FF7:

Cloud - like the big white puffy thing

Aeris - EY (writes with "hey") - rihss First time I played I thought it was pronounced "Iris," which really would have been appropriate since she's the Flower Girl.)

Tifa - TEE - fuh

Barret - like the name Barret

Cait Sith - Kate Sith

Sephiroth - SEFF - ih - rawth. I cringe whenever I hear the chorus in OWA call him "Sephy-roth." Almost makes me glad I have the PC version... almost.

Am I forgetting anyone? (been a while since I played)

FF8:

Squall - like the word "Squall". What's up with these "Weather elements" characters? Cloud, Squall...

Quistis Trepe - QUIS-tis Truh-PAY. For a while I was pronouncing her last name like it rhymes with "tape." I'm still not sure.

Rinoa - Am I the only person who says "Rih-NO-uh?" Short i, not long?

Edea - ee-DEY-uh, like the spanish word "idea."

Ultimecia - don't even get me started. I say "Ult-ih-MEE-cee-uh", "Ult-uh-muh-SEE-uh," or "Ult-uh-meh-CHEE-uh" depending on whichever pops into my head first. (third pronounciation is Italian. I know that's probably not how it's pronounced in the game; it's the Italian part of my family's fault that I say it like that).

Seifer - I've been trying to get myself to say it "Cypher" but I can't quite break the habit of pronouncing it "Safer." "I before E" pronounciation rules, ya know?

Haven't played FFIX yet. Any other weird names I'm forgetting?

Tifa---> Tee-fah
Aeris---> Air-iss
Cait Sith---> Kate Sith
Vincent---> As the name is commonly pronounced
Sephiroth---> Seh-fur-roth (Not Sef-roth)
Yuffie---> Yuh-fee (Not You-fee)

VIII:
Squall---> Rhymes with tall
Zell---> Like Cell
Quitis---> Kwiss-tiss
Rinoa---> Rih-noah (Me too Fujin)
