What’s In A Final Fantasy XIV Name?

March 12th, 2013 by Tony Garsow


Let’s say you’re dead set on playing a Roegadyn when Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn releases. Let’s also say that you’re tired of your pop-culture or irreverent character-naming kick. For a change, you want to name your character something that fits within the world of Hydaelyn. With the advent of the new official Lore forum, the team has revealed the naming conventions for each of the five races. Voila! You’ve got a great Roegadyn name like: Ryssmann Barasatz

Each race has its own conventions, whether they be inspired by different real-world languages like the Hyuran and Elezen races, or based off in-game tribal customs like the Miqo’te. Each of the five races has two distinct clans (such as the Plainsfolk and Dunesfolk Lalafell) that inform how names are chosen.

The five races’ naming conventions, as well as a Roegadyn dictionary, can be found in the stickied threads on the official forum.

Have you settled on a race to play when A Realm Reborn launches? Thought of a name for your character yet?

  • AgitoXIII

    I actually had a great name for my character. It was weather related like other main FF characters in past FF games. The naming conventions they have are cool tho. Are they officially for SE? Seems they are cus it’s based off lore i guess XD

    Can’t wait for this game. cant wait.

  • Tony Garsow

    Yep, these are the official lore naming conventions. Any lore bit we can prize out of Fernehalwes’s mouth is official, hehe.

    I never played XI or XIV but it looks fun. Nola’ra would be a name no?
