I disregard official names in this case since it's clear the author intends to use proper English names but they come out with funky transliterations due to linguistic differences.

Arnette: Anette

Ganessa: Vanessa

Satella: Stella

Cassie: Cathy

Translators should balance transliterations with the author's obvious intent. I mean, on his blog he spells it "Satelaser".

It's odd how inconsistently this is applied, by the way. You never see someone transliterating "Arthur" as "Assah" just because that's how they pronounce it, why so for other names?
