The Premade Sims' "real" (in-universe) names are Simlish ones but get translated in other Earth languages according to their sound, meaning, origin, puns, or just general feel.

* The same Simlish names don't always get translated into the same English (or other language) names, and the same English names don't always mean the same Simlish ones.

[[WMG: The Grim Reaper is actually a diffrent person in each game, each one being a dead spirit]]
One of the most memorable parts of the sims games series is the fact the grim reaper shows up to collect you when you die. But it's not really a "the" grim reaper and more like "the current" grim reaper, let me explain, in each of the the original 3 sims games and sims medieval (not counting other spinoffs and sims 4 as those take place in an AlternateContinuity) the grim reaper looks different every time. In The Sims 1 he holds the "tradiditional" grim reaper look, the sims 3 version looks similar but with some differences, while the sims 2 version looks like a wraith and holds no sign of the human like skeleton like the other two. Sims Medieval looks the most different with two strips of white hair coming out of his shadowy hood, purple hands, black wings and overall more olden and demonic.

It's even possible to WooHoo him in some games. And also in some you can plead for another sims life with him and have a chance to succeed, and in sims 3 he will even let sims with the unlucky trait live just for their own amusement. Something that an embodiment of death most likely wouldn't do due to taking their job seriously. And if you manage to get him moved into your household and he dies another reaper shows up and takes his soul. The answer is simple; all of these Reapers are actually dead sims who have been chosen at random by whatever Great God (not counting the player) in the Sims universe to take the souls of the dead until they back down or somehow die. The reason that they let some sims live is because of a sense of mercy and sadism when dealing with unlucky sims, the second of which is most likely part of the reason they were chosen. The demonic and skeletal like appearance of most of them is because, as we can see in the sims 2, Reapers can bring sims back as zombies. So the reason they look like skeletons and demons is because they tried using their powers to bring THEMSELVES back but we're not experienced enough and/or COULDNT bring themselves back completely and ended up as odd zombies. The wraith grim reaper was just smart enough to know he couldn't and was content the way he was.

[[WMG: The recurring sims - Bella Bachelor, Mortimer Goth, Betty Simovitch, Bob Newbie Jr., et al - aren't exactly the same people]]
Either TS1, TS2, and TS3 are all set in the year 2000 but in different places on the same planet, but with some quite similiar people cropping up here and there.

Or TS1 is set in 2000, TS2 is set in 3000, and TS3 in 4000, technology grows very slowly in the SimVerse, and some sims either reincarnate or have vaguely similiar appearance and personality.

Or TS1, TS2, and TS3 are all set in 2000, with all savefiles\neighborhoods being a slightly different universe. TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4 are just four separate "dimensions" one on top of the others. It use to be like that until something happened to the TS4 dimension.

Or TS1 is set in 2000, TS2 in 2005, and TS3 in 2009, in the same universe\dimension which just changes its mechanics a lot (and there are diff. breeds of vampires, werewolves, et al) and there just happen to be a lot of coincidentally alike people, or distant relatives with the same passions and stuff.

Any identical names between "recurring sims" are just a quirk of translation from Simlish to English. The only family to actually always be the same is the Landgraabs, if anyone. And maybe the Goths. It's just that they're DISTANT relatives, that is.

The GBA/DS Sims games take place before any of the other games. ''The Sims: Bustin' Out'' occurs when English is still used, and mind control hasn't been achieved as you only control one character. ''The Urbz: Sims in the City'' takes place a bit further in the future, when Simlish has been promoted as cool to get the younger generations of the populace to use it exclusively. Mind control still hasn't been used on the public, but corruption is already spreading among the government as seen with Daddy Bigbucks' evil plot. The latter game is also depicting the foiling of one or more of the soon-to-be oppressive state's plots by LaResistance.

[[WMG: Lopita Alto and Lopita Ojeda are two different sims]]
Olin and Yelena Ojeda's description says they have a daughter named Lopita. They don't know Lopita Alto so it won't be her. Look at the Medina-Hernandez family tree, they're in two different households yet Palmira is connected to Florita. (Even though Palmira's parents are ex-spouses when they're suppose to be ex-lovers.)

I think Lopita Alto and Lopita Ojeda just have the same given name. Townies often reuse playable's names. Milton Tong is not Milton Bachelor, Brandi LeTorneau is not Brandi Broke, yet they reuse names and stuff.

So yeah, Lopita Alto was a townie before marrying Alfonso.

They decided to give Lopita Alto and Lopita Ojeda the same first name, to imply traditionalism. Lopita Ojeda, hates, HATES family and traditionalism, and is a technogeek on-par with Cycl0n3 and the Sunset Valley Wainwright's, so she changed her name and moved into a town that's NOTHING like Isla Paradiso.

Plus, the Manzanos also have children living away. I bet one of them is Holly Greenwood of Twinbrook (she slept in the green leaf bed?) and that Harley Greenwood is the little sibling of Jade and Emerald, making him Margarita and Manuel's grandson.

** The time inconsistencies are easily explained; only Sunset Valley and perhaps a few other towns are 50 years before the events of TS2. Every other town is further back or in the future.

* The problem is that Dina's memories clearly show its the same Michael who she kissed and then married, so there's no way it could be true.
