Because of their prevalence and semi-integration into the nations of Vana'diel, studies of Goblins have been undertaken to better understand their lifestyle. Of some interest is Goblin naming conventions—which appear to be rather strict. An "-ix" ending on a goblin's name designates it as a male goblin while "-ox" is for female goblin names.
When Goblins are born, linkpearls are inserted, by incision, behind their ears, allowing goblins to communicate with their minds across Vana'diel. The Goblins have a number of different channels, such as those about weather, but they are high frequency so adventurers are unable to hear them.
The Moblins of Movalpolos, considered a tribe of Goblin, have evolved sufficiently for them to be considered a different species.
They follow a less strict naming suffix, where [a,e,i,o or u] is combined with [c,k or q] (such as Packapic or Megomak).
