    Zi-DAHN. Just like in Dissidia. It's pretty much canon at this point.

    I say Zih-dane. But it's actually more accurately what Fynn and Mirage have said. I just started playing the game at first when I was 13, and I can't get that pronunciation out of my head.

    It's kind of like Queen Brahne is BRAWN like she's BRAWNY because she's massive, but she'll always be Queen Bran in my head.

    I always pronounced it Zi-Dane. I thought it was weird that they pronounced it as Zi-Dahn in Dissidia.

    Considering the Japanese pronounciation does not end with "e-i-n", yes, exactly like that soccer guy. His name also does not start with "Za-i" so that one is also obvious.

    That's exactly how they said it in Dissidia. minus the French accent, of course.

    Put "Zi" in front of it.

    There you go.
