- Romanization of Kiel Lorenz
Due to the romanization process (the representation of a different writing system using the Roman alphabet by the use of transliteration or transcription) that is used to translate Japanese into English, at times subtle variances in spelling have been observed. These variances typically involve silent vowels and have little to no bearing on pronunciation. In this case, Kiel Lorenz is also often referred to as Keel Lorenz. All variances refer to the same character.
