Made In Abyss is written in a highly semiotic, metaphorical style. Because humans are like children being thrown into the wild, it would be a disparity to not reflect that on the characters.
Otherwise it's also including silly things like calling the main town Orz after the desperation kaomoji of a man kneeling against the ground. It clearly wears its roguelike inspirations in its sleeve.
