Anyone else see Baby Razz's name and think Raspberry?
Razzbaby... Razzberry.... Raspberry...? No...? Just me...? OK...

Thought I'd throw that out there.

Yeah, I never once actually thought I was the only one who saw that, but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere else and there aren't any better suggestions for Baby Razz so, I thought I'd throw the suggestion out there. n_n

Was looking through YJA and Google translate auto-translate sometimes doesn't work the best for Shinki names

now that the "gradius shinkis" are out i started thinking about their names... and well.. maybe everybody already found out about this but whetever... they're actually sort-of-puns to the names of the titular ships...

VerVietta = Vic Viper
LirBiete = Lord British

Hmm....guess I'll take a joking poke at this:

- Vervietta = Where we eat, Juliette, Very wet.

- Lirbiete = Liberty.

Nah, halconfenix has it right. I didn't know it was a mystery :P

http://gradius.wikia.com/wiki/Vic_Viper
http://gradius.wikia.com/wiki/Lord_British

Though I agree there may be a second meaning to the names. Lirbiette does sound like Liberty, and if you take the "R vs L" thing into account, Vervietta could come from Velvet.

I thought the VV and LB thing was so obvious as to not need mention. :D
