I did this doodle yesterday and went ahead and followed it through. Ronan’s parents are white american and Japanese, but his mother didn’t want to name him anything weird because she wanted him to fit in. His father (who was that type of Irish descent person in America that kind of thinks he’s actually Irish), may or may not have only chose the Irish name Ronan because it sounds like Rounin, which is totally cool. Ronan, if memory serves, actually means something like “little seal”, which is a good deal cuter.
Welcome to the “a lot of the names in this series mean things” corner
Apologies for the terrifying kanji, i’ll admit to actually just copying it from the rounin wiki page. i’ve also been reading a lot of manga lately, instead of drawing . - . HEY it’s my break, i can do what i want!!!!
OH a side note: his name is probably how he and franz got to be friends. Franz totally thought it sounded like he was Rurouni Kenshin or something. these are all just half-thoughts, and subject to change
