NAME ORIGIN
    Earth is the name given to soil and dirt, the dry surface matter of our planet. It is one of the four classical elements present in the old world mythologies. The word comes from the Old English word eorthe. An elemental is a being of energy attuned with one of the classical elements. The word comes from the Latin elementem meaning "rudiment, first principle, matter in its most basic form".
    The Final Fantasy Origins name for this enemy, Gnoma, comes from the mythical creatures known as gnomes. Gnomes were believed to be diminutive little men and live within the earth. The medieval alchemist, Paracelsus, described gnomes as earth elementals in his writings. The word gnome comes from the Greek word genomos meaning "earth-dweller".
