Is his first name Wen and last name Kinoc? I'm confused because most other human characters in the game have only one name (Tidus, Yuna, Lulu, etc). It just threw me off when I first heard Auron call him Wen.
Could it possibly be a title?Although I did notice that all of the Maesters have two names: Yo Mika, Wen Kinoc, Kelk Ronso, Seymour Guado. So maybe all Maesters are required to have two names... any opinions?
I'm personally thinking that while most characters only USE one name, they might have two, one they use, and one they don't. Think about it, when you see your friend, do you say "Hey, Joe Smith!", no, you mainly use their first name. The other possibility would be that the maesters represent different peoples, and are addressed as such. For instance, is Seymore's last name Guado? or is it just the people he represents. the "Kinoc" may be a group of people of some sort of distinction or difference in beliefs or such. Kelk is a ronso, so that would fit this idea, as he "represents" the other ronso. Just my thoughts. --Deadseraph 20:56, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
That's an interesting take. I don't know though...normally (i.e. in all past games) if a character has a last name, it is given in the game manuals and such. As far as I can tell, the species like the Guado and the Ronso are all normally called with both names (i.e. Seymour Guado, Trommel Guado and Kelk Ronso, Kimahri Ronso, etc). The humans are only ever addressed by one name and only given one name. I don't know...it's just odd. I mean, Rikku isn't called Rikku Al Bhed. Who knows, lol...
BUMP!Cos I still want and answer about this.
As with my changing the quote on Mika's article, I request a change for Kinoc too, as the current quote is a bit of a spoiler. I'm thinking more along the lines of, "That Kinoc, a maester?" "I heard that, Auron." It's humorous and keeps in with the current quote as being between Auron and Kinoc. Tia-Lewise 13:33, November 15, 2012 (UTC)
