I read on Fanpop that the name Titania comes from a Shakespearean play called A Midsummer Night's Dream.
In this play, it happens to be that Titania is queen of fairies. Did the creators of Fairy Tail happen to get inspiration from Shakespeare's plays and was that how Erza got the nickname 'Titania'? Also did they use this play as an inspiration for the name of the anime Fairy Tail?
Note: I came across this when I was trying to find out why Erza had the nickname Titania? I did a Google search but didn't find out any solid answers besides...
She's the strongest mage in the guild, and that's how she earned the nickname Titania.
To sum it up, I am not asking how she got the nickname in the show, but how the producers came up with the nickname. What was their inspiration for the nickname Titania.
Please refrain from saying:
- She got her nickname from being the strongest in the guild
- The producers came up with that nickname because she is strong
