Tower of Heaven and Jellal are the approved official spellings.

It's your scanlations that are "incorrect"

Technically speaking, it's: the official english translitteration of Jeraaru is Jellal.

Fan translations of the name have used Gerard because early on, someone noticed that Jeraaru is how Gerard is written when translated from French to Japanese. Why Mashima apparently wanted it to be translated as Jellal is a matter of speculation.

Personal taste.
I loved the name Gerard, but Jellal feels like gelatin, so it's making me laugh uncontrollably, instead of feeling fear or similar...

Understood.
Thank you for the explanation.
Did I ever say that I hate the "official" things?

I agree for the translations, but the translitterations are an entirely different matter.

It's a famous classic piece (i've only been awake a few minutes and the name of it has escaped me, if anyone knows it please say) that's been used quite a number of times for her, so yeah i'd say so.

As for Lucy, Erza and Juvia in bikini's, which of them were peoples favorites?

I thought Lucy was the hottie of the show. But after seeing Erza in her bikini and her SHAZZAM supermodel figure, Erza is miles ahead of Lucy in terms of beauty and hotness.

Pfft, don't listen to what those people from Fairy Tail say she has plenty of sex appeal.

I'd say Lucy looked the best in the bikini (i have such a soft spot for her), though i seriously can't blame anyone for choosing Erza, just going by that scene on the balcony.

Jellal? I always saw it being written Gerard everywhere, it is the first time I stumble on it.

ah so I wasn't wrong thinking it was familar, still can't quite place it tho.
It's just like with the song Yui is playing at the start of the 1st ep of 2nd season of K-ON!, I was sure I heard it before but just couldn't place it and it was driving me crazy!

I think I'd have to agree that Lucy looked the best, I too have that soft spot for her even tho I like some of the other girls more, much like I do for Nami in One Piece even tho I like Robin and Hancock more.

p.s Lucy bondage is (b^_^)b

It's the same as translating Gray to Gurei, Lucy to Ruci, etc. Jellal just doesn't seem...iunno, like an actual name o_0

Lucy will probably have more moments to show off, but it looks like Erza's peace of mind won't be coming back for a while, and since armor is her casual choice of garment anyway...

Look, it's not translating. It's taking the english spellings of the names given to me by the author/publishing company. There's no choice in the matter.

Call it a "bad decision by the author" if you want to.

Sounds like we both have the same taste in females, because Nami is easily my favorite one from One Piece.

I know, can't blame anyone else...R+V translations suffer a lot too, can't help it.

Yeah I have to agree with you. Thought as well that Lucy looked the best though wouldn't say anything negative about Erza or Juvia. Think overall I still like Lucy the most in the series though there are some nice female characters in the series.

Honestly I'd go with the bad decision by the author option then. I mean damn that just looks bad in terms of a name. Sounds closer to some kind of food product than a person .
