Sephiroth is the "Hot Name". If you see it, it's an automatic win lol

More than likely it falls under "Intentionally mispelled knockoff" because they're all Sefiroth/Sepphiroth/xSephirothx etc.

Well, you'll get that 1st win out of the way real quick, but once "used", the hot name is no longer available. Then, you have to start actually marking the card. I mean, if they put Sephiroth on the card it may as well have been in the free space since there's going to be one everywhere. Smiley: lol

They forgot name that use variants of the x or double x's so I call this a fail. Examples... xXSandmanSlimXx or xCainx

Ok, we'll call this the "Wild" name. See any variation of xName Herex and you can dab any other name for free.

ETA: For example... I have no idea what Homestuck is, so if I saw xYour Mommax I would dab Homestuck right away.

Pretty much any reference to Game of Thrones is an automatic win... also any reference to Cloud, Sephiroth or Tifa Lockheart will do the same.

I like this game!

I'll be pointing out as many as I can in LS chat on the 27th!

I wonder if SE will be strict at all with names starting in open beta. I know they didn't seem to have any restrictions as far as I could tell up to this point. I know Blizzard tries to keep lewd names out of WoW as much as possible, and they try to keep you from using trademarked movie names (Skywalker, etc.).
I've seen a ton of openly lewd names in the FFXIV beta up to this point, so I wonder if they will nip it in the bud for the 'real' client.

I swear, every fifth person I saw was named after a GoT character.

They could just swap the r to an n and give their baby a perfectly normal first name.

The bingo board kind of makes me want to make a character named Mr Pig in reference to Pumba from The Lion King.

In XI I ran with some friends who had characters named "Husband" and "Wife". I thought it was pretty ingenious especially when they would shout at each other using auto-translate. Then I met their mules Myson and Minime.

Well, I must say I'm guilty of using video game character names (even plan on using two in FFXIV, eventually), but mine are usually obscure, in that only a handful of people would know/remember who they are. I always like giving the "nobodies" a new face.

However, being a Final Fantasy game, not just Sephiroth, but ANY Final Fantasy main hero/villain will probably be well-represented. Besides Sephy, I also expect to see a lot of Terra Branford and/or Celes Chere, a lot of Vincent Valentine, probably a few people named Onion Knight, a bunch of Snow Villiers/Lightning (wearing their outfits, naturally), probably a male Miqo'te named Red XIII...a Lalafell and a Miqo'te have a kid, who becomes Zidane Tribal... *cough*

I think "Whatchugunnadobout Mylongasscharname" has been the most original I've seen yet. Saw it in 1.0.

I'm gonna miss the beta, all those character names people knew they weren't going to keep.

My 1.0 char has an original name but there's a chance that my new char may not. I may use a last name from the Malazan book series. I doubt anyone would notice it anyway. I gave my P3 char the last name Delat.
