This is a case of Japanese not translating 1-1 with English, and late 90s translators basically winging it because the market for Japanese media hadn't truly hit its stride yet, so they weren't worried about getting everything right.

They were worried. They thought Woolsey sucked, according to him, and they wanted something more "official".

At about 48 seconds he clearly says "Aeris" a couple times. And in the very beginning of the video.

If they didn't have a "th" equivalent in their language, they wouldn't have made her name Aerith. It was purely to appeal to western audiences who say "Earth" in the English language.

Japanese people call her Aeris.

The game is called BASU BY SURIPU, "birth by sleep" was purely to appeal to western audiences who say "birth" and "sleep" in the English language.

The character is called Sefirosu, if they didn't have a "th" equivalent in their language, they wouldn't have made his name Sephiroth. It was purely to appeal to western audiences who say "Sephiroth" in the English language.
