I suggest changing it to "Re Mie". This name appears both on the Viz Media euroupe site and on her nendoroid box. Neither of which I consider particularly reliable, as both are third party and not mainstream, but put them both together and I feel they make up enough of a citation to warrant this name being preferred.

- Zoidspoison also has "Re Mie", however every other English source I've seen uses "Rei Mii"...Azimuth727 14:33, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
That may be, but I think the name should be "Rei Mii" still. Main reason is because that is the most common name used for her in both Japanese and Western fandom. Now yes, we are the English Zoid Wiki, but keep in mind we also pick the most common names used (such ad the Zaber Fang, Thomas/Karl's last names, etc). So I think the same applies to Mii, given that "Rei Mii" is the most form of her name.
As for adding in info about those creepy SD figures on the articles, go ahead, I won't delete them (given I know your refering to me).

For what it's worth, FMC romanizes it as "Rei Mii." Because I've yet to see an official English spelling of her name, perhaps it would be best to go with the most commonly spelling used among the fandom? However, seeing as these three sources use "Rei Mie," it's definitely something to consider. Argh, names, you confuse me so. -Imperial Dragon 16:15, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
The problem with "most common" is that its a bit self-fulfilling. A fansub called it "rei Mii", so we called it "rei mii", making it popular... See the problem there? So yes, while Rei Mii is the most popular name, that's not a good way of deciding in this case (in other cases it's fine, but in Genesis, because of fansubs, its not). I don't really care what spelling is used, so long as it is not referenced from a fansub. Slax01 23:03, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
As well as the four sources mentioned (FMC spells it Re Mie as well, by the way), the many Re Mie x Kotona CDs and DVDs spell it "Re Mie", so that's definitely the official spelling. You even get more Google results for 'Zoids "Re Mie"' than 'Zoids "Rei Mii"', although 'Zoids "Re Mii"' wins by a long way. Cheironyx 10:58, March 5, 2011 (UTC)
