I'll get the ball rolling:


'Kruez' is French for Cross.


The Fanelia sword has roots in Latin. "Fanal" is the Latin word meaning 'light house' or 'light stick'.


'ia' is the suffix for establishing it as a verb. "Fanel~ia" beam literally means 'light-giving' beam.


Something along those lines.....

I'll say the obvious things..

1) The whole idea of "Ragnarok", "Asgard" and such came entirely from Norse mythology.

2) Longinus is the name of the Soldier in Christian history that stabbed Jesus with his spear.

Though, it's kind of weird how many games (especially RPGs) have names and ideas and places from different mythologies.

Erm Val, I thought "crois" or "croix" was French for cross?

Anyway... back on topic... to speak to Kohak - I remember on the older LC board Rai and I discussing that world religions and mythologies aside, there seems to be a central database of names that sound cool which game programmers always seem to use, e.g. some names of weapons in Riviera are also in FFTA, SS2 and "classic" RPGs like Baldur's Gate.

Haha yes but since people know Latin and it makes sense, what the heck.

Hm though this is more Yggdra I noticed the spear the Undine wields in the art really resembles the Lance of Longinus in Evangelion. With the twists and all.

Noir is French for black.
Trie means screen.
So trie noir translates as black screen.
