Ok, so I was just wondering what people name their characters, GFs, aeons, whatev. Also why you might name it that specific name.

For example, I'm currently playing FF9 and some of my characters names are:

Zidane--George. I named him this because he has a monkey tell...he's Curious George. xD
Steiner--Emo. I named him this because if you look at his eyes it looks like he's wearing eyeliner. xD
Vivi--Ghostie. I name him this because his eyes just stare out of black and it reminds me of Halloween.
Quina--It. Because know one knows if it's a male of female.
Eiko--Sally. Because she's a little girl and it just fits her.
Amarant--Red. Because of his hair, duh.

FF7:
Barret--Either Buff or Albert. Buff is pretty self explanatory, Albert because he's black and ghetto. xD
Red XIII--Simba. Because he's a lion, duh.
Vincent--Edward. Because he's a "vampire" and the main male character from one book's name is Edward and he's a vampire.

FFX aeons:
Valefor--Gypsy. Because it has a chain thing hanging from it it just reminds me of a gypsy.
Ixion--Grease. Grease Lightning. Get it? xD
Shiva--IcyBitch. Lol. xD
Bahamut--Navajo. The wings remind me of navajo artwork.
Anima--Fishie. Cos it looks like a fish.
Yojimbo--Jimbo. Cos it's funny as hell. Especially since I know a couple Jimbo's.


So yeah, what are your funny or clever character names? (Yes, I know there were similar threads but they're all older than dirt.)

I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
I like to keep my issue drawn

in final fantasy VIII i named Squall and Rinoa both Quistis,
then at the bit when siefer kidnaps Rinoa it goes

Quistis
Quistis! Seifer took Quistis.

or something like that which left me feeling a bit confused

I named Bahamut "Bouncer" cause the way he stands reminds me of one.
Valefor got called "Tuesday" cause that was the day I got him/her. D: *so creative with names*
Haha I called Vivi from IX "Twat" xDDD That was just for the lulz.
I remember Diablos got called "Hard" cause I was young and naive, and he was extremely hard to get, and so he got named that.

oh dear so sad. =P

For the instance, I never renamed characters or Aeons. I only played FF XII (we can't change any name is this game) and FF X.
And I think names are already great and significant.

Yes! I remember that I've renamed the Squall the second time I've played the game. And I don't remenber what name I gave him. Ah yes! and I renamed Garnet... But at least I think like you Anarloth, they are great and do need to change them! smile.gif
But I remenber that my brother changed many names! And I know that he enjoyed it!

Okay, here goes: (This might take a while xD)

FF10:
Tidus ~ Leo. He just looked like a Leo to me.

FF9:
Zidane ~ Neko. To be honest, I thought it was a cat tail at first.
Steiner ~ Lorne. No reason, just did.
Vivi ~ Orco. Remember He-man?
Quina ~ Varekai. I think Cirque De Soleil had just come out with their new show Varekai and the weird thing they were using for the billboards reminded me of Quina. xD
Eiko ~ La La. This is my nickname. And it just seemed to suit her.
Amarant ~ Taco. Because that made him the Flaming Taco.
Garnet ~ Eusliss. Sound it out.

FF8:
Squall ~ Jareth. Go Labyrinth.
Rinoa ~ Sarah. Go Labyrinth.

FF7:
Barret ~ Malkovich. Again, no reason.
Red XIII ~ I think this was the only name I left alone. Ever.
Vincent ~ Macabre. Speaks for itself really.
Aerith ~ Leona. Don't know why.
Tifa ~ Lorelei. Think about it.
Cloud ~ Jareth. I like Labyrinth.
Cid ~ Cecil. Screw you, FFII.
Cait Sith ~ Cait. Just shortened. This thing was not a Sith Lord.
Yuffie ~ Keera. For the hundredth time, no reason.

FF6:
(Most of these have NO reason whatsoever, as I was playing this when I was like... 10.)
Locke ~ Craden.
Edgar ~ Lestat. Reminded me of the Vampire Lestat. happy.gif
Sabin ~ Fuego. The reason behind this one is that I bought FFIII for SNES from a garage sale. There were some games saved on it already, and this was his name when I started up the load screen. It just sort of stuck.
Terra ~ Syra.
Celes ~ Sin.
Strago ~ Pappy.
Shadow ~
Cyan ~
Relm ~ Girlie.
Setzer ~
Mog ~ Mojo.
Gogo ~ WHAT?
Umaro ~ Chewey.

I can't remember some... I'm gonna have to boot up th'good olde playstation. happy.gif I'll edit the others in here later.

I don't really like to change the names. But I do change Squall to Leon because it sounds better to me, and once I changed Aerith(s) to Meridel and Tifa to Raina... I don't know why.
