Why do the characters in FFXV have such stupid names

Seriously, just because everyone's name is in latin doesn't make it cooler. I don't know why the Japanese always do stuff like this.

It's probably cause of the weeaboos who see characters with latin names in their anime and think its cool even though they have no idea what it means. could mean liquid garbage for all they know lmao

Noctis Lucis Caelum
Ignis Stupeo Scientia
Gladiolus Amicitia
Prompto Argentum
Cor Leonis
Stella Nox Fleuret

Next Villain after Xehanort? I suspect it will be a Light-based villain. Someone we haven't even seen yet. Just watch.

Different cultures use different names. Just because they don't use English names doesn't mean it's stupid. I also think it's a good thing that they use unique names for there characters. Seems like there are a million different "John" or "Jack" characters in western games.

Explain to me how "Cloud", "Zidane", and "Tifa" are great, and "Yuna", "Auron" and "Noctis" are weird?
