    Default Syaoran or Shaoran?

    Well, I'm a really big fan of Cardcaptor Sakura since I was like 12 and I kept wondering about this question. Is it Syaoran or Shaoran? Because when I watch the anime version of series it's spelled "Syaoran". But then when I watch Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2 the subtitles are spelled "Shaoran" x__x please help me!

    I was wondering that too.

    In Japanese Shaoran/Syaoran would be spelled as シャオラン which in english could be spelled as Shaoran or Syaoran too. But IMO Shaoran would be more fitting. *sorry for the confusing reply. My head's in different places right nao.*

    No matter how much you don't like it, what's official is official. his name is officially romanized as "Syaoran", so we should all go with that.

    Surely you know he's Chinese, and his Chinese name, 小狼 (little wolf), is pronounced "xiaolang". shao and xiao are two different sounds in Chinese, so Shaoran would not be a good spelling if you wanna trace back to the origin of his name.

    Always thought CLAMP had named Shaoran in Cardcaptor Sakura, and then just Syaoran in TRC. Hmm? D:

    In both Card Captor Sakura, and the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, his name is Syaoran. At least, that's the most common way to spell it.

    Syaoran is pronounced
    sigh orin (where "orin" is pronounced like the words "or" and "in" being said together, with the mouth immediately starting on the word "in" after it finishes the word "or", and may sound like a combination of "or" and "run" instead, depending on your exact pronunciation)

    Shaoran is pronounced
    Shou ron (where the ou is pronounced the same as in "ouch", and the o in "ron" is pronounced the same as in "hot")

    Xiaolang is pronounced
    Zhou lang (where "zh" is pronounced like "sh" but with a buzz in the sound, just like the difference between "s" and "z", and the "a" in "lang" is pronounced same as it is in the word "language")


    These are 3 distinct names (not 3 different spellings of the same name), because they have 3 separate pronunciations.

    Only ONE of these is the proper English spelling of his actual name. The others are mistaken outcomes from companies that do translations on the cheap, like 4KidsTV, and most other companies that Americanize anime for kids to watch here in the US under the false assumption that all anime is meant for kids, and also under the false assumption that kids will only watch it if it has been Americanized so strongly that it no longer resembles its original form.

    And I'm trying to figure out what the REAL correct English spelling of his name is. Can someone tell me?

    As someone who reads subtitles often, they can often be wrong. As for the question, officially it's syaoran in japanese. But in the english versions, like many english things they RENAMED him. Probably since most kids would not know how to pronounce syaoran as it's not a spellings kids encounter often. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syaoran_Li#Syaoran_Li while both are correct, syaoran is the more correct term imo as it was the original spelling before america got ahold of the series.

    It's like princess tutu. Ahiru's name translates into duck. For some reason during the dub they decided to translate her name to it's english meaning duck.. so they run around calling ahiru duck and it's the most awkward thing ever.
