Pan-Asian Commander Naming?

Just have a question. The Pan-Asian destroyer branch will be composed of ships coming from a variety of nations. Each of these nations have their own distinctive names; for example, Chinese names are different from Korean names and Indonesian names. Keeping this in mind, how will the naming go for the P-A DDs? Will the name selections include names from all of the different nations? Will it be possible to have a Korean first name and a Thai last name? Will current owners of a Lo Yang be able to change the name of their captain into a name from a different Pan-Asian nation?

 

Curious because I am extremely excited for the Chung Mu, but I want to know if I will be able to also have a Korean-named captain in the ship as well.

Would be really awkward if Wargaming just gave them all chinese commanders

Yeah. there should be a thing when they come out for a free reroll of the name. And offer random names from all the nations expected.  Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Malay?

 

Or a toggle for what nation you want the name to be from.

Admiralty: “Captain why was ur ship destroyed?”

 

Captain: “I'm Chinese I don’t speak Korean, can’t communicate with my Korean crew except with body language.”

 

Admirality: “....”

Question for the history and asia buffs: Did any of the Asian navies allow female captains?

Maybe for you, but I can imagine that this would cause a lot of Asian server players to go ballistic.  Honestly, this seems like a big problem for a line with such a diverse group of member nations and ethnicities.  At least with any Commonwealth line, I'd imagine that the names would be mostly of English descent.

Interesting question.  Never thought of this.  Curious to know what the plan will be from WG.

Which is weird, because the JSDF Navy still uses the Rising Sun flag.
