I prefer the fact that they are different depending on the series.

I hate all of the ones listed.

Fira and Firaga are terrible names. I've never liked intentional misspelling of words.

Agi, Agilao, Agidyne are even worse because unless you remember that Agi stands for fire or read the description of the spell you won't know what it does by name alone.

Fireball, Eruption, Explode are a little a little better because they are English words but have the problem of not knowing which is more powerful unless you are familiar with the series.

I prefer the old school FF names of Fire 1, Fire 2, Fire 3. In a glance of the name even a newcomer to the series will know what type of attack it is and how powerful it will be.

This. Because they don't hold your hand and tell you what they do. Thus, forcing you to get good at the game and remember series terminology. Some might find that tedious or unfair, but I don't mind it. It's like remembering what "fira" means, only less obvious. It becomes 2nd nature once you get used to it, though.

I like FF. It's simple. No need to keep checking spell descriptions.
