just personal curiosity really. it started out wen by brother sed he thort valefor was pronounced vail-for insted of val-a-for like i thought. then i thought "is there any other wierd ones?" so i checked it out and there were. i decided to post them just to get a 2nd opinion really.

oh btw, ive noticed that tidus' weapons have funny names. the one that made me laugh the most was razzmatazz. i laughed for like an hour! :D

One more! Tidus is pronounced as "Tee-duss" although many pronounce it as "Tie-dus"

i always call him Tee-dus but i think Tie-dus sounds nicer and cuter.

i really hated when i found out how to properly pronounce tidus.

i thought it was tide-us, but its more like tid-is (kingdom hearts)

well, the japanese pronunciation would be tee-dus, but the american would be tie-dus, but i call him tie-dus cause it sounds cuter

I used to say Tie-Dus, but then when I played Kingdom Hearts, I found out it was tee-dus, which sounds like s* but whatever

Rhi
11-18-2005, 07:55 PM
thats because they're saying it in the japanese pronunciation, which could be the 'proper' way to say it but the americans would say it tie-dus if they saw it, so would many of us british

Tie-dus! Teedus sounds like someone screaming! ???
My brother's pronunciation:
Valefor-Gordon
Ixion -Wugwug
Shiva -Porno Woman

Isn't there a Greek/Roman named Titus? That's probably why I pronounce it Tie-dus.

Shinryu (Shin-ree-you) means divine dragon judgement

Whats funny is that in Street Fighter the movie, Guile kept saying it wrong, RYE-you.

It was that way in the American cartoon too. I pronounced it wrong forever, myself. The Street Fighter anime set us all straight. But that's to be expected. It was a kazillion times better than either

Has anyone put these through one of those crappy voice synthesisers that are available. I've just put Tidus in (which I pronounce Tie-dus), and it says Tie-de-us. Quite amusing I thought, I'll put the others through later...

You can find most of the pronunciations of these online, since they are names that are based off Greek and Norwegian stories, like Ixion (iksye'un) who's name is based of of a guy that zues punished for attempting to sleep with Hera. His offspring with a fake hera gave berth to the Centaurs note the horse appearance of Ixion. And Valefor is a king of demons in hell, name pronounced Vah-leh-for. Catoblepas is actually based off the wildebeast, greek legend has that it breaths mist that turnes you into stone, but for the life of me I cant find any pronunciation online, but I think
cat-a-lopez works best.:D

I also have a friend named Titus in tie, I dont know how Tidus is pronounced Tee dus in englis.

No offence, but this thread is pretty pointless.
