The proper pronunciation ik-SY-en. Ixion is named after a character from Greek mythology who was invited to Olympus, but was punished for being a poor guest by being struck by lightning, before being bound to a winged fiery wheel that was always spinning. His son from the aforementioned actions eventually became the sire of all centaurs, which were also called Ixionidae, hence being a horse in FFX. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ixion
