I'm guessing it's supposed to be "Alucard"... but that sounds too close to "ala carte" for me, and I couldn't take the character seriously if that was his name, so I prefer "Arucard."

Logical, huh?

Kouta Hirano says it's Arucard. I think I'd believe the guy that created the series.

L sounds like R when spoken by japanese.
eg in bgc 2040 Lina in the jap version is pronoced as Rina.

Yeah I would think it would be Arucard since Alucard is probably copyrighted like a bitch.

he is;; in the anime it was referenced very little but alucard is dracula;; alucard is dracula spelled backwards;; and the name arucard is because there is no 'L' sound in japanese so the 'L' is replaced by the 'R' sound dubbing arucard

The big HOWEVER in all of our arguments is that this is not an ancient legend of the most beloved, respected, and feared Romanian prince ever (as Vlad was never officially crowned king). 'He' is the main character of a story by Kouta Hirano about vampires. What the author of the story says goes, it's their world. Arucard wins on a technicality no matter what we say or think.

Doesn't matter in the long run though. The legends of Alucard the traitor son of infamous vampire Dracula has been around for longer than any human has been alive. My preference is to call 'him' Alucard, because it is Dracula spelt backwards. What I heard was that 'he' is the son of Vlad Tepes, member of the order of Dragon.

I refer you to the following to learn more: http://www.donlinke.com/drakula/vlad.htm
