    Dancing Chocobo How do YOU pronounce Cait Sith?

    I know how it's supposed to be pronounced, aka all gaelic and trout, but how do YOU pronounce it?

    I'd probably say "kate sith" but for years I'd call him "cat sith". 'cause, y'know, he's a cat.

    I covered my eyes, pushed the "End" key on the keyboard, and present you with

    Cate (as in Blanchett) Sith (as in the bad guys from Star Wars).

    Let's see how I stacked up.

    Huh.

    I don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced, but we all seem to agree it's the short A and the short I.

    Kite Scythe sounds like an alias for Magus from Chrono Trigger.

    This is one of those things where I disagree with how things are translated, even if they are not just from the Japanese. If they wanted English speakers to pronounce things a certain way, the translation should have been adapted to that pronunciation style. They should have done it with Tidus, Aerith, and apparently Cait Sith

    Romanization and its equivalent are all retarded in this regard

    Cait Sith and Cat Sidhe are normal Western versions of Cat Shee. It means still exactly that. Aerith can never be written differently in Japanese and Tidus' writing would have taken away the meaning if Tida was not used. Still Tidus is meant. Normally we just need to take a look at the Japanese manuals and we know what was meant (Like Aerith, Cayenne and such).
