Studio 54 again  
Okay, everybody. Remember this?

Set at "Studio 54", a discothèque in New York that captivated celebrities all over the world from the latter half of the 1970s to the 1980s. A musical production about a runaway papparazzo following a scandal and his target, an up-and-coming actress, who connect with each other after a certain incident. Holy Ashley is a freelance journalist who supplies "scoop" photos and gossip articles to tabloids and evening magazines. One night, a party is held at Studio 54 celebrating the release of rock star Z-Boy's new album. Holy gets an exclusive story on the up-and-coming actress Giselle Morgan, who is rumored to be Z-Boy's lover. But Z-Boy's agency interferes with the article being published. Holy needs money -- to give back to the orphanage where he was raised. Desperate, he chases after the pair and gets involved in an incident...

What should be the name of Kiriyan's character?

Holy Ashley
Holly Ashley
Hoary Ashley
Something else which I will suggest in a comment

If it can't be something sensible like Harry, it's got to be Holly. Holy and Hoary are too bizarre.

I guess I'm the only one who's amused enough by the idea to want to make it "Holy". ^_^;;;

I suppose if somehow ... a light came from the sky at the exact moment of his birth or something, his mother might name him Holy...
Julie: alice ed disguisewao_wao on November 3rd, 2010 03:45 am (UTC)
I still maintain it could be an assumed name / derisive nickname ;)

That's a good point. It could be something like "Holy Roller".

I'd go for Holy, I don't find it that much weirder than some other names they've come up with.

I read Hoary as "whore-y"... so... whatever this is (admittedly I didn't really read through this post), I hope the character does NOT get named Hoary.

Well, that IS how it's pronounced, although it just means "old", but admittedly I wrote it basically as a joke third option.

The reason for this poll is Japanese renderings of foreign names can be really unlikely / totally implausible sometimes :X

I guess as English is not my mother languange, I can't really help here... but as soon as I read this, I had to think of Touko's 'Joy Bee' as one of the best proves that Takarazuka names don't need to make sense (or like to make sense in a way they don't mean to :P).
Julie: alice samantha glarewao_wao on November 3rd, 2010 06:52 pm (UTC)
...Or make sense in one way ("my name means 'happiness!') but not in another (IT'S A GIRL'S NAME DX)

Using the argument "it doesn't need to make sense", *I* would have made it "Holy", but... Stupid majority vote :P
Es ist Zeit zu Leben.violet_tango on November 3rd, 2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
When I hear that name, I always have to think of an extremly happy little bee. And sometimes of Touko in a bee costume.

Btw, the last name of Kaname's character in Gentleman 'フォーリー' is pretty close to Kiriyan's name here, and the original romaji version is 'Foley'.
Julie: alice dorothy naughtywao_wao on November 3rd, 2010 08:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah lol, I should have put "Holey" as an option too XDD
Es ist Zeit zu Leben.: Kaname // pretty please with cream?violet_tango on November 3rd, 2010 08:39 pm (UTC)
How about 'Hurray'? xD

By the way, have very stupid, but happy music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9sz9QzsWXc Me posting this here doesn't make sense, but the song is so awfully obstrusive. *dances through the room*

^_^;; You don't know how many times I've wanted to consult with people on name romanizations instead of just putting whatever my feeble brain comes up with on the wiki...
tsuki_in_sora on November 5th, 2010 06:00 am (UTC)
I'd go for Holly. Holy and definitely Hoary don't click for me ^^;;

Not that Holly does, I mean it's a girl's name, but seeing Touko's last role was JOY Bee, I suppose it's not impossible ;)
