According to former Capcom member Seth Killian, Rolento's name was supposed to be "Laurence" when he was in the developmental stages of becoming a character, but due to the L and R confusion in the Japanese language as well as the additions of vowels at the end of words in transliteration, "Laurence" became "Rolento". Judging by Japanese transliteration however, Neo_G may have meant the similar name "Laurent" (ロレント), as Lawrence would have instead been rendered as (ロレンス).
