I've been saying "in (as 'come in') - is (rhyming with hiss)". I'm not sure if this is correct How do you say Inis?

It should be pronounced as "Innish", but call it what you want

When you step outside to take the trash out, and your kids are jokesters and they lock the door behind you, then you're standing at the front door yelling "LET ME INIS HOUSE!"

That's how I pronounce it.

As someone who used to be a fluent Irish speaker, I agree with Ori and Colm. It's an Irish word for 'island'.

It's also the Welsh word for Island. Probably more appropriate to say it's the old Celtic word for Island.

Not quite. Ynys is the Welsh for island, with a different pronunciation. And the game is clearly set in the Irish myths.



Pronounced: un-iss
