"Aerith/Aeris -- am I going crazy?"

So, back when I first bought FFVII (English version) in '97, I could have sworn that Aerith's default name was 'Aerith', not 'Aeris'. That's how I've always remembered her name and was the reason why I was surprised when people started calling her Aeris.

So, does anyone here know if there was an earlier batch of NA FFVII copies which had 'Aerith' as her default name instead of 'Aeris'? Or is my brain reconditioned across the years, knowing the correct pronunciation? I would have checked out my original copy but it's gone now (along with my original PS1).

Agreed. I don't know which came first but "Aerith" sounds like you have a lisp

I bought FFVII Day One when it first released and my copy had "Aeris." I actually had the opposite happen and was shocked when I saw it spelled "Aerith" on the internet.

Aeris was the first name on the first copies of FF7, Aerith came later ( I think they started using that in Kingdom Hearts and whatnot ).

iirc there was an early demo where she was named "Aerith".  I may just be making that up completely though.

This.

...and on that note, I'm sticking with Terra. Tina seems too mundane.

Yeah, but you're a talking squirrel who's pretending to be a doctor.

Seriously though, so first batch of NA FVII copies did have Aeris? Damn, I wish I still have my FFVII CD. I wanna make sure I'm not going senile or something.

I know how they work



Mine said Aeris, but I got my copy after the PC version was already out, so I'm not sure if it was first batch or not.

Growing up my friend's cousin had a Day One copy and I only ever saw "Aeris."

I was at a friend's house the day FFVII came out and his dad bought it for him. Her name was Aeris in that copy as well.

Naw, when I got the game, I was at the stage of my life where I rename all characters into myself, my friends, and all that shiz. So I remember seeing Aerith and going, "Naw mang, you're gonna be my crushie! Tee-hee~ *giggle and renames*"

It's you guys' fault



Tifa is totally a better crushie I MEAN

yeah I had Aeris too.  I don't think Aerith took hold in the Anglosphere until Kingdom Hearts although it is supposedly the "intended" romanization.  I don't care, it sounds like you have a lisp.  Aeris for lyfe yo
