What Is Joker's Real Name Persona 5 Royal

In Persona 5 Royal Joker’s real name canonically is Ren Amamiya and according to the manga series he’s known as Akira Kurusu.

Two different names might create confusion, but don’t worry we’ll narrow it down for you and help you choose the correct one.
Fans tend to refer to him as Ren Amamiya more often because the name suits the personality of the character. The meaning of Ren is ‘Rain’ and Amamiya means ‘Palace’. Ren refers to when the Joker met Ryuji while it was raining. And the first Metaverse dungeon where they battle Kamoshida is an Amamiya, hence a Palace.

If we take a look at the other name which is Akira Kurusu, its Japanese translation is “Killer Kill”. This name was not accepted by the fans because it held against the personality of the character. That’s because Joker is a Phantom Thief who never kills anybody. That’s why the name Ren Amamiya is adopted by fans and is also popular globally.
