About the Live Chat with Raynal...

He said "Twinsen is like names like Andersen which means the son of Ander, Twinsen Family is the son of Twinsun".
Does that mean Twinsen is actually the surname of our beloved hero? O.o

Actually, I thought he was refering to the ethymological origin of the name. Like it was normal to name kids after various things and concepts (from "listening well" to "Bright"), it might be just common for Twinsunians to call their kids 'son of Twinsun' aka Twinsen.

Although it might also refer to a family name, yes... well, we've got his email adress now, so why not ask?

People do call him "Mr Twinsen"... Perhaps his first name is the same as his surname. Now that would be odd.

Isn't it in Brasil that there's only a family name? Or at least, that's what I heard a long long time ago.

Twinsen is his first name. It's like Anderson meaning Twinsen is the son of Twinsun. It's more metaphorical in meaning. Twinsen was the hero of the story, he saved Twinsun. It was meant to be. Now the real brain teaser it... Did Sendell contact Twinsen's parents to give their son the name Twinsen?

And then an angel came from the sky to tell the name of their first born child. She was blue, transparent, and looked like a baby with a mermaid tail. "And your child shall be named Twinsen for he is the son of Twinsun." o.O

That's a creepy thought.

My bets are that his full name is Twinsen Twinsunson. Following the same logic...

He's the son of Twinsun. And the Son of Ander is Anderson (or sen depending on varied spelling). Therefore, he'd logically be... Twinsen Twinsunson.

I don't think they have family names actually, just like I don't think they have any form of marriage institution, or government. It's kinda cool actually, you are who you are, and your first name is your only name. You don't have to be assosiated with any of your ancestors if you don't like it, you are who you are, and not who the others think of your family. No politics, no governments, no instituions, no laws, no crime, a happy little world that doesen't need anything and is only driven by science and magic - aaaah, the perfect world.

Well, some people have surnames- Bob Vortix, Jerome Baldino...


btw, slightly off-topic: since I played LBA 2 before LBA 1, I thought, since Twinsen was considered the hero of the planet, that the planet is named after him, and not vice versa

xD Heh. I actually played LBA 2 first aswell (in a way) I got paranoid at the temple of Bu and couldn't finish the level. But at least I knew what Twinsun was. D:

But yeah. There is a point. Baldino does have a sirname. It'd be interesting to see if he does have a sirname or if it is Twinsen's sirname...

As for Lanwe. Dont bother trying to talk to him. He's my Irl friend and I am still trying to force him to borrow my LBA discs. He apparently just -had- to post his theory however. x3

Hahaha good one.
Thinking about it, it may be like jasiek said. Remember Zoe calls him Twinsen, and I can't imagine someone calling her boyfriend by surname

You put your name at the begining of LBA1, maybe that was meant to be Twinsen's name?

e.g Dan Twinsen

but they wanted voices for everything, so they cut the 1st name from in-game messages
