A whirlpool is something rough and dangerous, and Naruto Uzumaki's personality is similar.
    The name 'Uzumaki Naruto' is also a pun that refers to the spiral patterned dried fish cake that is often used as a garnish (and actually shown in the series) in his favorite ramen soup dishes....

    Naruto IS the main character in the very beggining. But time progresses, and the plot unravels, we understand that there are many inner stories, and NO ONE is the main character.

    Naruto Uzumaki IS NOT the main character. As the story unfolds, this is discovered. The reason the show was called Naruto was because he is the first character revealed in this anime.

    Wrong, he is the main character.
    1. for an anime to b an anime and not a domestic cartoon it has to have a storyline and a character who will reach his goals
    2. naruto is obviously the main character because hes involved in every ep whereas everyone else is not
    3. and as the story unfolds it becomes more evident that he is the main character...
    where do u get this from? the story clearly states he is the main character...
