Those names are very Western. I wonder why they choose to go down that road of names?

If you haven't noticed, SE is really trying to Woo the western gamers. Which includes getting on their knees and pleasing Microsoft.

the prince should be named: Bob
the pigtail girl: Annie
the heroine: Bertha

"I get down on my knees, pleasing Jesus
I feel his salvation all over my face"

-I know, I'm sorry, but that thought just jumped at me and I felt compelled to post it.

Noctis I dig it... Latin meaning "of the night"

I like how they are continuing with the dark theme of the game with the name.

That Stella definitely doesn't sit right with me at all. :(
After names like Yuna and Rinoa and Aeris......Stella? :/

Noctis is cool though.

LMFAO you have a valid point.


Actually, this has a meaning.

They are choosing names that mean something in other language. Like "Versus".

Stella is "Star".

Noctis (not as the article say) is "Night" ("of the night" or "nocturnal" would be Nocturnus). This mislead come from the Flight Simulator called Noctis.

Sarah in Latin (CasSarah) mean "what will be", in Hebrew mean "princess".

Expect more names on this way.

The names aren't that great after the names from past games! But seriously..."STELLA!" ; Is there anyone on this planet that still has that name?
