Well, having her named Tina, would be like having a main character called Jennifer. Like when they named Lightning "Clare Farron", I didn't like it. It's too common, and Terra sounds more mystic and fits her better. In my opinion, of course.
Can I use this image in a music video I'm making? It's an orchestral remix of Terra's Theme and I thought a slideshow of artwork would be nice. I would link to your DA account while the picture was up.
...Wow... THIS is the top one on the entire freaking "Terra Branford" search, you have the original picture design (blonde hair, clothing... From Amano's original work. With sprites, it was too hard to have 2 blondes, so Terra became a green-haired girl because of her magical and different background...), AND you have the ORIGINAL JAPANESE NAME for her listed. Tina is common in America, but not in Japan. They chose an uncommon name. For America, they had the same reason to change it: exotic name. Terra is a mystical name and the Latin word for "Earth", so they chose that.
