Hyur CG.png

The Hyur of Final Fantasy XIV have more recognizable European names, with slight modification.

Midlanders[edit | edit source]

Midlander first names are remarkably similar to Anglo Saxon, Celtic, and Briton names that appeared in medieval (pre-17th century) Europe.

Last names are usually based on professions, or locations of where they or their families lived. They may also represent a person’s outward features (i.e. brown hair leading to the surname 'browne').

Male[edit | edit source]

  • Eddard Baker
  • Petyr Stone
  • Belmont Miller

Female[edit | edit source]

  • Isolde Stark
  • Hester Skinner
  • Joyse Browne

Highlanders[edit | edit source]

Highlander first names are remarkably similar to medieval European names that have Germanic or Normandic roots.

As the Highlanders are a warring race, their last names tend to sound more...violent, as they will often adopt the colorful nicknames they have earned during battle.

Male[edit | edit source]

  • Aethlwold Hunter
  • Hunfrid Longblade
  • Lewenhart Boarsblood

Female[edit | edit source]

  • Sigberta Strong
  • Orieldis Blacke
  • Bergard Thorne

Fun Fact: Some Midlanders like to joke that because Highlander names have a very Roegadyn feel to them (in addition to highlanders being very large and muscular), that the clan is somehow "less Hyuran". Many an alehouse brawl has broken out as a result of a Midlander in his cups uttering such quips as 'Your mother was a Sea Wolf' in the presence of a Highlander. Needless to say, most of these quarrels do not end well for the instigator.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Fans have programmed a lore-friendly name generator for players to use when creating characters. As with any name generator, some of the results can be silly. Many of the Hyuran names in the list are taken from real people, such as Crosby, Truman, and Gore.
