So why do आप think Mello and Near are named that?

I always wondered where they got those names from. Mello i think is supposed to be ironic because he's anything but. Near i just don't get though. Any thoughts on why they choose these names possibly? We might be able to come up with some cool ideas!

That's a good question. The लेखक कहा he wanted it to be a story to where आप can speculate unmentioned things for yourself.. so, I'm not sure.

Personally, I think they were both meant to be ironic. Mello, like आप said, is anything but mello. Near, I think his name is ironic because he's distant from everyone around him- but on another hand, it could also mean that he's always "near the target" therefore always figuring things out.

This is all speculation though.

Hmmm...

I think that Mello's Alias is supposed to be ironic, because he's not calm at all.

Also, for Near's Alias, He's smart, and nice, so maybe it means that आप always want to be near him.

Just randomly guessing.

It's confirmed that "Near" comes from taking the two first letters of his name with the two last letters of his lastname and form a word out of them;
(Na)te Riv(er) -> Near

As for Mello, anyone's guess is as good as mine. He could've gotten his name from Anthony de Mello for all I know.
