Been wondering about a name change for a while...

Why was Esty and Filly's last name changed from Erhard to Dee?

I don't have personal experience of it either, the name is still frickin' cringe-worthy in my opinion. :D

I really hope you're joking. Erhard is a pretty cool name and Esty loses alliteration for the sake of...Dee. Whatever the reason is it's pretty lame.

Like I said, a pun.
It's not "no reason", though you can easily argue about the quality of that reason.

My friend who has Esty as a waifu would fight you in the middle of the highway for that remark.

NISA's very consistent when it comes to being a localization company; when they see an opportunity to make an inappropriate joke, they take it immediately.
