Caius - how is it pronounced??
 
This name is driving me nuts! I can't get a straight answer online how it's pronounced.

Is it keys, kai-us, k-ah-us or some other way?

Most places show it like keys, but some are saying otherwise.

Kes and I were just disagreeing about this the other day ;) It seems that it depends on which origin you are looking at. She has seen it pronounced Kai-us (which makes the most sense) and I saw it pronounced keys. I'm thinking that you can pronounce it however you want....most people will probably go with the Kai-us pronunciation.

"Kai-us" is the Roman pronunciation (a variant of Gaius). "Keys" is the Greek / Latin pronunciation.

Ahhhh, thanks for all the input, and for the background info Kes.

I really like it prn. kai-us but saw it was prn. keys on so many baby name sites.
