What’s this little green dinosaur’s name? If you said “Yoshi” we’ve got news for you…

RN24: "Nicknames can be confusing things, especially when they’re the only name by which you’ve ever known someone. I can clearly remember the moment when my friend’s Japanese wife looked at me with a mixture of surprise and betrayal, for example, when she found out that Phil (or “Firu” as it’s awkwardly pronounced in Japanese) is in fact short for Philip.

But after learning that the same green dinosaur that I’ve traversed hundreds of levels, raced go-karts and carried baby Mario back to his parents with since I was about 10 years old isn’t actually called Yoshi, I can kind of understand why she was so shocked."

But isn't it possible that that only used to be his name like how Dr. Robotnik had his name changed to Dr. Eggman or how Princess Peach used to be Princess Toadstool?

He will always be Robotnik to me!! T~T

I prefer peach to a name that literally means "toad crap"... though toadstool is probably just her last name. Eggman was always Robotnik's name in Japan.

Well, if they are the super mario bros., that would make mario their last name.
