How do you spell "Eris"?
« on: January 30, 2015, 09:48:47 am »
I've been trying to figure out how "Eris" is spelled in greek. But unfortunately wikipedia doesn't say and google translate keeps changing its mind as to the greek spelling. The most legitimate looking rendering it's given me is "Έρις" but I don't know if that's right, do any of you?

Yeah.

I possibly should trim it a bit, but I can't decide on what part.

Epsilon Rho Iota Sigma

What's interesting about this is that I've been listening to Skeptic's Guide to the Universe from the beginning, and that includes the time that Eris was known temporarily as Xena, and I just got to the bit where Eris was named. I got to the one today where Phil Plait said that it's pronounced Eeris but people will mispronounce it Ehris. I thought to myself, but isn't it spelled with an epsilon?
