Name meaning

I know his English name means eerie, spooky, alien, or supernatural. However, I don't know much about Japanese, so I don't know that meaning, and no other foreign names are listed. Anyone willing to pursue this topic any further? --AndyPKMN 17:11, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

You can always find foreign names here: [1]. They are:
  • Japanese: ナミキ Namiki
  • French: Edern
  • German: Eldrich
  • Italian: Elfio
  • Spanish: Ruperto
  • Korean: 도란 Doran

Their meaning are not as clear as his English one, but one can always give a try. Namiki could came from 波 nami (wave). Edern from dernier, last. Elfio from elfo, elf. Ruperto from repelús, inexplicable fear. But these are just educated guesses. --Siegfried 20:23, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
