What did you name all your characters through all the FFs if you didn't keep them default? I'm sorry if this was posted before >.<;

I kept all my character names the same, rarely would I ever change any of them. It just takes something away from the game to me.

I once changed everyones name in 9 to beefhead fir amusement factor. It wasnt amusing though

in FF7 i changed Red XIII's name to Nanaki. not a big deal but when you get to Cosmo Canyon, the man at the entrance says, 'Nanaki is Nanaki'.

I didn't rename any of my characters (except I called Red XIII Red 13 cuz I hate roman numerals)

I like the names they are given

I have only changed them in FF-VII before. We played the game in a friend of mines place. We picked following names:

Cloud - Dennis (my buddys name)
Aeris - Brigitte (my own name)
Tifa - Amanda (fantasy name)
Barret - Muffe (nickname of a friend - female, but who cares)
Yuffie - Nina (fantasy name)
Cid - Homas (from Thomas without the "t", friend of mine)
Red XIII - Taz (from Tazmanian devil)
Cait Sith - Arnold (for some strange reason we thought about Arnold Schwarzenegger)

Yep, that's it. I used to change them every time I played, but I don't do it anymore, because this is irritating me. ;)

Heh, I started FF7 and re-named the characters after people in the shrine.
Won't tell who I used though as they would string me up by the ball-hairs and whip me with sticks. :(

When I was younger, I used to name the characters after myself, my siblings, and my friends.

FFVI was something like....

Terra: Mandi
Locke: Raunch
Edgar: Danny
Sabin: Chris
Cyan: Joey
Gau: Andrew
Celes: Jaclyn
Shadow: Alex

and so on. You get the picture.

Now, I just stick with the default names, at least the first time through. Sometimes, when I replay IX, I'll name Steiner "Rusty", and then giggle at myself.

I named mine after me and my family/ friends.
Cloud:Adam (cos hes the main character :P)
Tifa: lisa
Barret:barrer (i put r by accident, meant to correct :\)
red: lola (my old dogs name)
Cid: lloyd
Cait sith: cat >_<

i named my people anything when i first started, then i realised how confusing it was.

Hehehe. I keep all my characters' names when I play the game the first time around, and then the second time around I re-name them. It was like this:

<b>Cloud</b> - Nyx (means "Darkness" or something...I forgot)
<b>Barret</b> - Piers (There's a teacher in my school named Mr. Piers who looks JUST LIKE Barret, so I named him that.)
<b>Tifa</b> - Diana
<b>Aeris</b> - Gwyneth
<b>Yuffie</b> - Mayu
<b>Red XIII</b> - Anubis
<b>Cait Sith</b> - Chance
<b>Vincent</b> - Banquo (Character from Shakespeare's "Macbeth." He ended up getting killed by his best friend a.k.a the main character ;p)
<b>Cid</b> - I kept him "Cid". Because I refuse to have an FF without a Cid :P (Actually, I really don't care...XD; )

<b>Squall</b> - Kaoru (because his expression on the main menu reminded me of Kaoru's expression from Dir en grey in some photos ;p)
<b>Rinoa</b> - Sarah.

<b>Zidane</b> - Lupus
<b>Steiner</b> - Octavio. (Ohohoho. XD)
<b>Garnet/Dagger</b> - Katana
<b>Vivi</b> - Kyo
<b>Freya</b> - Laverna
<b>Amarant</b> - Red. :P
<b>Quina</b> - Quina. >:P
<b>Eiko</b> - Amy
