I normally choose default names from "The Forbidden Series" games (note: not technically a FF post)

Not technically, no. But it's very close to pushing it though.

I choose the character that looks the coolest, then use my name. I give the hottest female character my wife's name. Usually the others get the default name because I'm not too creative with names. For games that make you name the characters, I base it off their class or abilities, like Waka the Wizard, or Theo the Thief. For Shining Soul II I named some of the characters the secret names that give items or bonus stats.

I tend to go with the Romanized versions of the Japanese names - Prim rather than Paige, Ruin rather than Rwinn, Bloodstar rather than Armand...

Heh, i always think up of some name for them, as most default names suck arse.

Wizards and Mages most often end up as Salem or Merlin. Most times i'll have Kayne for a female, dunno why. If it fits, archers are usually called Xachariah after the blind archer in Torment. Then if i'm bored animal names come in, such as Hawk and Wolf (yay uncreativeness!), and other things. Bob is also an excellent choice for when i can't think of anything else.

And if ever there is a Cat-girl, its Casey.

I named Armand, "Kahvi", Eric, "Rayje" and Zach, "Shiro".

I really can't think of good names for the others....

I'd like the ninja's default name better if I could add the word 'California' in front of it.

It's 'Raizen.' I just prefer to go with the default names.

I've named my ninja after the nickname I've gained online... 'Sai.' Usually I just name my characters after the strange little names I come up with out of nowhere.

Trouble is, the default names in the non-JP versions are more of what the translators intended, rather than the creators.

In general, I name characters in RPGs after anime characters. I can get pretty silly with it sometimes. The last time I beat Eye of the Beholder (GBA), it was with a party named after the Bottle Fairies (Sarara the fighter, Kururu the mage, Chiriri the cleric, and Hororo the thief).

The priestess I'm playing currently is named Suzuna.
