This means that forenames will precede surnames.

Manga over Anime
This is because some names are changed in the English dub, as well as some names were changed for the original anime, and this may lead to confusion, such as for example "Kid" referring to both Terry the Kid and Mantaro Kinniku. We also have a wiki policy of canon-only content, with the manga being considered canon.
Wolfman will be named 'Wolfman' and not 'Rikishiman', as 'Wolfman' is his manga name.
Geronimo will be named 'Geronimo' and not 'Beetlebomb', as 'Geronimo' is his manga name.
English over Japanese
