Duh. (What's in a name)

Square's slightly off-kilter yet apt use of names amuses me -- contrariwise, there's also the extremely random Laguna and Irvine, which happen to be the two closest cities to mine. Methinks somebody took a couple of darts to a map of California and/or chose them under the "Let's pick names that are barely pronounceable to native Japanese speakers!" method that spawned Zell, Quistis, Squall, and Loire.

But I digress, as usual.

Point. Here it is? Ah yes.

Auron = "gold". No, actually, Aurum = gold, and Auron is a Latin word with Greek ending tacked onto it.

I assume everyone knows what his name means, and then I suddenly realize that not everyone gets Latin shoved through their pores in school anymore. So, just in case that had never clicked, there you are.

Why am I not finishing writing this chapter? Argh.
