In Japan, she's known as Aero; for the rest of the world, it's Sephira.
Mega Man Legends 3's newest heroine has developed quite a following already, and there's been many opinions about her name. Well aware of the matter, Capcom is officially seeking input: Should this new character be named Aero or Sephira in the US release of Mega Man Legends 3?
You can vote on which name you prefer at Capcom Unity. As noted by the US devroom's new liaison, GregaMan, there's no guarantee that they'll change the name, but the results may affect the final decision.
As of this writing, Aero leads the poll at 62%, with Sephira at 32%. Cast your vote here!

I'd rather know why they changed it in the first place.ReplyDelete
It's like Capcom US have a quota of name changes to meet, what the hell.
Aero, Aero, Aero. It goes perfect with Tron and Roll. Tron, Roll, and Aero. Man, am I glad they are letting us vote on this.ReplyDelete
Aero, definitely. Sephira never sounded right or looked like it went with the character design to me.ReplyDelete
- I wonder why is Capcom changing her design like crazy. It's changed once again.ReplyDelete
She doesn't look like a "Lilly", but she doesn't look like a "Sephira," either. I'll say "Aero."ReplyDelete
And here I was just getting used to calling her Sephira... Still, this will be cool if they can get her name changed back to Aero.ReplyDelete
I rather Sephira better than Aero. I voted Sephira.ReplyDelete
Aero is more original! :DReplyDelete
Depends on whether it's "sepheera" or "sephyra".ReplyDelete
Pretty fond of Aero, but not because it's "more original". Less so, I think. Sounds better though.
I personally voted for Aero, i like the sound of that over Sephira, also Protodude, in your post you said "Aero leads the poll at 62%, with Sephira holding a steady 32%", thats only 94% and there is only two optionsReplyDelete
I personally felt that Sephira was a bit too.... Angel-JRPG-goddess character-like. Something that this girl doesn't seem to look like.ReplyDelete
So yeah, Aero sounds better.
SO glad they are doing this. It's what I wished for them to do; have a voting process. *casts vote for Aero* =)ReplyDelete
The 3 syllable name doesn't fit with Roll and Tron, therefore, Aero. Two syllables, but still four letters.ReplyDelete
Yea... Aero's gonna win.ReplyDelete
Sounds more... dynamic. XD
Sephira actually sounds much nicer. Very befitting of her looks, if I may say.ReplyDelete
Why was it changed anyway? Can't CoA keep the original names to avoid confusion between names? Bison, Vega, Balrog, Vile, Weil, ...ReplyDelete
Capcom has the worst localization teams. We don't need stupid name changes!ReplyDelete
The only case when I get a name change is when the name has been copyrighted. And even then it's irksome.
Aero all the way. I never did get used to Sephira. She's just not drop-dead gorgeous or graceful enough to be a Sephira. Maybe if she were brought up among royalty in the land of glitter and unicorns...ReplyDelete
I voted Aero. It's cute, it's short, and besides, Sephira was taken by Christopher Paolini in "Eragon."ReplyDelete
Besides, I can totally hear MegaMan saying, "Hi, Aero!" It just works.
