I pronounce it Aeris because I understand how Japanese pronunciation functions.

More like it has nothing to do with you understanding Japanese, you're actually just wrong.

I will always call her Aeris, since that was her name in the PS1 game, it seems weird that they are now calling her Aerith. Aeris sounds much better.

Aerith is canon while "Aeris" isn't.

My 2 copies of the original PS1 version,and their manuals say her name is Aeris Gainsborough. Calling her Aerith, is like DC Comics re-conning Batman to Batmon.

It's not as if English translations of the Japanese language have ever been wrong. /s

She has been Aerith since KH1. It’s not a recent change.

If you don't actually know and is not just trolling, trying to piss people off or just being plain old ignorant: When the original came out, the translator translated her name the wrong way i.e. a mistransliteration, and since it was the 90s, communication about the error wasn't fast enough and so it remained Aeris until KH.

So what? In my copy of Crisis Core she's referred to as Aerith Gainsborough. In KH1 and every other official source since at least 2001 her name is Aerith Gainsborough. Terrible and irrelevant analogy.

So they misspelled her name in spinoff games, what is your point?
