Goblin Naming Conventions?Follow

So I originally made up a name for my character following FFXI's Goblin naming scheme.

Names like:
Goblinsavior Heronox
Wyvernpoacher Drachlox
Mysticmaker Profblix
Soulstealer Skullnix

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:
Anvilix Sootwrists
Elixmix Hooknose
Humnox Drumbelly
Whistrix Toadthroat

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.

For example:
Piratix Crossbones
Nerdrox Sharpbrain
Slutrix Sloppycrotch

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

I figured Dynamis NMs are proper first and last names while world NMs are given titles with a first name. Goblinsavior Heronox, for example, isn't "Goblinsavior" on a first name basis. Heronox therefore has a second name, but it is not stated. It is also possible that the Dynamis NM naming convention is archaic, taking into account the presence of ancient currency and all that.

We also know some NPC goblins have no stated second name: Bluffnix, Muckvix, etc. SE has the capacity to give NPCs dual names, so...

Consider also that some Elvaan have a single stated name, while other, more elite elves have an ostentatious first name, last name and middle initial.

Maybe it's a caste system? A single name is for freegobs, laborers and tradesgobs, dual names for gobs who hold (held?) positions of power, and titled names reserved for the most exalted and/or heroic of gobs.

LOL a caste system. Good stuff Almalexia!! Seriously though, you do bring up a good point about Dynamis Gob names being more archaic and representative of a older time. An age when Goblins were meaner and last names involved your favorite body part.

Here are some more:
Fartnox Stinkybuns
Groovmix Twinkletoes
Stealix Padfoot
Snotlix Drippynose
