What exactly is his name? Is it Bakyll, Bakel or Baqel? Derax PaganiTartaros 15:11, October 10, 2015 (UTC)

Panda: Bakyll
Steam: Baqel
Crunchy/Us: Bakel
Chaos: Baquel

We can start a name vote but I don't see the need. I like Bakel. It's simple and phonetic, and it makes sense. -kyll sounds like kill. -qel is okay-ish, as q by itself makes the k sound, but then why not use the letter k? -quel makes the typical q sound ("kwuh" because of the qu together), so I don't like it very much.

I dig Baquel

Oi vay XD To be honest, seeing as how he, Kareem and Ajeel seem to have *ahem* Arabic themes about their design and names, Baqel would make more sense to me than Bakel, but as you say Wrath; phonetically they sound identical so it may not need changed? Derax PaganiTartaros 15:20, October 10, 2015 (UTC)

Also Baqel with a "q" looks like the word bagel. :'D

Just for the formality..

  1. Support Support - I can't be the only person who thinks "Bakel" looks like really bad Engrish. This is the best option by far. Bakyll looks ridiculous and I second Wrath's assertion that Baqel looks like Bagel. >_> Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben20:47,10/10/2015
  2. Support Support - I agree with Rai's point on the broken english. Plus, the que in Baquel can still be read as Ba-kell, like how we have Warrod Sequen. :Umnei:Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 21:17, October 10, 2015 (UTC)
  3. Support Support - Actually, now that I think about it, I prefer this one. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 21:32,10/10/2015
  4. Support Support - the one right below this option looks weird without the q.Lyra (no background)Animaltamer7Lyra Key05:40, October 11, 2015 (UTC)
  5. Support Support - Bagel not winning, and for some reason I like the q being in his name NcduruRavens wallpaper (2)01:01,10/13/2015

  1. Support Support - I don't see the need to be fancy with a tertiary character. >_>

  2. Support Support - Best option on the list. LumintheLord of Light~ 17:26,10/10/2015

Name Update

I personally think his name means Baker or Bakir because with the Arabic theme of the Ajeel squad(and his associate Kareem having an arabic name) I think his name might be Baker or Bakir which is an Arabic name unlike Bakel. Also both Bakir and Kareem are one The 99 holy names of Allah. Lastly according to the trivia his name was originally written in Japanese as Bakeru (バケル),Citadel2 (talk) 00:34, August 14, 2019 (UTC)JadeKade

Keep in mind the voting was made in 2015 so new infos about his name was not revealed yet but his name is actually what it is according to the reference it was confirm in the official Fairy Tail Volume 53 Translation Notes and that's it, anything added more than that would be speculation.
