Meaning of Lil' Johnny Bronze


#1

I’m doing some translation work.
I guess Lil’ Johnny Bronze means

Little Johnny(typical pirate name) Bronze(his bronze hook) ?

Is that right?


#2

That’s his full name, no translation should be done there.


#3

Hmm, I guess I just do Transliteration for his name


#4

he is probably a reference to Long John Silver, the pirate from Treasure Island


#5

That makes more sense. Thank you very much. :slight_smile:


#6

But still just a reference, and not something that should be subject of translation.


#7

Well. In Spanish translation change a little.

  • Is called Chico José Bronce -

Just like boy, child.
