Location Names

These lists are dumped straight from the ROMs.

Some names vary based on what the player has named certain characters; these are listed with the character names in {}.

民家 Private House Residence
{Crono}の家 {Crono}'s House {Crono}'s house
{Lucca}の家 {Lucca}'s House {Lucca}'s house
ゴブの家 Gob's House Gobb's house
 Most likely the above was meant for the friendly goblin's house in Medina, but it's just another 'private home' in game.
トルース町の宿屋 Truce City Inn Truce Inn
まきがい亭 Snail (shop/eatery name) Snail Stop
永遠のいこい亭 Eternal Rest (shop/eatery name) Eternal repose
さざなみ亭 Ripple (shop/eatery name) Breakwave Pt.
 The names Eternal Rest and Ripple aren't used, so it's anyone's guess what they are.

ロボット村 Robot Village Robot village
 A leaked prerelease version of the game has a location on the A.D.2300 map that looks like a colloseum. Could that have been the Robot Village? No location in the final release seems to match.

 Singing Mountain does not exist in the final release, but a likely candidate was found on the B.C.65 million map in a leaked prelease, as was a mixed cave and mountain area that is a probable match. The music for the area also appears on the official sound track.

海底神殿ビマーナ Ocean Floor Temple Vimanam Ocean Palace
 Since you can't walk to the Ocean Floor Temple from the map, the entry above is never used, but it's there.
 And thanks to Google searches, guesswork, and cross-referencing, I've finally figured out what ビマーナ means. It's a style of (Asian) Indian architecture used in many Hindu temples. In English, it's written 'Vimanam', and the term 'Sikhara' refers to the same thing. Also see Wikipedia.

 Though you can't walk to Lavos's shell, it still has an entry in the list of place names.

Monster Names

Like the place names, these are dumped straight from the ROMs.

The current version of this table was translated without looking at the monsters, so I might be overlooking some very obvious things.
