Well now that explains why in FF9 Zidane was like "Neither a Cloud or a Squall can take you from me." I just thought that it was a reference to the characters when I was younger.

And Megaman has a dog named Rush, which is a Canadian band.

Samus. That's the only name you'll hear. Samus. It means the end and the death. Samus. I am Samus. Samus is all around you. Samus is the man beside you. Samus will gnaw on your bones. Look out! Samus is here.

This is what I immediately thought of when I saw the name Samus. Samus Aran came second.

Zelda is named Zelda after one of the wife of one of the main designer's friends.

Miyamoto actually named Zelda after F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife Zelda

"Hearing of American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife Zelda, Miyamoto thought the name sounded "pleasant and significant".[22] Paying tribute, he chose to name the princess after her, and titled his creation The Legend of Zelda."

when i was little and first played FF8 i thought Squall looked like a Rolf and the name fit so perfectly i've never been able to call him anything else

The first one's bullcrap. Zelda in katakana is Zeruda. Also, Celes is named after the asteroid Ceres, which in Japanese can be romanized either way.

The title of the Metroid series was originally used to describe the hero, and was created by fusing the words "Metro" and "Android" together. One of the developers thought that Samus' suit looked like an android and that her traveling around underground was like taking the city metro.

No one mentioned it yet, so Tidus actually doesn't have to do with tide. It comes from the Okinawan word Tida, meaning sun. Yuna means moon in that language, also.
