How do you pronounce AEon's name?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
I have heard that you say AEon's last name like "flu." Does anyone know where I can get documentation of this?

Well, I always thought it was pronounced like the flux capacitor in back to the future...

Well, the show's characters pronounce it 'Flux', and the dictionary agrees with this. Basically, you're wrong.

Strictly on the last name, I would say it's pronounced 'FluhX'. Being, as I am, in a Latin class this semester, I cracked the big Latin dictionary. 'Fluxus' is the participle form of the verb fluere, to flow, thus meaning a flow or a flowing. The first U is short, and the X is pronounced. Latin words never have silent letters, unless they've come to us through French.
I can't comment for sure on Aeon, since that's from Greek. Although if I saw that word in a Latin text it would be pronounced, 'I-on'...

Wouldn't you just go by how Trevor Goodchild's pronunciation of her name, after all, he does eat, breathe and love(hate) Aeon...
