In fanfiction especially, many people like to use the human names. I also noticed that many people use the wrong names, pronounce these names wrong, don’t know how to pronounce them at all (I’m looking at you Poland), or are just confused on human names in general. So here is a list of all the names officially confirmed in Hetalia. I will make another post for unofficial names another time. If you want something added or think I forgot something, feel free to tell me. NOTE: No nyotalia names are officially confirmed by Himaruya.
Character: Name: Pronunciation: Misconceptions: Extra info:
Character: Italy Veneziano Name: Feliciano Vargas Pronunciation: Fe-lee-chya-no Misconceptions: Many pronounce it as Fe-lee-see-a-no. Extra info: Vargas is actually a Spanish surname, but comes from Alberto Vargas, an Italian Artist.
Character: Germany Name: Ludwig Pronunciation: Lood-veeg Misconceptions: His last name is not Bielschmidt. That is Prussia’s last name. He was never given a cannon last name. Extra info:
Character: Japan Name: Kiku Honda (本田菊) Pronunciation: Kee-koo Honda (Think of the car) Misconceptions: Extra info: Eastern order is Honda Kiku.
Character: England Name: Arthur Kirkland Pronunciation: Ar-thur Kerk-land Misconceptions: Extra info:
Character: France Name: Francis Bonnefoy Pronunciation: Fron-cees Bon-ne-fwah Misconceptions: foy is another spelling for foi. Extra info: An alternative for his first name is François (Fron-swah)
Character: America Name: Alfred F. Jones Pronunciation: (Most of you are American so I think you know how to pronounce this) Misconceptions: Extra info: The F stands for Franklin, Foster, or Fucking. It is unconfirmed which.
Character: Russia Name: Ivan Braginsky (Иван Брагинский) Pronunciation: ee-vahn brag-in-skee Misconceptions: This name is mispronounced as Eye-van constantly. Braginski is an incorrect spelling, and is actually a Polish name. Extra info: Vanya (Vahn-yah) can be used as a nickname, for it is often used in Russia.
Character: China Name: Yao Wang (王耀, Yào Wáng) Pronunciation: Yao Wong Misconceptions: No, his last name is not pronounced the same way the slang term for penis is. Extra info: Eastern order is Wang Yao.
Character: Austria Name: Roderich Edelstein Pronunciation: Road-air-risch Ay-dehl-stine Misconceptions: Extra info: Edelstein is commonly found among Jewish families in Austria.
Character: Belarus Name: Natalya Arlovskaya (Belarussian: Наталля Арлоўская. Russian:Наталья Арловская) Pronunciation: Nah-tahl-yah Ahr-lohv-ska-ya Misconceptions: Extra info: Natalia is a western variation, but the Belarusian language would spell it as Natalya. (Technically, her name has 2 Ls in it so it should be Natallya, but I suggest using Natalya)
Character: Canada Name: Matthew Williams Pronunciation: (Most of the fan base knows how to pronounce this) Misconceptions: Extra info:
Character: Egypt Name: Gupta Muhammad Hassan (غوبتا محمد حسن) Pronunciation: ghoob-ta mu-ham-med Hah-sahn (accent the H) Misconceptions: Extra info: Gupta is an Indian name. There is also no P in the Arabic language. (Hima fuck up counter: 1.5)
Character: Estonia Name: Eduard von Bock Pronunciation: Edward von Bahk Misconceptions: Extra info: von Bock is actually a German last name (Hima fuck up counter: 2.5)
Character: Finland Name: Tino Väinämöinen Pronunciation: Tee-no Vine-uh-moi-nen Misconceptions: Extra info: Tino is rarely used in Finland. Many use Timo instead. (Hima fuck up counter: 3.5)
Character: Greece Name: Heracles Karpusi (Greek: Ηρακλής Καρπούζης or Iraklis Karpuzis) Pronunciation: Hair-a-kleez Kar-poo-zeez Misconceptions: Extra info: Karpusi is not a real Greek last name. It is the Greek word for watermelon. (Hima fuck up counter: 4.5)
Character: Hungary Name: Erzsébet Héderváry Pronunciation: Air-zee-bet Hay-dair-vah-ree Misconceptions: Extra info: This is a name that is said to have a romanji dispute. Elizabeta, Elizaveta, Elizabeth, and Erzsébet are all possible spellings. But recent findings from Hungarian followers have told me it is Erzsébet. Eastern Order is Héderváry Erzsébet.
Character: Latvia Name: Raivis Galante Pronunciation: Ray-vis Gah-lahn-tay Misconceptions: Extra info: Galante is an Italian surname, however, this last name comes from a Latvian opera singer. (so I can only give a half point. HFUC: 5)
Character: Liechtenstein Name: Erika Vogel Pronunciation: Air-ih-ka Voh-gel Misconceptions: Lilli Zwingili is often to be mistaken for her real name. Extra info: While it was not official, all the other suggested first names were removed later…So that left Erika Vogel.
Character: Lithuania Name: Tolys Laurinaitis Pronunciation: Toh-lees Lor-in-eye-tis Misconceptions: The most disputed romanji mistranslation ever. Since the L is nonexistant in the Japanese language, many think his name is Toris. Toris isn’t a real name…anywhere. It is a dog name though. Tolys, however, is a real Lithuanian name. I believe it was just lost in translation. Extra info: Oh boy…glad that’s over. (Oh no Poland’s next…)
Character: Prussia Name: Gilbert Beilschmidt Pronunciation: Gill-bert Bile-shmitt Misconceptions: Extra info: In German, when 2 vowels are next to each other, the second vowel is pronounced (like my last name).
Character: Italy Romano Name: Lovino Vargas Pronunciation: Loh-veen-oh Misconceptions: Extra info: Lovino is not an Italian first name. It is a last name. Romano actually is a first name in Italy. (HFUC: 6)
Character: Sealand Name: Peter Kirkland Pronunciation: … Misconceptions: Extra info:
Character: South Korea Name: Yong Soo Im (임용수) Pronunciation: (as spelled) Misconceptions: Extra info: When addressing him on a first name basis, use Yong Soo. Eastern Order: Im Yong Soo
Character: Spain Name: Antonio Fernández Carriedo Pronunciation: An-toh-nee-oh Fer-nan-dez Cah-ree-ed-o Misconceptions: Many are confused if his first surname is Fernandez or Hernandez. Fernandez is the most reliable. Extra info:
Character: Sweden Name: Berwald Oxenstierna Pronunciation: Ber-vald Ohks-en-stjærn-a Misconceptions: Extra info:
Character: Switzerland Name: Basch Zwingli Pronunciation: Bahsh Zveen-gee-lee Misconceptions: Many often use Vash, however, Basch has a more historical signifigance. But either is acceptable to use. Extra info:
Character: Turkey Name: Sadık Adnan Pronunciation: Sah-dick Ahd-nahn Misconceptions: When spelling his name, never use the englise “i”. Always use the Turkish “ı” Extra info: Sadık is actually a Turkish surname rather than a first name. (HFUC: 7)
If there’s any pronunciation I got wrong, please tell me. I would really appreciate it.
On Friday night, Cece had the house to herself. Her family had gone to see Jeff’s parents and though she’d been invited along, she didn’t want to go. She always felt out of place around them, as if she were trying to wedge herself into something she wasn’t and never really would be a part of.
Taking advantage of her time alone, she queued up a romantic comedy on Netflix and settled into the couch with a bowl of popcorn. But the opening credits hadn’t even finished rolling before the house phone began to ring.
She groaned, grabbing the remote and pausing her film. She nearly let it go to voicemail – after all, the only people who called on the landline anymore were telemarketing companies – but something in her couldn’t ignore it.
When she saw an unfamiliar Franklin Foster on the Caller I.D., she frowned and offered a wary, “Hello?”

I’ve decided to add two more celebs to the blog and their characters. That will take it up to 22 and that is all I will accept requests for. I can’t update the celebrity/character list right now but I will in the morning. Also I’ve decided that I won’t post 22 imagines every day, but will post whenever I have requests just as long as they are for the celebs or their characters.
The people I’m adding are;
Robert Downey Jr
Tony Stark from Iron Man/The Avengers
Sherlock Holmes from Sherlock Holmes
Peter Highman from Due Date
Steve Lopez from The Soloist
Captain James T Kirk from Star Trek (reboot)
Steve Trevor from Wonder Woman
Jake Hardin from Just My Luck
Franklin Foster from This Means War
I'm gonna be a bitch and anonymously correct that Himaruya stated that the F in Alfred F. Jones could stand for either Franklin, Foster, or F**k. 8DDDDD Based on the actors in the latest American movies he's watched shouting it so often.

Only not everything is as it seems. There is a mystery surrounding Tony, surrounding Stark Solutions as a whole, and Steve is just unfortunate enough to get tangled up in it.
A/N: DONE. If you’ve been waiting to read this fic, here you go. FINISHED. And I recommend grabbing the download if you want to read it later, because I do plan on taking this down ~eventually~ to try and get it published as an original work.
