Poll
Do you now pronounce it "Kahtee" or "Kaytee"
Kahtee
Kaytee
      218 answers
Poll created by coyotemoon722


So Damon or Lukas or someone came out and said Kati Jones is pronounced Kahtee. Do you now call her by that name, or will you continue to call her Kaytee? I know xpiredsodapop wants to way in on this important, pressing issue in the world of Netrunner.

Until there's a Netrunner movie, it's whatever you want it to be.

I was pronouncing like 20 Game of Thrones characters names wrong for a long, long time.

I never even imagined it was pronounced with a short "a" sound until I was at a tournament about a year ago and heard somebody pronounce it that way. I posted about it here at the time and had a few people say they agreed -- but only a few. I certainly didn't change my way of saying it, as I thought it was borderline mockable.

But I am interested in pronouncing things the correct way, which is why I will pronounce ChiLo as "SHY-low" rather than any of the other abominations that people have come up with. So I will likely adopt this odd-sounding way of pronouncing Kati.

I suppose it does make sense not to have a Kāte and a Kāti. They do sound quite alike.

But come on, guys: Kate, Kati, and Kit? Can't we come up with some different female names?

Damon named her after his friend and it's Kahtee but nobody says that.

Clearly some of us do, judging by the poll

If you have to ask, you may refer to her as "Ms. Jones", thank you very much.

Wow that must get cumbersome and off-putting to your opponent every time you load that card with credits.

It's clearly pronounced Kay-tee. I've never heard of "Kati" being pronounced with a short-A.

You left out the other half of this story, where Lukas says he created the card too, and he says her name is "Kaytee."

I wasn't aware of the other half of the story. And regardless of who created the card, Damon has a friend named Kati Jones and she pronounces that name Kahtee.

I've never seen Lukas claim to have named it. If you watch the Worlds Stream the FFG staff all seem to say Kahtee, it's very strange.

I actually have a friend named Kati. Kay-tee, that is. And she plays Netrunner (or used to play - haven't seen her at game night in a month). So that's how I'm going to pronounce it, Word of God be damned.

Kahtee. I've always pronounced it that way, to some people's confusion.

To go back to early primary school, 'a' is pronounced 'ah' normally. It gets modified at 'ay' if there's an 'e' or 'y' in two letters time.

Katherine = Kahtherin
Katy = Kaytee
Kati = Kahtee
Kate = Kayt


Just IMHO.

Is there any video evidence of Damon saying Kahtee? I've looked and never found anything.

I don't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure I've heard him say it Kah-tee in different interviews (team covenant?) and maybe at worlds.

[obligatory trolling comment about how we should be discussing something else/insulting anybody for caring about this issue]

Also, Kaytee
