What makes you think the G is supposed to sound like a J? Aegis is an actual word, and it's pronounced as a G, the same way the TC is pronouncing it.

no, it's not. it's pronounced like a J and the ae is a long E sound

Huh, you're right. I've never heard it pronounced that way, and I follow Helenismos, it's referenced rather often.

I pronounce it like "I-geh-slash".
I guess everyone else pronounce it the other way but eh, saying E instead of Ai for me feels wrong so I'll stick to my way.
