I dont like any of them, but I didnt vote for something else because his name is already chosen. I would prefer something like Anubis.

I guess I would just go with Birusu, the japanese spelling. Bills seems kind of like a weird way of reading it.

I love you, champ. I'm really happy for you. Go and be an even bigger hero than before.
I know there is a bigger kitty than the roaring lion! I just know it! And I am going to find it!
You are so cute and grown up, Gohan-kun. And you are bit of a smartass, too. I think it's
that smirk.
Is it inflated, or is it modified?

I'll just go with the English name: Bills as awlays.

I don't get why so many people prefer Birusu, they say: "Becuase it's the Japanese spelling."

So what? I don't see anyone else refer to people as: Torankusu, Radittsu, Korudo Daio, Jinzoningen Ju Nana-Go, or Buru Shogun

Was it translated as Bills in some official document? I thought that was just a fanslation.

Some Japanese terms sound better than the Dubs'. People sometimes mix up what sounds appealing to them. I think Beerus sounds the coolest so I may roll with that. I would like to know what terms are official and what are fan terms, though. I'm starting to fall out of fan terms because if I follow those, then I might as well follow my own terms for a character, attack, item, etc.

Kenzenshuu uses Beerus, which will probably be as close to official as it will get for now.

Just read an interview with AT, where he says the names are puns on 'beer' and 'whiskey' So Imma call them Beer(u)s and Whis(s) from now on

Can you find that interview?

The DBZ wiki tells me it's supposed to be a pun on "virus". Wouldn't be the first time they were talking out of their asses.

HAHA, The DBZ Wiki says a lot of things.

I can't seem to find the interview where AT says birusu is from beer, but he does confirm in this one that Whis comes from Whiskey

http://www.kanzenshuu.com/2013/03/30/akira-toriyama-confirms-battle-of-gods-name-puns-again/

It be a huge coincidence if Whis indeed comes from Whiskey and Beerus just coincidentally looks like another alcoholic beverage

Sadly, the wiki seems right on this one. It seems Toriyama thought Birusu was supposed to based on beer, so he made Whis a pun on whiskey, though his interpretation was wrong.

Birusu or Beerus is based on virus, while Whis is whiskey.

Apparently, shueisha disagrees, so the puns are contested.

Well if Whis is Whiskey, I'd say Beers should be beer, no matter what AT's intenstions were, it would make most sense.
