It's obviously a euphemism.

(..paternal horn? huh? Doesn't sound familiar to me...)

in the NiD soundtrack its "Paternal Hone" the word hone means: to bring something to a state of increased intensity, excellence, or completion, especially over a period of time.

Hone was a typo.

Paternal Horn is about the feelings of fondness towards ones father, it's about Claris' dad. Horn as in instrument and Paternal as in parently.

Even if it does sound pervy XD;

That would be so, however since that time the official soundtrack now lists the song as "Paternal Horn". While hone is indeed a word, it was a typo likely reflecting a Japanese pronounciation.

That's my guess, it's just that Claris's dad figures into her story approximately 0 percent. Otherwise it just makes me think of giant floating trumpets..

O RITE. lol. x_x

Well, it says (right here on the good ol dot com) that Spring Valley is reminiscent of Claris's father. That explains the "paternal" part. Horn could just be the fact that it's music...I don't remember if there's a horn in the tune or not, though. I suppose horns are one of the more masculine of instruments...

@Jazz-man: Thanks for the in-depth source but you wanna help make sense of that?

Ah, point taken per the level description. Yeah, there is a horn in the music occasionally..

*still pictures giant horn that hugs people*

Makes me wonder what her dad really is...since the level and music are just so chipper and stuff, they're not the kind of mood you'd think of when thinking of a parent...to me, anyway.

Depends on the kind of parent. I mean, my dad's pretty much a work-a-holic who likes to play golf, so the music wouldn't fit him at all. Claris' dad on the other hand might be more of a happy-go-lucky type, at least if we're going by the music. I feel like I'm overanalyzing things XD

It is a penis!
(for some reason I seem to be the first person to actually say it directly?)

Sigmund Freud was ALL ABOUT the little girls being in love with their fathers and desiring a penis (not in THAT way). As I am not a woman and it is a subject which many ladies are offended by in psychology I make no claims about this hypothesis having any validity!
Anyway, I can see the song fitting with an idealized (and possibly unconscious) view of a father rather than being based on the actual man.

Oh, is there a place where we can read the original descriptions of the songs in the soundtrack? Maybe I missed it... I'd like to read that! =)

I think that's on this page:
http://nights.sega.jp/nights1/snd/nsnd/box...abox/fstra.html
They explain the meaning of the title for each song, but it's all in japanese.
But it does say that the level represents Claris's father image, and the horn refers to the one used in the song.
