    Default How do you pronounce Beoulve?

    I've started playing Tactics for the very first time and I've noticed I've been calling it "Bee-oh-vull" in my head. This is clearly wrong - the l is before the v, what the smurf brain! - and I need someone to correct me. How is it properly spoken?

    I used to pronounce it as Bay-loove, but I guess it's really Bey-ulve.

    Edit: It's actually pronounce Bayolve. Delita says his name @ the 20:06 mark in this video.

    That's the same for me.

    I have a bad habit of pronouncing things in my head in ways that don't make any sense.

    Huh, apparently I was always pretty close to the correct pronunciation according to the video -- certainly far closer than I would have guessed (I used to say "Bay-yulv" instead of "Bay-ohlv"). Like Velo, for very strangely-spelled names, my brain has a bad habit of just picking a very simple but completely nonsensical pronunciation and sticking with it. (e.g., for FF7's Gelnika, somehow originally getting "gah-link-ah" out of that)

    Same here and my friends and I all pronounced Shinra as Shrina for a good while as well.

    As to the OP I've always had it in my head as Bay-oh-va-lee. No idea why, just always have. I don't know if I've ever actually heard anyone else say the name before.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.
