In the wake of KH 1.5 and all the 358/2 Days related glory that came with it, I have decided to talk about something I have been meaning to talk about for a while - Xion’s name.
Now, "Neni," you might say "Hasn’t the topic of the symbolism behind this name already been talked about again and again, over and over?"
Well, yes, it is true, that meanings like “Shion”, the flower of remembrance and “Shio”, tide (And also, just so you know it, “Salt”) have been covered over and over. However, one meaning has, interestingly, never been touched by any analysis I have read yet. The fact that, in japanese, Xion’s name is spelt and pronounced identically to “Zion”.
