Names of Barras and Holly

I went to Brown University for undergrad, and the main engineering building there is called Barus & Holley. I wonder if it's just a coincidence that this name is so close to Barras and Holly, or if the characters were actually named after the building (perhaps unconsciously). Brown University has a very prestigious computer science department, so it seems plausible that there were people on the development team who went to Brown.

Whoa, that's interesting! I thought Holly's name was supposed to be based off of the word "holy", but I'm certainly not ruling your finding out.

Well, Barras's JP name is Bearing, so someone changed it for some reason. Holly's name stayed the same, though.

I always assumed Barras Lehr was a pun on 'bear wrestler' and Holly Whyte a joke on Holy and White,magic associated with the White Mage job.

Oh wow. I just noticed that.

With names like Edea Lee (ideally), Braev Lee (bravely) and Mahzer Lee (motherly), this could be the case.
