Guangzhou and Tokyo Epic Names Fail (or win?)

I am sorry if this has been posted before in GM (if that's the case, I'll delete this immediately).

But this:



From the Guangzhou website

Some of the names are just the pinyin forms of phonetically translated names, such as Kamei Lin

But in other case, such as amanmuladuo baby, the baby probably comes from wa, chinese phonetic translation of va. Wa means baby, and I guess they used an automatic translator or something?

and then there are unexplainable translations, for exmaple history of paper chanelle

Epic.

Paano baby would be panova.

Wave of pure reason is a Japanese player, not sure which one. For some reason, when Japanese names become translated in Chinese, they almost always become super poetic
Libraries have liya se wa is Kudryavtseva, but I can't figure out how they got there.
The phonetic translation of panova should be pa nuo wa, and wa can mean baby, so I assume they somehow translated it back into english?
