I personally call her Aerith, just because that's the named I learned her under.

It's Aeris in the version I played, but it's never been a big deal to me.

I don't care what anyone else thinks. It's Aeris.

Wow, that's awesome, naming your kids after an FF character is bad***.

Well, her actual name is Aerith, so I guess it's Aerith much in the same way nobody calls her 'Valvalis' anymore. But the problem with Aerith is that you sound like you have a lisp while you say it. So I could go either way, I guess.

Both.

Yes, Both.

Take a look at various Anglicised names out there, such as Scots/Irish names as the Anglo-Saxons try to spell them. Callum for Calum, (possibly) Patrick for Padraic, Shaun for Seán, and so on.

Simply pick one to be the "Cetran" spelling, one to be the "Midgarian" spelling, and Bob Padraic's your uncle. Both.

Yeah, you're right. It's like theater/theatre, or labor/labour.

I call her Valvalis. Because it's a cooler name than Barbariccia.

On topic, though, I prefer Aeris. It sounds like a much more realistic name, and just rolls off the tongue better

And the lisp thing too.

I prefer 'Aeris'.

I hate 'Aerith'. It sounds like someone with a lisp, trying to say Aeris. It just irritates me a little.

EDIT: I see someone's already beat me to it. tongue.gif

When I am playing FFVII, it's Aeris. (I pronounce it like the zodiac sign).

In other games, and if a remake of VII ever appears, it's Aerith.

Basically, I go with what the game says, which is why I prefer accurate translations.

Aerith. I got really used to it from playing Kingdom Hearts and Crisis Core, and Aeris just looks wrong to me now. I rename Aeris Aerith when I play FFVII now.

So it seems that the Law of First Impressions applies rather well to this dispute.

It doesn't really matter whether it's Aeris or Aerith, but the official name is AERITH. Although most people don't want to sound like they have a lisp eh.gif

uhh... wasn't there already a topic about this a few years ago?

Anyway, l'm going to go with Del S on this one. Both work, it's just a spelling thing l think. Kind of like with words like color/colour, and like the name kain/kaine/cane/kane/cain/caine/etc. lt's all good.

I don't like how Aerith sounds. I say Aeris, I guess.

I've always used Aeris, thats what it was when the game initially came out and its what i've used for the past 10 years.

I also pronounce Aeris like Aries as it is the first thing that came to mind i guess.

Aerith sounds awful. Aeris sounds like a starsign. I'll go with the one that sounds better and is generated by the game for the same reason I don't call Amarant his original Salamander name.

Since I first saw her name as Aeris, I used to always say that. Now because of Crisis Core I tend to say Aerith. When I talk about CC I call her Aerith and Aeris when I'm talking about FFVII. lol. biggrin.gif

Edit!:

However now I constantly refer to her as Aerith! If I talk to my brothers (who originally started the Final Fantasy craze in our house after our Mom bought FFVII) I will say Aeris, the name I grew up with, now if talking to anyone else or particularly my friend, I say Aerith. Strange how time changes your mind. smile.gif

The name Aeris sounds appropriate to me. It's a derivative spelling of the Greek goddess of dischord. One of the sisters of Ares and the jealous soul who started the Trojan War because she wasn't invited to a party.
