NameEdit

Edge Geraldine is an incorrect name. Edge is an acronym for Edward Geraldine. His name is Edge OR Edward Geraldine. Edge Geraldine is incorrect because the word "Edge" include "Geraldine". --81.36.230.94 08:22, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Its a portmanteau, not an acronym. Like "Family Computer" becomes "Famicom." or "Pocket Monster" becomes "Pokemon." But it does serve much the same function as an english acronym. The More You Know and all that. 74.132.249.206 04:49, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
Yeap. It IS Edward Geraldine. You want this to be named "Edge" or "Edward Geraldine" or "Edward "Edge" Geraldine" ? AJDurai 16:09, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

In the FFIV Advance manual it merely says everyone's first name (such as merely 'Cecil' & 'Kain) and it just says 'Edge'.
It is the same for Anthology. So all characters naming was found elsewhere. Where?  ILHI 17:54, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

So... "Edward Geraldine" or "Edge Geraldine"?  ILHI 18:01, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
FFTA2-SamuraiSprite
No because he has a surname now. And there is also another Edge, so we'd have to extend Edge, and as we have a surname, we can extend with that rather than the game.  ILHI 18:39, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree with AJDurai. Shouldn't Edward "Edge" Geraldine be "Edge" like Ffamran "Balthier" Mid Bunansa is just "Balthier"?--68.76.111.215 18:45, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

That's because that's a stupid name. :D

I still don't think it should be "Edge (Final Fantasy IV)" though. Edge Geraldine, maybe; maintains his most common name, and his surname for the extension. And then there's "Edward Geraldine", which doesn't help those unaware of his extended name. Though they would search Edge and get there from the disambig.  ILHI 19:19, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

@AJD:

Yeah, that's why. I'm guessing that's also why on my own wiki I re-fomatted the Character pages, of which there was over 300; with each one taking an hour (give or take) at a time to reformat. Yeah, because I'm lazy. I never use the amount of work I'll have to do as an excuse as I am always willing to do it. Which will take me a year speaking I have to manage other things there, and more things at other wikis. >:(  ILHI 19:52, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

... That doesn't even make sense. He is Ed'ward Geraldine. Edge Geraldine is essentially "Edward Geraldine Geraldine". But if it's canon... then yes, we should move it. 79.69.199.129 23:05, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

I don't get why Edge gets a pass with his nickname being combined with his last name when Lightning doesn't. I mean, his real name is Edward Geraldine but is widely known as Edge, so why not rename the page "Edge (Character)" or something? --FFfangirl (talk) 22:42, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Because there are different circumstances. Edge's name has been written as "Edge (Edward) Geraldine" in an official publication. We did move it to "Edge (Final Fantasy IV)", but we moved it back when that happened. JBed (talk) 22:47, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

AbilitiesEdit

umm.. may I know why the list of abilities is removed? - SilverSummonerTaLk 15:50, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

An excellent question indeed, and one I too would like to know the answer to, Born from Darkness. --BlueHighwind 20:13, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Final Fantasy IV abilities  ILHI 20:31, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
What? How does that answer anything? That link doesn't give a single bit of information from what is on the page. --BlueHighwind 20:45, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Actually, there's a link in the end of the page .- Henryacores^ 20:54, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't give all the information the ability section does. --BlueHighwind 21:10, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
FFS, why are there so many people like you? You ask a question, I give an answer and then you complain that the answer I am giving is not good enough.  I Lion Heart I 22:22, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Maybe if you had formed your answer in the form of a sentence instead of a link people wouldn't get annoyed. Diablocon 22:26, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Why? It's a one word answer. Piping it with "This is why" wouldn't change anything, or saying "because it's mentioned here" would have got the same reply. Its people's attitudes that are the problem.  I Lion Heart I 22:33, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
HAHAHAHAHA! Casting stones, are we now, ILHI? Perhaps there was a subility to your answer I did not understand - that being how that link actually answers my question. As a side note, I wasn't mad at all before your second comment.
Now, since we seem to be having six or seven conversations at once, I'll try to clear it up with a regrettably long comment. Every FFIV Character has a table listing their spells and the level they learn that spell at. Why is Edge different? Is it perhaps because some think that the other two pages cover that information already? Well, they don't. ILHI's link contains nothing of the sort (only saying that Edge learns Ninjitsu), and Henry's doesn't cover the same information. Perhaps all can be made simplier by combining information in one place. --BlueHighwind 00:41, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
Whoa! Take that out. I didn't make that page, I just linked to a page designed to cover what you wanted to see. If you're saying it sucks, then just edit it, don't come here whining. - Henryacores^ 00:46, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
Who is whining? I thought we were having a reasonable discussion over how best to cover information. I'm actually quite happy with how things are right now, though I am willing to hear suggestions otherwise. Either way is perfectly fine, as long as nothing is lost in the condensation. --BlueHighwind 00:48, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Name Edit

Edge Geraldine is incorrect. The true name is "Edward Geraldine" or "Edge" (wihtout the surname) because Edge is an acronymous of Edward Geraldine. Edge includes Geraldine. An example is J.Lo., her name is "Jennifer Lopez" or "J.Lo.", but not "J.Lo Lopez" because "J.Lo" includes "Lopez".

You are 100% correct. Unfortunately SE wrote his name as "Edge (Edward) Geraldine" in a pretty important publication-but-I-forget-which-one. 79.69.196.209 22:22, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
In the Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection gallery supposedly. I've seen the image so it's not just supposedly but factually, but I can't remember where I saw the image. 79.69.196.209 22:27, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
