Final Fantasy Compendium

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.

Much of the information therein is based on the "Origins of Character Names in Final Fantasy" by Mark Rosa and Andrew Vestal. FF Compendium reserves the right to almagamate information from this source.

Sending in Name Origins: Everyone's encouraged to e-mail us any additions or corrections we don't have! However, if we consider your idea to be either too obvious or too farfetched, I won't add it (a good percent of ideas do get in, though!) Please include your source as well ("I think I heard about it" is not a source). If a name is a word in a foreign language, please tell me which language.
