I should shut up about it, but... The reason Aeris -> Aerith doesn't get a rise out of me is because SE owns the character. If they wanted to name her "SLAM DUNK" so that when Sephiroth kills her from above, Cloud screams "SLAM DUNK!", that's their prerogative.
However, beyond what I stated before (Gaelic being endangered), SE is borrowing both the name and design of the mythical Cait Sith, and giving him a Scottish accent to boot. So it's kinda weird to not honor the original pronunciation
and lowkey xenophobic of some fans to celebrate the news. Just another sad cliff note in the long history of English pushing out and erasing other cultures.
Alright, stepping off the podium.
Ahhhh SLAM DUNK, a mis-pronunciation of how she should be called - SLUM DRUNK.
