Harriet doesn't sound sophisticated enough? I'd second the Alexandra/Alex option though. There are also a number of inherently gender-neutral names in English, like Leslie. Why they didn't go with one of their many, many equivalent options I have no idea...
The only male Leslie I've ever seen was Leslie Nielsen.

That Four King Hell has shown me an interesting take on Minako.

That truly, Maybe "Minako" is the Bruce Wayne 'mask' of Venus' Batman.

Going from bubbly and happy to freaked out and looking scared....

One episode every twenty pages for this thread!

What will the ratio be next? :D

I think the name "Leslie" for a guy was mainly a British thing, popular years back. However, there's another male famous acting Leslie I can think of - Leslie Howard, aka the wimpy Ashley Wilkes, Scarlet O'Hara's object of desire in "Gone with the Wind".

He was killed when his plane was shot down during WW2 - rumor says he was using his acting career as a cover for some sort of anti-Nazi work, and the Luftwaffe shot his plane down to get him - or was it to get Winston Churchill?

According to Wikipedia, Bob Hope is actually a Leslie. I did not know that...

I always felt that Alex was a more sensible dub name for Haruka too. I seem to recall that the Mixx manga translations actually did use this name for a while, though in the collected volumes they switched over to Haruka. The name might have appeared on some merchandise too.

might be fictional, but iirc Charmed had a guy named Leslie- not sure what's better, putting it as "Victim of the Week" or "Love Interest of Phoebe". The two things tend to overlap.

(also, the 1k has been breached, shouldn't we wait for a new thread to talk in?)
