Why do the characters in FFXV have such stupid names

#11__Dylan__Posted 12/11/2013 1:46:31 AM
My nieces' names are Justice, Liberty and Peace.

Seriously.

They are triplets.

Which is kinda messed up. Or awesome. Whatever.

I blame my parents for having their say in naming them. Freakin' hippies....


So yeah, these names are awesome by my standards. ( If only you knew my middle name..sigh)

FF 6,7,8,9 had great names.

Then it all went weird...


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


He is probably very specifically talking about Tidus for X. I still remember how much he and his name were hated during that first trailer I saw.

LOL!!!

Just read your sig and realised your nieces are f****** awesome



On topic though, there's nothing wrong about FFXV's names. Anything with the tiniest bit of latin in its name is definitely cool in my books.

I like them, they are really unique/mysterious names.

Are you saying FFIX names sucked? Just so you know the game's design is heavily French themed. Alexandria Castle is based on a real French castle for example. The character's names Zidane, Vivi, Steiner, Eiko etc. are all fairly common French names. THE ONLY FF THAT USES REAL NAMES. So Fail? No. Win? Definitely yes.

Bad troll is bad. Actually has the opposite effect of what was intended.

0/10.

That's exactly why the game's so boring.
