That's been driving me crazy for years. If there's a vocal pronunciation that I missed somewhere, please show the link.

Obviously there are spoilers here for anyone who hasn't played the game, but here's all the cutscenes from war of the lions. Go to 20:04 to hear Delita's pronunciation of Ramza Beoulve. Phonetically, it's more or less in line with how I've always pronounced it. Sounds like he puts a little more stress on the "ou" part than I do. I put the stress on the "Be" part.

Take that with a grain of salt. Voice actors don't always get it right.

BAY-olv

Seems like the best way to spell it out.

One of the coolest names ever for a FF character imho

Wrong--according to that cut-scene.

I'm in the BE-olv camp.

I'm probably the only person in the history of ever to pronounce it Bowl Va.

Like Vulva, but with a B.

God, I've been calling him a twat subconsciously for almost 2 decades.

At first, BEE-allv. And then someone told me it was "Baywolf."

Josh and I have been livestreaming some FFT (we took an end of summer break but will probably resume?), which has been my most substantial exposure to the game (since I am astoundingly bad at FFT). And my pronunciation, to Josh's chagrin, is:
beh-OO-wuh-all-vuh-EH.

So I'm pretty sure you're all wrong tongue.gif

I may have been canon-wrong with my "bee-UHLV" pronunciation, but at least I got chocobo correct from the start.

And hey, put the laptop down for a while

(BOOL-vuh) for me.

I think we had a whole thread on FFT characters pronunciation years ago.

I always went with Bay-yoolv

This is a name that really went under my radar as a "contentious-open-to-interpretation-on-how-to-pronounce-it" name. It's certainly not "Cecil" or "Celes."
