Outsiders won't be able to catch it.


LMAO!

Oooooo, forgive me for my "outsider" ears not clearly hearing the silent "u" at the end of "Aeris".

(There was no "u" at the end)

It's a "oo" sound, like Susano-O.


It's actually an "Ooo-oi-koo". Outsiders won't be able to catch it.

No need to be rude.


I'm not being rude. Language is a barrier that must be overcome.

This old debate again? Honestly I say both work regardless of what the actual translation is. I first knew her as "Aeris" so that's what I call her. At the same time I'm not going to correct folk for calling her "Aerith"

How about no? That sounds like "let's make everyone the same with the same language and words". That's one fresh hell that sounds like a HIVE Mind.

Found out recently that apparently the Japanese language doesn't have an equivalent of the sound: "th".

They don't call the planet "earth" so they had to adjust the sound of her name for English audiences. Or something to that degree? Her name was meant to be a play on words.

Which adds to the confusion. Because when I watched footage of the Tokyo game show, and other gameplay footage with actual Japanese people playing......when they switch to Aerith, you can hear them plain as day call her "Aeris".

Are they wrong to pronounce her name that way?


Japanese are not wrong for pronunciation of her name they created her and let Americans call her aerith

I'm kinda embarassed for you man.

You know nothing about the language yet you're trying to pass off that you do, in a very ignorant way so to speak.

Your opinion on this matter is not a qualified one.

It's like a fat person giving someone else diet and exercise advice.

No. Her name is still Aerith.

They try to pronounce it as closely as possible to that within the confines of the Japanese syllabic system.
