    Which is the correct way to spell it?

    Ok I know this is kinda a useless thread, but I'm kinda tired of seeing pein/pain's name being spelled two different ways. Well from the databook translation from gameboy, it says the right way to spell it is pain, but I know in some translations from the manga, they spell it pein. which way is right? It is so simple of a name so it would be nice to see everyone on the forums to spell it the same way that's all.

    I believe "Pain" is the correct way since he keeps going on about "Show the world some pain" or "How bout a little pain" or "Here comes the pain!!!" (Last one is just me lol). But for me, I just prefer to spell his name as "Pein." It feels more like a proper name to me.

    It's Pain, as in the 6 paths of Pain. I don't mind the spelling Pein since it's pronounced the same, but i would hope if people can't get used to Pain, they should use Paine instead, like max paine. Paine is the real proper name. or maybe Payne. Pein added with an apostrophe pein's kinda looks like peni*.
    I personally prefer Pain since that makes it more cold and brutal sounding.

    The translators spelled it "Pein" because it's written with the Japanese characters for PE, I and N. They probably weren't sure how to write it in English, so they probably decided to stick with the romaji.

    If the databook says it's Pain, then it's Pain.

    Id prefer Nagato, tough. That´s him, after all. Pein-Pain is just his ninja artistic name.
