First time I heard the name, I thought it was a sci-fi anime about a bunch of teenagers laying siege on Saturn's moon; Titan.

Which is another reason why I don't like the English names for anime. :D

Going by my anime Japanese language knowledge, "no" usually means "of". Also, translating word for word can more often than not make absolutely no sense.

 

Oh, and the city is not big enough to be called "Titan". At least as far as I remember. Nor does it have anything that could be considered titanic in size or any such buildings/ factories.

I prefer to translate the "no" particle as apostrophe+S.

Mostly because that conserves the meaning without reminding people to switch the order of the words.

eg: Hotaru no haka --> Fireflies's gave / Grave of the fireflies.

Also.... well, I haven't really watched more than fragments, so it was my not watching the anime and patching so that it made sense.

Completely agree that the current official name makes no sense at all.

Well..... Shoujo Kakumei Utena was translated in Mexico as "El anillo mágico" (The magic ring).

But I get your drift. It sucks.

Hard to trump, but my favorite will always be Ceres.... reminds me of FF6 ^_^
