This is the policy for the naming of Ao no Exorcist Wiki articles, characters, places, abilities, 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.
In most instances, this wiki uses character names from the official ViZ volumes. In general there is usually no dispute about this, but in instances where a double vowel is blatantly translated by ViZ, a macron may be used to substitute the redundancy.
Except in the case of blatant nicknames, if a character's legitimate alias is what they are most frequently referred to as, then they will have that legitimate alias as their article name. Mephisto Pheles, for example, is referred to by that name, rather than his true name, Samael, for reasons just stated.
If possible, due to the nature of several characters using techniques that translate to a language other than English, the names of techniques will almost always be from the ViZ translation to ensure correctness.
Use of Names
In articles we refer to the character by their primary names, not nicknames. For example, Lewin Light, who is almost always referred to as Lightning, is to be called Lewin in all articles he appears in, not Lightning.
