I most likely will never have children since I am an unattractive male but if I had kids I'd want to name one after a FF or another JRPG character.

I mean, if I like the name then that's not weird to me. I've always wanted to name a daughter Vivi, but I just think it's a pretty name

I want to marry Rinoa but that doesn't exist.

So sweet of you to want to name a child after me.

Baby Bugenhagen will learn to love his name eventually.

Doesn't sound like a good idea.

I can just imagine how ridiculous some of the names would sound. "Oh look, Sephiroth is picking on little Johnny again."

I mean, can you imagine having your child walk around with a ridiculous name like Cecil, Rosa or, God forbid, Edward?

nope, not weird at all, my nephew is named Vincent... now something like Tidus could be a problem as half the people would pronounce it right, the right one being the one the parent chose whether it be the proper Okinawan pronunciation or the whitewashed one...

Those are normal white people names.

A child named Sephiroth would be badass as fuck.

Well the funny thing about that is if you name your daughter Viviane, a proper Portuguese nickname for her would be Vivi.

Pumpkin

Yeah but that's my grandmothers name and... she was not a good woman. So just Vivi for me :erm:

Not that the situation is (hopefully) going to come up

off topic but:
My dad wasn't a good man either, and I would dream of eventually changing my last name to my Mother's so that when I had kids I would be continuing the tree in her legacy. Then one day I thought to myself that I can just keep this name and redirect it's history to serve my own dignity. Aka, owning it for myself and doing my part with it's attachment.
you could do the same for your potentially future daughter

Yes, you do. Just because he is written as Tiida does not mean the Tidus is meaningless. They very well chose Tidus as his name even in Japan whenever it is not written in Katakana - which can be seen in the manual of FFX and in Dissidia.

When it comes to names, I want my first daughter to have several names of things I love. The second name would be Aerith.

Something like Terra, Leila, Freya, Lulu, Rosa, Luna, Garnet, Fran, Maria, Beatrix, Ashe or Lenna are fairly conventional for girls.

For boys, Guy, Josef, Gordon, Scott, Ricard, Cecil, Kain, Cid, Vincent, Edgar, Locke, Leo, Barret, or Vincent are somewhat common boys names.

Meet a lot of Lockes and Garnets, do you?

(I've met no one with almost any of the "common" names you listed)

Garnet is a gemstone, like Pearl or Ruby or Jade. Not that much of a reach.

I went to high school with a kid named Locke, and we called I guy I played only Survivor with Lach, short for Lachlan.

I've never met someone named Pearl, Jade, or Ruby in real life, either. But Garnet is another step out there. No one names their kid Topaz or Labradorite. Of course I can IMAGINE someone naming their child that, but I can also imagine someone naming their child "North" or "Apple" or "God." They are not conventional names. I'd say maybe half the ones you listed would qualify.

Topaz was on Big Brother Canada so

I am 100% certain that someone named "Topaz" on a reality TV show is not using their real name.

If I'd have a daughter (probably never going to happen) I'd name her Ashelia without a second thought :D

You're right, her real name is Emerald (http://bigbrother.wikia.com/wiki/Topaz_Brady).

Freya is a pretty common girls name in Australia.

Not at all! I've known since I played Final Fantasy 6 that I wanted to name my daughter (god willing I ever have one!) Terra. Same spelling as well.

I think if it's a really cool name you might as well be different and go for it. You probably won't run into many of your high school friends named Nanaki, Tidus, or Galuf. Now if you do name your kid that, I'm pretty sure hardcore gamers and FF fans around will get the reference. I've named a dog of mine after Nymeria off of Game of Thrones. A little bit different than an actual kid, but still, a lot of these names are very unique and only recognized in the Final Fantasy community.

For hard mode, go with Eclair and Ffamran.
Seriously though, there are some pretty nice names in Final Fantasy.

Fun fact: Before my son was born, my top picks for names were Joel for a boy and Ellie for a girl.

MissH knew damn well where my inspiration came from and vetoed them both :argh:

There are names out there that are far beyond the weirdness of Final Fantasy character names _

That being said, I have always dreamed of naming future children after them, especially the female names like Edea, Rinoa, and Raine.

No particular preferences for male names though.
