Etymology[edit | edit source]

Although not named such, Baknamy resemble goblins and use some of their iconic abilities from the Final Fantasy series. A goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.
