Alma is the main antagonist in the video game F.E.A.R. She appears to be a very creepy little girl. She appears a lot throughout the games- most of the time ducking out of sight or out of the corner the player's eye.

Alma is the name of the main character's younger sister in Final Fantasy Tactics. When I think of this name I think of her, a gentle and kind, blonde girl. Not an old woman.

From the Book of Mormon, part of the scriptures in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints. Alma the Elder was believed to be a Nephite prophet living around 173 b.c. in South America. When the Book of Mormon first introduces Alma the Elder, he is a wicked priest of the wicked King Noah who watches God's prophet, Abinadi, burn at the stake. He then repents of his wrongdoings and becomes a prophet. Alma the younger is, according to the LDS faith, Alma the Elder's rebellious son who went around with the sons of Mosiah (Mosiah II, not to be confused with Mosiah I) trying to destroy the church. Alma was struck down by an angle and had a vision where he sorrowed greatly for his sins. He and the sons of Mosiah repented and became missionaries. Alma later became the prophet.

This name was used by Edmund Spenser for a character in his epic poem 'The Faerie Queene.' Alma was a beautiful virgin whose castle was besieged by evil knights, but was rescued by Prince Arthur and Sir Guyon. She welcomed the two knights into her house. The robber knights resumed their siege, but Arthur defeated them for good by slaying their leader, Maleger.
