- The Sefirot (often transliterated as Sephiroth) are a concept in Jewish mystic tradition that represent mankind's connection to the divine and the creation and maintenance of reality. As 'progenitor' roughly means 'creator,' Sephiroth's name is likely a reference to this concept.
- The Japanese name ゼフィロス (transliterated in-game as Sephiroth) could also be translated as Zephyrus, which is the name of a Greek god of winds. If this is an intentional parallel, it could explain Sephiroth's affinity for the lightning element.
- Given that the game is based on Norse mythology, and his title is progenitor god, Sephiroth is possibly a reference to Búri who is both the progenitor of the Norse gods and the grandfather of Odin.
