No, refering to the kids as, for example. "Flavia's Son", is better and less confusing.

Welcome to my Series, Rate the Character! Here, we will be analyzing each and every combination of 2nd generation characters, and giving them a rank of D (lowest), C, B, A and S (Highest). These topics usually will last just a single day, so be careful not to miss them! Spoiler Warning Here.

You can also nominate previously rated pairings to be brought back and re-discussed. There are more details in this topic, make sure you read it if you are nominating:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643003-fire-emblem-awakening/66329592

...

Except we are not actually rating anything today! Today, we will simply discuss "if we should name the new kids, and if yes, whay should those names be? Until this matter is settled, i won't be able to continue. I'll give it some time, and in the worst case, i'll do the next Paralogue instead while this remains open

You are free to nominate anyone, as long as you give a small contribution to the discussion. Only one nomination for today.

I think that referring to the mother instead of the kid will be better, specially for those who are not familiar with this series.


BUT, i do have a suggestion for naming the kids.Names that are easy to relate to their own mothers. So, my ideas are:

Sayri's Son: Lenha (Yen'fay's japanese name)
Aversa's Daughter: Inverse (Aversa's japanese name)
Flavia's Son: Felix (A mix of Ferox's American name and Japanese name [Felia])
Anna's Daughter: Annie (Of the closest names to "Anna", this one is my favorite)

So, my two cents. By the way, i still won't be doing Emmeryn and Tiki's possible kids (unless this suddenly gets popular. in this case i might reconsider). Gangrel's pairings were a simpler thing to do.

As a fan of the facebook FE community.
A page called "Lita - Fire Emblem Awakening" has drawn designs of a few kids, and even wrote a support (C-S) for two of them.
Overall I think they were very well done and would like to just leave them there in the open to be seen and considered.

I'm unsure if Links are allowed in GF posts but : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=735370833156278&set=pb.695271883832840.-2207520000.1379284393.&type=3&theater
(Colored version of Anna's daughter "Annette" just as an example)

I'm a total nub at this (despite playing the game through 2 1/2 times so far). I'm in search of the ideal children pairings, and while every other guide it helpful, most are jumbled, full of advanced/confusing jargon, and refuse to come out and state the best pairings. The reason I'm saying this is because it is AWESOME to have a list that is plainly stating which parings are best and if if one looks a bit it's fairly easy to see the reasoning for them. I have one request I need help with. I see things like Basilio!Nah, and when I look in my game I don't see how I can make that happen- Basilio can't support Nowi. I was wondering how I can make this happen, or is it only speculative? I really appreciate any help you can give, and I apologize for being a total idiot, heh.

All pairings with a "+" before the name are just speculative. Sadly for Nah, she would kill for a dad like Basilio.

If you want to know more about a specific kid, use the search bar! It will lead you to my rating topics and other ones that might be of good use to you.

Ahhh, thanks for the clarification. Still, very awesome threads. And I think Anna as the kid's name is funny, like an homage to Nurse Joy. I'd offer more names but I'm not nearly that creative.
;P
