Not exactly, Fi also comes from Fierfek, and fierfek is pronounced FI-ear-fek.
Fierfek is pronounced, two syllables, as Feer-fekk. Emphasis on the first syllable. Check the dictionary.
Yes, but we don't know what Kal's intentions were when he name Fi.
We could ask KT...
No need. True Colors, the scene with Etain playing medic. Outright states that names like Niner and Fi are numerical based. Look for yourself.
Fi is high galactic for son.
I just said what it means... isn't it obvious why he calls Fi "son".
So sure are you?
High Galactic was a language often used to show respect between members of the clergy and laymen. Sarcev Quest was fluent in High Galactic.
High Galactic was also used as the language of the Imperial court and elite, as most officers from prestigious families were familiar with High Galactic.
Additionally, the language was also an ancient language used by the Jedi order. An example of this usage would be many of the names of their lightsaber forms.
1) Nowhere does it say Kal named Fi. Nowhere does it say he trained him since birth, either, and common sense would dictate that in that case the nickname developed naturally from his vode.
2) "Clergy and laymen", "imperial court", and "jedi order". No, I don't think Kal would have used High Galactic, even if he did name Fi.
3) There are two characters during the course of RC named Fi. One of them is, if I recall, a clonetrooper
. Are you suggesting a clonetrooper (and I'm willing to bet his number ended in five but I don't have my book on hand to check) was close enough to a father figure that someone would have referred to him as son? That's a stretch. Also a stretch is two different people to name two different clones -- of different classes entirely -- the same name in the Star Wars equivalent of ancient Latin. Unlikely. Fi = Five. Niner = Nine. The other Fi also = Five. Sev = Seven, if I recall correctly. It's their ID numbers.
