Cait Sith is impressed by the cat-sìth (plural cait-shìth) in Scottish folkore, sharing his look with the fairy creature in his black and white coat. In Scottish Gaelic, cat-sìth is pronounced “ket-shee” and that is mirrored within the Japanese katakana for the character’s title – ケット・シー or “Ketto Shī”.


Nevertheless, Sq. Enix introduced on social media that Cait Sith’s title is in reality pronounced in an Anglicised manner, “Kate Sihth”. This irritated quite a lot of Scottish and Irish followers as a result of it appeared that the developer ignored the origins of the character’s title.

Along with this, the endangerment of the Scottish Gaelic and Irish Gaelic language is a big situation. The 2021 census of Scotland confirmed that 60,000 individuals communicate Scottish Gaelic, which labored out to be slightly over one per cent of the 5.5million individuals within the nation.

Within the 18th century, youngsters had been punished for talking Gaelic in faculties per the ruling of the Society in Scotland for the Propagation of Christian Data. This, along with a string of other factors, has led to the gradual disappearance of the indigenous language in Scotland.

“That is simply objectively fallacious and genuinely fairly offensive,” said one. “This isn’t a Tidus/Teedus [the protagonist of Final Fantasy 10] state of affairs that is only a actual phrase! In an actual language!”

“That is an precise Irish/Scots Gaelic time period that has an accurate pronunciation and its not this. The Japanese pronunciation is already near it, AND Cait Sith has a Scottish accent within the English dub,” argued another.

At this time limit, Sq. Enix has not made any strikes to acknowledge the criticism of its official pronunciation of Cait Sith.
