Question: if his name in mnog2 is not considered canon, how do we know that it's him? Intelligence4 (talk) 22:25, 19 March 2017 (CET)

I think Greg said he was (along with Orkahm), but I don't have access to the OGTs right now so I can't find the quote. Still, I think it's the one referenced in that piece of trivia. But really, it would be a weird coincidence if they weren't the same person, considered theit name similarities. I mean, they're basically pronounced the same way, just spelled differently. ~OnionShark 22:30, 19 March 2017 (CET)
If I recall correctly, weren't Nurhii's and Orkahm's names Nuri and Orkan respecrively until the Turaga revealed the stories of Metru Nui? As in, their names were changed either during a naming day or after their memories were whipped, but took back their names when they heard the stories? I think there is something on this in the CwGF topic, but it'd be a lot of digging... The real life reason was for copyright issues one can assume. --WOLKsite (talk) 02:57, 20 March 2017 (CET)
No, that's total bullcrap. Their pages did say that there was a name change, but they cited no source, and while searching the OGD for one I found only the one that said their names weren't canon. ~OnionShark 08:00, 20 March 2017 (CET)


the infobox says noo-ree currently, but isn't it nur-ee? as in it rhymes with jury. the uh sound definitely doesn't' make an oo sound... (nuhrii doesn't rhyme with boo ree) Intelligence4 (talk) 08:24, 16 September 2017 (CET)

Checked the encyclopedia, the NOO-ree is correct. — SurelNuva (Talk) 09:26, 16 September 2017 (CET)
haven't we determined that what the encyclopedia has written before isn't what they intended? i swear there was another edit was looking at last night that had that listed as the reason for an edit - the encyclopedia said one thing but it was wrong per greg or something with the written pronunciation and the intended one. there's loads of words in there that were said differently in the movies and other audio media...

We know that sometimes the encyclopedias aren't accurate, but unless there is an explicit contradiction, I think we have to assume that they are correct, and take precedence over audio reference because Greg wasn't always involved with those.--Harsulin's Ghost (talk) 22:11, 16 September 2017 (CET)
The different audio is not the encyclopedia's fault. It's the voice actors' fault, the encyclopedia is the basic. I made some edits because some pronunciation are ambiguous. Like "mah-TOW" (if someone doesn't now it may sound like "mah-TOH" instead of "mah-TAOW") or "ga-RI" (again, the correct is "gah-RYE" not "ga-REE") The encyclopedia's pronunciations are the correct ones, the ther media's pronunciations' could be wrong. The perfect example Lewa's pronunciations, so many people pronounce Lewa's name differently from "LEE-wah" to "LOO-ah." We should keep the encyclopedia's pronunciations as the standard, not the fan communities' or narrator's/voice-actors' mispronunciations. — SurelNuva (Talk) 22:15, 16 September 2017 (CET)

i disagree - greg isn't/wasn't the only source of canon material, so the media sources shouldn't be discounted so fast. and of all things, one of the basics that a voice actor has to do right is pronunciations - so i don't think we can discount those so fast.
