This is the policy for the naming of Fairy Tail Wiki articles, characters, places, Magic, and techniques.
There are a few small important notes in the naming policy that applies to all categories of names rather than just a specific group.
Throughout this wiki, all names are spelled the way they are found in the Kodansha Manga volumes (the North American distributors of Fairy Tail), and previously Del Rey Manga Volumes. These names are official, as a note stated within the volumes explained, that Hiro Mashima provided the spellings for them. If certain names have not yet been released, then scanslation names are used. All scanslation names will be replaced once Kodansha has released the volumes with the official names in them.
- Note: As of Volume 18, this note no longer appears in the Kodansha volumes, as such, the names provided by Kodansha will not necessarily be used on this site.
The names for all Magic abilities and techniques are also spelled the way they are found in Kodansha's Manga Volumes.
Use of names
In articles we refer to the character by a single primary name, aliases are not used unless relevant to the context of the paragraph. (ie: We use Mirajane not Mira)
Edolas characters are not to be called Edo-anything. In their character pages use their names, not fan names. For example in Edolas Mirajane's page, we use Mirajane, not Edo-Mirajane or Edolas-Mirajane.
We also list all the versions of a name. English, Kanji, Romaji, and aliases are listed in their article, and all of those, as well as some misspellings or shortened names are redirected.
