Due to a lack of proper localization, a common problem for fans of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series is determining the correct spelling of names found in the series. Multiple scanlation groups, fansubbers, and even professional anime and gaming companies often translate these names based on assumption or other reference material, or to avoid trademark and copyright issues outside of Japan. Because of the series' common theme of referencing musical artists, a false etymologyW has formed amongst fans regarding some of the names.

Hirohiko Araki himself is not known for his consistency, and spelling changes become apparent even in the manga. (see Joseph Joestar or Jotaro Kujo below). Many fans believe most of the names are spelled exactly like the artists and bands they reference (with some exceptions such as Zeppeli) due to the belief that Araki does not like copyright changes to his character names, but for the purposes of this website, the articles use a naming convention that takes into account the most recent Japanese romanization found in the manga or artbooks, as well as their consistency throughout multiple official sources.

JOJOVELLER is the most recent artbook to provide English names for all major characters through April 2014, while the volumes of JoJolion provide English names for newer characters and Stands.
