    the right way... the way it's pronounced in the FFX game trailer on The Spirits Within DVD, and how JAT and the rest of the staff that worked on the game pronounce it... definitely not like the American comedian Christopher Titus, but rather like the Okinawan word Tida which means Sun which perfectly mirrors Yuna which means Night... this ideology behind their names is reflected in their sun and moon sigils/crests...

    Te-i-chouon to lengthen the "i"-da
    Tiida

    "Teeda"

    Tidus

    "Teed(uh)s"

    Fun fact: I like "Taiduhs" more. But for the question "how is it pronounced" in terms of overall and not "how do people personally pronounce it" see the above. I also used to see Taiduhs but not anymore.

    Also at thread title: Pornounce? Freudian slip?

    Tidus as you would say it in German. I guess the closest I can describe it is Tee-doose with a short oo sound.

    Got your back, man.

    I think most people agree that it is supposed to be Tee-dus.

    I think that sounds stupid so I always say Tie-dus and I will never stop saying it like that.
