Hiya! I was the one who translated the comic into Mandarin Chinese~

For the names in this comic I've used words that are close approximations of the English sounds.

Koko's name isn't revealed here, but it would be written as "可可". It doesn't really have a meaning, but I've seen most other characters with the name Koko translated this way. XD

Fahle is written as ”华乐“. "华"is a word with many meanings, but as an adjective it means magnificent or splendid. "乐" means joy.

...I just realized Nazak's name could be translated as "娜莎珂" instead of "纳莎克", oops. >.< "娜莎珂" uses letters that are used in feminine name translations, "纳莎克" is a lot more of a direct translation of each of the syllables.

Tagging Ahkward for this comment since they wanted to ask about the names. XD If you want, I could switch out Nazak's name with the other translation!

Aha you did a good job with Fahle's name! It roughly translates to "good life" or "happy life". It can also mean strength in an off sort of way, not a direct translation. So that one worked out perfectly! XD

For Koko, it's short for "Kokopelu" and basically means "off the footpath" since that is where Fahle found him as an egg. So with him, I think what you have will be fine. I like that it is consistent with other characters of a similar name. Easier to understand ouo

For NAzak, hng, I forget what I made hers mean, but I'm fine with what you chose. I'm not gonna worry about hers. When it comes to otehr characters like Aros, Tuhk and Ahk/ahklut, then we'll have to be a bit more picky, but for now these are fine. Thanks for the information!

I hadn't asked, XD I kinda trusted her to pick something good. I suppose I should ask. lol

Probably since, for Chinese, it's a literal word (or collection of words) and could be used as a good plot device :)

yeah it could

I'll have to talk to my translator about it. I forgot their naming system actually has logic to it. XD
