Well its easy:
North: Whitebeard (Barbarian north europe style)
South: Big Mom (african, tribal women style)
West: Shanks (american, hawaian surf style)
East: Kaidou (japanese, chinese SHOGUN style)
You will see.
that would be cool and sounds plausible to me. great discussion btw, one of the more interesting topics lately :)
Kaidou is the name of one the main characters in Prince of Tennis (finished, former Shonen Jump series) and Shin Prince of Tennis (the second part, currently running in Jump SQ)
So Proud to be Spanish:
Real Madrid 10 Champions World (2010) and Europe (2008,2012) Champion of Football.
Nadal Golden Slam Champion (Golden Olympic Medal and 4 Grand Slams)
Pau and Marc Gasol , Fernando Alonso....
ohhhh shit we may have another Mozgus
I find the second meaning interesting, considering Moria looks similar to a devil or demon, and his name comes from morgue
"Moria" may come from 蠑螈 which can be read as "imori", meaning "newt". And the bolded letters of Gecko Moria, which makes Komori, means "bat" in Japanese. And Gecko pronouced in Japanese as Gekko, means "moonlight" in Japanese, which suits his horror theme as well.

Wow. Can't believe I never read this thread. That was a great trivia.
Though I have always thought that Oda is using the Momotarou story for the admirals. Momotarou recruited a dog, a monkey and a bird.
But if Oda is also using the seas and its colors as a sign, then Smoker becoming an admiral sounds plausible. Just a random thought though, would he still be Aokiji, or Shiroryu (Shiro is white and Ryu is Dragon right? pls correct me if I'm wrong).
Anyways the mythology about the seas can also be used for the Yonkous, I agree that the black/white difference might reference to Whitebeard replaced by Blackbeard (after all, he did steal the Gura Gura no Mi).
I've seen the design somewhere before, a long time ago when Hancock was first introduced. The fourth guy seemed an awful lot like BrownBeard. Only the 2nd and 3rd guy is a mystery, or they have been used and I just missed it?
I am expecting a very long arc with Kaidu.
I am pretty sure he will be an incredible strategist, very cheap and cruel. I am expecting him to be the most cruel of the Yonkus.
I never believed that Smoker would be an admiral right after the timeskip, until now.
If he's been training sufficiently, it's theoretically possible...?!
I want it to happen now >.< But even if Oda originally intended it that way, I still don't think that he has set it up sufficiently that it's a believable step in the story.
So probably not yet :/
I go to MIT. One Piece is that little shred of joy I wait for every week in a life full of way too much work.
