But, arent most u's in Japanese spelling are pronounced silent..? :? like Sasuke being pronounced as Sas-ke?
Correct me if i'm wrong, but if that was the case, then, Doreen would not be much different from Doreem, right?  :?

It's more like Doreemu...

Either way, Doreemu and Doreen are MIGHTY similar...

I officially believe that they're connected now.

There are some exceptions like that, especially with "su" but for the most part the "u" is pronounced.  But then again...

It's compelling.

I done my research Doreen is the japanese pronunciation of DReam

whoa whoa whoa hold your horses.  I'm half Japanese myself, and that is NOT the pronunciation of Dream.  It's more like Doreemu...


Yeah I know but that was the aim of his name if you put doreemu sounds bad, rigth?

Alright, what was the point of whoever pointing out that Doreen & Dream are similar? What? Woosley fuct it up? Who cares...? Why does the pronunciation of the two words matter, again?

If I am recalling correctly, the importance of Dream and Doreen being similar is in turn the similarity between Dorino and Doreen. Given Masa and Mune's location at the time, it would be interesting if we can establish a Doreen/Dorino connection.

Plus, any connection between the word 'Dream' and 'Doreen' create a literal link between Doreen and the "cosmic", dream-like existence of Masa, Mune, and obviously Doreen.
