So I originally made up a name for my character following FFXI's Goblin naming scheme.
Names ending in "ix" are male and ending in "ox" are female. And they are usually the descriptive title first then a name ending in "ix" or "ox". Sometimes the descriptive title is after the name like: Swashstox Beadblinker. The descriptive part is usually a noun followed by a verb, and the main name is usually related to the description in some way.
Anyways I named my character with a made up goblin name based on the above, but the first 2 named goblins have a naming scheme that appears to follow closer to the Dynamis Goblins from FFXI instead of the open world ones. The named goblins in FFXIV are: Sweetnix Rosycheeks and Haughtpox Bloatbelly. You can compare with some of the old Dynamis Goblin NMs from FFXI:
While the decriptive title on these may or may not be related to the main name, the main name is almost always first then the descritive title. Also the descriptive title is in a different format of adjective(?) then noun. I will assume the purpose of "ix" and "ox" are the same for FFXIV as they are for FFXI. The last thing of note is that the last part of the descriptive title is almost always a body part.
The 2 named Goblins in FFXIV appear to follow the FFXI Goblin NM scheme, but I dont particularly see an obvious link between first names and descriptive names. They do end in "ix" or "ox" which would make Sweetnix, male and Haughtpox, female. They also have the adjective and then noun combo for the descriptive name. And both their descriptive names end in body parts. So if this is the direction they will take with other NM and NPC goblin names, then I'll need to change my name to fit the correct naming convention when I make my new character.
Thoughts, opinions, snide remarks? In the mean time, I guess I'll need to figure out a new name.....
TL,DR: LOVE GOBLINS, SOMETHING SOMETHING NAMING, BLAH BLAH I WAS BORED
