated view point. Lucy is having to fight without her ace which is a serious handicap. It'd be like having Natsu disallowed from using his roar. Besides since the fight was thrown how can we possibly guess at how ineffective the wool attack would have been? The cave doesn't give Bickslow nearly as much open space as the last time he and Lucy fought, not to mention he doesn't have much in terms of replacements for his dolls. Just because Freed and Bickslow agreed to throw the fight before it got started doesn't give anything to judge Lucy or Cana's abilities from.
