LEE-vi or Le-Ve?
Who the fuck says the first one?
Also this is completely irrelevant because:
1. His name is said in the anime, how it is pronbounced there is the correct way above all else
2. Anyone who pronounces it the first way is the same type of person yelling "NARUUUTUU" and "SASUUUUKEY" at anime cons
3. SnK is shitty and so is Levi
you fucking idiot
His name is said as LEE-vi in the anime
2/10, made me respond
I guess your hearing is fucked up.
It's pronounced the same way as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levee
which is the same as the 2nd way in OP's post
The way they pronounce it in the show.5
Mikasa a shit.
Eren x Ravioli OTP
Except Levi ("Lee-vye") is an actual name. And it's pronounced like the name in the show.
Made me respond again, fuck. 3/10
Don't respond again, you'll make me cum in ecstasy.
リーヴァイ -- REAVE-eye. /ri:vaɪ/.
Romanised alternatively as Revaille or Levi.
No it's fucking pronounced LEVI the same way it is spelled. Not Lee-vye or Le Ve or some shit.
Just fucking sound it out.
If the japs want it to be pronounced differently they should have spelled it differently
I fucking cummed.
Yes, it is pronounced how it's spelled. With a long E and a long I. Don't be a retard.
>Levi/Levy (/ˈliːvaɪ/, Hebrew
I honestly didn't think Levi was that uncommon a name. Have you seriously never heard anyone say it before? Or heard the brand of jeans? This isn't complicated.
Wiktionary says /ˈliːvɑɪ/, or leave-eye.
They spelled it リーヴァイ.
No, they spelled it リヴァイ. No long "ee" at the start. /ˈɾɪvɑɪ/.
Levi = Le + vi (TWO SYLLABLES HOLY SHIT SO COMPLEX)
Le is pronounced exactly like "Le fucking kill yourselves dumbasses"
And vi is pronounced exactly like the first letter of "Vagina, that thing you will never get"
This is not fucking rocket science.
You have just successfully pronounced /lə.və/, which is not any kind of thing, but I guess is closer to "lever" (in certain non-rhotic dialects of English) than anything else.
Unfortunately, your target pronunciation was /ˈɾɪvɑɪ/, the in-show attested Japanese pronunciation, or /ˈliːvɑɪ/, the correct pronunciation for the asserted Jewish name (as in the biblical "Book of Levi"). You seem to have missed the mark somewhat.
Oh wait, you said pronounced like the first letter. As in the name of the letter? In that case you have /lə.vi:/, which is closer to "levee" (an embankment) or "levy" (a tax) than anything else.
ITT: no one knows how to pronounce a simple name
