    You can't name your son Rawree. Name your son RURRRRY. Emphasis on the R.

    I care. Just sing it through your skulls a bit more. It will stick...unless you want to remain a weeaboo. =P

    Just because I am using an anime gif does not make me a weeaboo.

    ....seriously how does someone saying a name in a game with (basically) zero voice acting different from what you think/researched make them a weeaboo? There are multiple ways to pronounce the name across a few different texts and languages: let people pick the one they want to use in their heads or make up their own.

    Is a Goidelic (Irish or Scottish Gaelic) masculine given name. It translates as “red king”. Its Gaelic pronunciation is 'roo-ree' or 'roo-ah-ree', with emphasis on the first syllable. In English, it is typically pronounced as Rory or Roo-ray.

    So I'll go for the 'roo-ah-ree' (/Ru-Ai-Ri?).

    Seems you've missed this. So, if we do want to get technical with the pronunciation based on Mabinogi's influence, you're wrong.

    What a shocker.

    If all you can do is post a triggered gif in response to information that conflicts with your views this thread might as well be over.

    This is correct. 'Ru-ah-ree' and 'Roh-ree" are both accurate, according to the pronunciation of these Irish Gaelic speaking folks: https://forvo.com/word/ga/ruairí/ (you can hear the slight "roo-ah-ree" pronunciation in the last one. Subtle, but it's there). And as we're all aware, Mabinogi is inspired by Irish mythology, meaning the Irish Gaelic pronunciation of names in the game are most authentic.

    As I've been pronouncing his name in my standard American accent: "Ru-ar-ee" is like a very butchered americanized "roo-ah-ree" in my opinion, lol. There are so many odd names in Mabi, and I'm not terribly familiar with Irish pronunciation, so I think most of us butcher most names anyway since we read things from an English perspective.

    (Also, please don't call everybody weeaboos. It might make someone upset. :T )

    Right, some of us worked very hard to get the weeaboo title!

    Honestly i find weeaboo word to be really insulting. I only prefer otaku. :|

    I don't get why people think this way. The word weeaboo is too silly to be taken as an insult, even if it is intended to be insulting 90% of the time.

    Also, forget Fashionogi. The newest trend is Linguistinogi. If you're still dyeing/collecting clothes instead of debating the proper pronunciations of the names of various characters in the game, you're playing wrong.
