I figured it will be quite interesting to create a thread wherein the significations and implications of the Claymore names are to be addressed. Moreover, if you think that the name has a possible impact on the plot, please share and let us know your opinion. So don't wait and just post away. - Ancy
I find Octavia to be a very beautiful name. Besides, like Ryus mentioned, it might be that Yagi was inspired by the names of prominent females. In this case was inspired by Octavia, a strong appreciated woman throughout the Roman empire. She was the fourth wife of Marc Antony and the grandmother of emperor Caligula...a pretty important female, if you'd ask me...

I like the name... then again I just loved her character on the HBO tv series Rome.
Though admittedly they VERY edited her character from the historical Octavia.

I'm not saying the name's horrible but there are more beautiful roman names
I for example would have given her the name Aurora. Aurora is, imo, a very beautiful name and would suit that girl, since she's kinda cute
octavia looks very smexy, TSS seems to be just around the corner, ah this feeling of elation in the brief moment before release, I'm getting all hyped:
Aurora is also a good choice, since it is inspired by the name of the Roman goddess of dawn, who was announcing the arrival of her sibling..Sol, also known as the sun. Yet, this name is often associated with Aurora Borealis, which implies the beauty of the northern lights and which is not to be feared, but rather admired. Therefore, I think that name is unfitting for an AO, unless Yagi reinvents its association. However, it will be very interesting to learn about his associations and interpretations, that if he ever decides to select this particular name for an AO. Good pick, tho
No! You guys are all wrong. Here's a list of beautiful claymore character names:
Octavia is also such a beautiful name...very fitting for her looks too

Gertrude? omg lol no please, that is so stuck up 50s it is hard to bear. At least I personally associate it with that time's bigot German society - though maybe it sounds exotic to a foreigner, dunno. Gretchen I could live with for the Faust reference although it likewise is an antiquated name ... Raymonde is way to masculine sounding.

on second thought I also take issue with micheline, I would always expect her awakend form to look blown out of proportion:
