    Why is Naruto a Uzumaki?

    I feel like this might have been explained somewhere along the lines and I forgot but I'm curious for these reasons.

    1.Minato is a Namikaze and traditionally the japanese children take the last name of the father.
    2.He doesn't even have the uzumaki clan signature red hair.

    Is it because he's a jinjuriki that he has the uzumaki last name? Since his mom was going to be a jinjuriki and Mito was the last one.


    What do you think?

    Hiruzen didn't want people thinking he was Minato's son.

    I'm guessing it's because Kushina's Uzumaki gene is the dominant one.

    Hiruzen gave Naruto his mother's maiden name because he wanted to erase any connection to Minato so he would be protected from Minato's enemies.

    I don't really know and I'll like to find out, but I think it could have been a way Hiruzen devised to protect him since most people should know that the fourth was Namikaze.

    Naruto's mom is an uzumaki and why naruto's last name is uzumaki and not namikaze cuz minato had enemies and he didn't want to know that he had a child.

    When was it ever stated that minato had enemies? He seems like the guy everyone liked.

    Re: Why is Naruto a Uzumaki?

    I feel as though it's both reasons. Number one is, of course, to protect Naruto's identity. But number two is genetics. Naruto could have been all Namikaze--in which case, Naruto would have turned out to be nothing special--but the Uzumaki prowess of having an extremely-high chakra pool and endurance prevailed. Because these genes are expressed far more than the mundane Namikaze!

    He killed over a thousand people in the war so he's going to have quite a lot of enemies.

    The whole point of war is people dying. I also don't think Hiruzen would've let anything happen to him if someone did try something.

    You don't become Hokage without making a few enemies.
