    I couldn't find an awnser to this so I was hoping someone could enlighten me

    So wiki is saying: " Titania"Erza Scarlet (エルザ・スカーレット Eruza Sukāretto), named after Eru, a character from Mashima's one-shot manga that served as a pilot for Fairy Tail

    While the Anime shows this on the grave:

    So whats correct ?

    Cheers

    (p.s. sorry is this has been awnserd before i wasn't able to find it on the forums)

    If wiki is saying that it might be correct..I guess Erza is the right one. Search some more and you will get to know the truth.

    Its Erza.
    The "Elza" is just used in some parts though(eg. betting board), but its still Erza.

    It's definately Erza. I'm not sure why it's spelt Elza in some parts of the anime, I would guess it's probably a mistake.

    It's Erza. Elza is just a mistranslation/spelling since the accent of many asian languages makes "L" sound like " R" and vice versa, and it isn't usually practiced like that in the language.

    I think it would be really weird if her name was Elza. It just wouldnt fit her.

    It's Erza, not Elza (other than the betting board). ;)
    It's the same with Zoro and Zolo.

    Asian people often pronounce l's like r's.For example,they say herro instead of hello.they probably purposely did that so that they could pronounce erza correctly

    Well, not all asian countries.

    Although this post has been made before Frozen, the only thing I could think of is Erza stripping off her armor singing Let It Go when you mentioned Elza...

    Same . In Japanese they don't have ( L ) letter so they spell it (r) sometimes they spell it (L) .

    It's same with lucy in Japanese they write it (rushi) in ( R)
