wondered what Vegeta's name means or wanted to know how to write and spell
in out in Japanese? Well, this is your stop!
from Ginga GIRI GIRI!!! site
Spellings: First of all, I go with the name "Vegeta" because it's
an obvious pun on the word vegetable. All of the Saiya-jins
are named after vegetables, so that makes it easy to understand. The Japanese
spelling of the name is "Bejiita" because there is no "V" in the
Japanese alphabet and "i" makes an "e" sound. The double "i" is for an
"ee" type sound. The other spellings are...
Bejita: I guess people like to write it without the other "i"
Vejita: like above, just with a "V"
Bejeeta: the way Nippon Golden Network subbed it
Vegita: name without the extra "i" but with a V
Vejiita: katakana romanization with the "V" instead of the "B"
How to write "Vegeta, Bejiita": Since "Bejiita" is a foreign word
(which means trying to write words in other languages in Japanese or words
that don't mean anything in Japanese!) it would have to be written out
The romanji name is "Bejiita", now here's how you write it in katakana...
what each of the katakana means...
||"Be" the e makes an "ay" sound
so it would sound like "Beh"
||"ji" the i makes an "e" sound
||"i" The "-" means to repeat
the last letter of the last symbol. Since the last letter of "ji"
was "i", that would me we would repeat it to make the long "ee" sound
||"ta" this would make a "tah"
So you would
pronounce it "Beh-jee-tah" and spell it out as "Bejiita" in Japanese.
I hope that helps on how to write his name and what it means! ^_^
