I have not actually seen the scenes with full audio where his name was pronounced. All the scenes I have seen him in with audio were when he was still Axel, which I got memorized...

My daughter looked up at me the other day after writing her name and said "Got it memorized?"

Anytime she is crying or pitching a fit I tell her "Our ship runs on happy faces."

Anyway, thanks in advance...

Re: How do you pronouse Lea (formerly Axel)

It's the same way you pronounce Lee. Or, if you're familiar with the word "lea", which is the synonym of "meadow", it's exactly the same.

Lea's name was said in Days by Saix, as well as by himself at least twice in DDD (when he interrupted Maleficent, and later when he came to Sora's rescue). Goofy also said it in the secret ending of the same game.

Thanks, that's what I was hoping to hear. That's how I have been pronouncing it. Actually, I mostly still call him Axel.

I just had this lingering fear they were going to be pronouncing it LEE-uh, like the girls name. Those fears are now assuaged.

In the Japanese version the pronunciation is closet to lee uh but yeah, lee.

Mind, most names in Japanese are unisex or can be used more interchangeably than in English. "Lea" (Leh-ah) isn't strictly Japanese, but it might not be seen as a "girl's name" as they had no problem pronouncing it at way. It's the west that's sees Leh-ah as being a girls name which is why they changed it so that "Lea" is pronounced like "tea".
