All of the names suck except for Stella, but Gladiolus is the one that makes me shake my head eerytime. Like I just can't woth anything that has to do with Gladiolus. From his name to his design. It's all just horrid

gladiolus- N.
an Old World plant of the iris family, with sword-shaped leaves and spikes of brightly colored flowers, popular in gardens and as a cut flower.

beautiful and strong oh my the name is more horrible than Gladiator! Lest not forget the sword named Gladius!


Your best bet is to really just stfu ExtremeLight. Cause I didn't really ask for your commentary. If I don't like the name then I don't. You're dismissed. Bye Felisha.


Wow. Someone's getting awfully defensive.


Just another Wednesday for westonticklee.


lmfao! You're one to talk! You're dismissed

so let me get this straight, they basically took some "cool sounding name" put it through google translator and that's the name of their characters?


why not pick names that have a clear latin influence, but aren't just google translator inspired names.

like Stella, is an awesome name. latin influence, but still relatable to the western audience

Which is why she has the best name. Ignis would be good too, but Stupeo or whatever ruins it.

You're not contributing everything besides being a rabid fanboy. Now stfu and go sit in the corner where you belong. You don't dismiss me. I do the dismissing. And you've already been dismissed.

I contributed by offering what the name means in response to your post. No need to go all crazy about it calling me a rabid fanboy, what?

You can't dismissed the light! You'll let darkness in your heart.

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