What is Freya? I don't own the game, so I wouldn't know.
- I just got the wildest idea ever! Okay, listen... Pretend that this was a Wikia about Final Fantasy. Now, pretend that among the many articles on that wikia, was one about Freya Crescent. Then imagine that you were able to find the article about Freya. And here's the wild part! Read it! o_O Many of the questions you've posted so far on various talk pages could have been answered by simply reading the respective article or by searching on google for approx. 2 minutes. I suggest that you do so the next time around --Hecko X 01:41, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
- LOL, that question is answered in the first line of the article, which you must have gone to in order to create this talk page! --SmegHead 03:49, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Sorry. I really didn't mean to upset anyone. If I REALLY annoy you that much, why don't you just tell me?
- Think of it this way. You have an abundance of information at your fingertips, all you have to do actively is look for it (About the Internet in general). In this case, all the information about the character Freya from FFIX has been collected and put into one article, and most questions about her can be answered by simply reading it. Expecting someone else to do it for you and isolate a partial because you didn't read it yourself (for whatever reason) is rather selfish, and that is what you did. Had it been a situation in which a lot of information overlapped and the reader would have to have some kind of gaming experience in order to understand it or if it contradicts something else you where sure of was correct, I would be able to see why someone would ask, but other than that, it's simply a case of being lazy. And you asking like this fits the latter scenario. So next time, please read the article before asking a question. --Hecko X 22:58, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
Ok. Next time, instead of being stupid and asking everybody, i will look first. Thanks for telling me how annoying i was.
Okay, I won't play rollback with an admin, but I believe the origin of the name is pretty blatant. I didn't know the name Freya was a common name, but, given my circumstances, I'll just have to take your word for it. The thing is, no matter how common the name is, that is, no matter how many people are named so, the fact remains that they are all named after the Norse goddess Freyja. Just like the people named Arwen that are all named after the character in J. R. R. Tolkien's mythos.
Of course, you could argue that all the people named Peter are named after the apostle and we don't make such a fuss about it... and you would be partially correct. What would make the difference between Peter and Freya is that the origin of the latter is by far less known than the origin of the first.Is Freya really a common girl name?
I knew a girl called Freya, so it's at least a real name.
The point is thought that you can call your daughter Freya and not get odd looks from people. It's an acceptable name in English speaking countries.Also, I'm pretty sure most people know the name Freya is from the Norse Goddess. Etymologies/name origins are only for very bizarre names I'd think.
Like Cinna's name? :P
Yeah, but I doubt he's named after the Shakespearian character, since there are no similarities.
You could mention it in the trivia section, if it's important to you. If there isn't already a trivia section, make one. And Diablo is correct, it is a fairly common girls name, especially here in Scandinavia (duuh). Also, the Japanese spelling of Freya Crescents name seems to be based on the Danish/Swedish/Norwegian way of pronouncing it.
No, he is the son of Lucrecia Crescent but Hojo never told Sephiroth his mother was Lucrecia, he told Sephiroth that his "mother" was Jenova. If he has a last name it's problably Hojo last name, but it's never stated.
OK just wondering thanks for clearing that up(I thought they were related I'm retarted. :(-Neoshadow147
Most of the translations of the Japanese sites for IX state that Freya is a "nezumi". Upon looking that up, I found out about a mythical race of rat-people. Anybody want to talk about Nezumi vs. Burmecian? From what I can tell, "nezumi" is species and "Burmecian" or "Cleyran" are nationalities, like a human can be American or Canadian. Does anybody have any documentation that's indisputable? Thanx 126.96.36.199 01:39, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Just did a quick Wikipedia search. It said 鼠 nezumi literally means "rat" or "mouse". So yeah, I guess that's just the Japanese word for rats or mice. I don't know a thing of Japanese, btw. Just guessing.
Two other female dragoons? Edit
It says on the Trivia that there are two other female dragoons... who are the other two? All I can think of is Fang. 188.8.131.52 08:53, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
