name / n. 1. Word or phrase by which an individual person, family, animal, place, thing, or class of things is spoken of, etc. 2. Famous person. 3. Reputation.


The names in Square's flagship series are usually more than just random syllables. Many of them have histories and backgrounds, either in linguistics or mythology, from diverse cultures, both ancient and pop.

The original version of this document was the "Origins of Character Names in Final Fantasy" by Mark Rosa and Andrew Vestal. The current version is vastly extended from the original, to the point where it only makes up maybe 30% of our current material.
