There are some names that I think would fit well, though I dunno if I'd name a possible child with them o_O

Lemme see... Cecil (but I'd use it for a girl), Cloud, Vincent, Glenn, Lucca, Guile, Norris... some more maybe

Names like Cecil and Vincent aren't really "video game names" per se, so much as names that have been used by video game characters. A video game name is something rare enough that you won't often see it elsewhere, and thus have a hard time associating it with anyone but the video game character in question.

There is another game name (actually a famous french drama, that I forgot the name, in which the vagrant story character's name, I believe, was based) that I find cool: Rozencrantz

Poor boy whose nickname would be Rozie o.o

Rosencrantz is actually a character from a Shakespeare drama. It was spellt Rosencrantz and not Rozencrantz like in Vagrant Story (might be something like the only translation typo/mistake in the whole game though!). Maybe it means something in German too, I don't know.

Janus sounds like a good middle name but as a first name would seem kinda odd.

I don't see why he would...in my opinion, it would be better to name your child after a knight with a gigantic, evil sword than a random message board denizen  :? .

In my opinion, Nightmare is a terrible name for the child. Good luck on getting the Mrs. to agree on a name like THAT.

It would be easier to name your kid Beatrix then Nightmare.
