    Default Why is Squalls Surname Leonhart

    sure its a cool name and fits with Squall.


    but if his father is Laguna LOIRE, and his mother is Raine (who unless they were married, i dont think her surname is given.)

    Could be that Edea gave him the surname... or he gave it to himself?


    yeah i dunno

    Raine's surname is Loire as well. Just as her gravestone says.

    And Squall's name is Leonhart to fit his theme. That is really all.

    It originally was Loire but Squall, as we all know, is a petulant teenager. He went down to his local council and paid 40 to change it by deed poll. Leonhart is one of those names that sound cool as a sixteen-year-old but when he gets into his thirties he'll just be like "what was I thinking?"

    unless the devs give some official background as to why, i believe it's safe to assume that Edea and Cid gave him that name to hide his lineage... it's been forever since i played that far into the game to really remember why they would, but it may have something to do with Ellone...

    I think galuf meant to ask what Raine's maiden name was

    It's either Raine or Ellone's maiden name most likely. That or he just gave it to himself.

    I think Squall just gave the surname to himself, because the Balamb staff refuse to address his 'surname' when it becomes a SeeD.

    Garden Faculty: "Dincht...Zell Dincht."

    Zell: "OHHHHH YEAHHHHHH!!! See ya!!!

    [Zell runs off quickly.]

    Garden Faculty: "Squall...Squall from Squad B. Please step forward."

    [Squall walks off.]

    If my surname was "from Squad B" I'd give myself a new one too.
