Aeris or Aerith?

Post by XgoldenyunaX on 15th December 2010, 7:24 pm

Hi!
I've never played or watched FF 7. That is why I get confused a bunch about Aeris and Aerith. I can only guess, but is Aeris the japanese and Aerith the american/european name?
It would make scence to me because I've never seen a 'th' in Japanese.

Can anybody tell me if I'm right or what the 'real' Aerith is?

Aeris was the mistranslation of Aerith when FF7 first came out here. I think it was a mistake from reading the japanese characters, which can have several meanings. That's why she's definitely Aerith in all versions now, if you notice "Aeris" is never mentioned again ^^
Side note, she always reminds me of the chocolate bar 'Aero'

Sony Computer Entertainment America fumbled the English Translation of FFVII and Aerith is one of the many, many things they got wrong.

(e) - (a) - (ri) - (su) is the name in Japanese Katakana. "Su" is a common replacement for "th", which doesn't exist in Japanese.

Aeris is a translation at face value by just looking at the Katakana. Aerith is a translation of intent, her name being a play on the English word "earth".

In every Square (Enix) translated game or media she's been corrected to Aerith. This includes Kingdom Hearts I & II, Crisis Core, Before Crisis, Advent Children, and the like.

The correct name is Aerith. But it's pronounced the same way as Aeris.

I always called her Aeris since I don't like Aerith at all.

lol, I think square enix was stupid enough to do a mistake exactly whre you should type in her name.I once got into the debug room of the game (some screen where are trashed things and links to all other screens that appear in the game).
there, every character is called by their usual names they have right at the beginning of the game (so Cloud is still called ex-soldier) and Aerith name is really written with "th" in there

I prefer Aeirth as apposed to Aeris because I don't think of the god of war anymore XD She's much to sweet for that.

I know her name is Aerith but I grew up saying Aeris and it's too hard to switch! xD

I always call her Aeris as that's what she was called in the PS1 :) So I got used to calling her that.

I've always called her 'Aerith' since i saw Advent Children before i knew about ANYTHING FF or KH related...which was only a few years back ¬_¬ I've gotten used to Aerith now, so i don't call her Aeris. However, if i see someone calling her Aeris i'll just ignore it and read Aerith in my mind O.O

Doesn't really matter to me, but I call her Aeris because it's easier for me to pronounce. :'D

I've played FFVII and called her Aeris for the majority of my childhood but after Kingdom Hearts came out I started calling her Aerith and find I like that name better. I just like the sound of it.
