When naming characters in Final Fantasy VII, you can use either hiragana or katakana letters.

The default alphabet shown is hiragana but the default name is katakana.

Hiragana also has syllables that are created by adding a small -ya, -yu, -yo immediately after a character. For example:

  • ki + ya = kya
  • shi + yu = shu
  • chi + yo = cho

See below for the full table. (Note: katakana has even more variations.)
