">Looking at [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Rim_%28film%29]the Wikipedia page [/url] for the movie, there are two characters with the last name Antrobus. Antrobus has its own [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antrobus]Wikipedia page[/url], which says: "The name derives from the Old Norse Eindvizh-buski, a personal name and the word for bush or shrub. In the Domesday Book, the area is referred to as Entrobus. An alternative derivation of the name is the Norman-French Entre-bois which can be interpreted as '[b]within the woods[/b]'." Rinko Kikuchi plays a character named Mako Mori. Mori is [b]Japanese for forest[/b]. Regarding Rinko Kikuchi's character, she is described as an untested trainee. The kanji for tree is similar to the one for forest (in fact, "forest" is composed of three "tree" kanji"). I think that she will wind up becoming very powerful during the film--essentially, she becomes a forest despite only being one tree/one person. So we've got two main characters (Raleigh Antrobus and Mako Mori) whose names are related to the woods/forest. Does anyone think this is significant, or just coincidence? Do you think any of the other characters' names has significance?"

Thanks for that information. That's quite interesting with the background of the names and the forest in particular. Well I guess we will later if this any relevance in the film. I like to think that you are on to something here.

I could not find a definition of the 'Mako' but it being associated with Mako Shark(and other dish species). indicating speed, agility even aggressive. So a charator name Mako Mori might be a nod to a swift shield..or agile protector(as a forest might offer a traveller) with some connection to the water based monsters. Yea it is a bit of a reach but those two words for the charactor's name were selected not chosen at random..
