Yuuta’s surname was actually the first thing chosen about him; the first part, “waru,” started off as a joke about he would sound (“waru” meaning bad, evil, or spiteful), and turned into the basis for his character. So, fully, his last name is “spiteful sound.” His first name was chosen because it just sounded nice, but after a bit of poking around, it was discovered the “yuu” in “Yuuta” could be written with the kanji for “tie,” as in “to tie one’s necktie.” This, ironically enough, was discovered after his design was finalized with a loose necktie.

Yuuta Warune is part of the UTAU Sakusei project, links to which can be found at the top of the page. Any questions or comments can be posted on this entry, and I will reply ASAP.
