Comments and insights on the name Aerith: | Edit

The name " Aerith " originates from Aerith Gainsborough ( Final Fantasy VII ) - A character from the popular game Final Fantasy VII, the last known Ancient, and known for her untimely death.
The developers of the game have stated that "Aerith" is a near-anagram of "Earth". There was some debate on Aerith's name if it was Aerith or "Aeris". This was due to a mistranslation in the English version of Final Fantasy VII. Her name is confirmed to be "Aerith" which means "Earth". This is due to Aerith being a half-Cetra, also known as Ancients, who were a race of beings that could communicate with the planet. Aerith was given green-eyes to reflect a nature-y feel to her, and she is represented by flowers throughout the series.
