I found it kind of funny during the the last stream how Saygo pronounced it Ru-Ai-Ri. =P

Origin of the name Rory:
Anglcized form of Ruairí (red, rust-colored). The name was born by Rory O'Conor, the last high king of Ireland, who reigned from 1166 - 1170.

So it is pronounced Ror-ee weeaboos. Kthx.

    I don't care how you pronounce it correctly because even if I know the right pronouciation I'm used to the wrong pronouciation so much I'll never use the right one. I always said it as Roo-er-ri. And I call Glas Glahbleann (or however you spell it) Glass ga-he-bin. And I call Tailteann, 'tattle-lan'.

    I gave up trying to pronounce these things right ages ago and I don't care anymore!

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

    You know, Rory seems more "weabooish" in my opinion.

    I don't do comparative scores. (I.E. This is better than X, therefore it should be a 6 instead of a 5)

    In essence, I think most anime are subpar.

    To be fair, most people are probably incorrectly pronouncing words/names in this game.

    Claimh Solais is nowhere near pronounced the way many people may think.

    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?).
