Man-Let

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

Le vi
you fucking idiot
>>
>>101943185
His name is said as LEE-vi in the anime
2/10, made me respond
>>
>>101943256
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

Ravioli.

The way they pronounce it in the show.5

Except Levi ("Lee-vye") is an actual name. And it's pronounced like the name in the show.

リヴァイ
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.
>>
>>101943572
>>101943550
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
>>
>>101943694
I fucking cummed.
>>
>>101943694
Yes, it is pronounced how it's spelled. With a long E and a long I. Don't be a retard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levi

>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.
>>
>>101943694
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Levi

Wiktionary says /ˈliːvɑɪ/, or leave-eye.
>>
>>101943694
They spelled it リーヴァイ.
>>
>>101944031
No, they spelled it リヴァイ. No long "ee" at the start. /ˈɾɪvɑɪ/.
>>
>>101943899
>>101943854
>>101943837

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.
>>
>>101944209
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.
>>
>>101944209
>>101944713

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

Leave-eye.
