    It would be easier to demonstrate, place your tongue in the "L" position (as in touching the roof of your mouth just behind your upper incisors) and then make a voiceless breathing sound.

    I'm reminded of Blackadder's quote about the language.
    "Here's a bangin lil' tune about takin' on The Man!"

    No offense but, that explanation is probably still too complicated for people unfamiliar with phonology terminology.

    Further searching leads me to something between "Hlamrei" or "Thlamrei". I guess my best recourse is to make sure there are no irate Welshmen around if I ever happen to discuss King Arthur with someone.

    In Fate/Grand Order it's written as "ラムレイ". Obviously whoever did that saw the l's and just wrote it as if it were the same in English when in fact "Ll" is a digraph in Welsh that creates its own unique sound, that of a voiceless alveolar lateral fricative one. As a result, Llamrei should have been something closer to "スァムレイ". Double consonants are always funny things.

    There are other examples such as "Spriggan" but like I said it's not huge deal, just something that crops up from time to time and not many would notice or care.
    Does Erukidu fit into this?

    No. I don't know where "Elkidu" came from but regardless it's not the same problem as Llamrei since that involves English and Welsh both using the Latin alphabet but having phonetic differences which the people at TM didn't seem to realise.

    Looking around the web, Elkidu seems to just be a TM thing as I can't see anywhere else in JPN using it. Maybe it was a creative choice, maybe a typo that ended up sticking, who knows.

    Erukidu is just Nasu literally misspelling it because it's not even the commonly accepted form of it in katakana and last I checked not even the JP side knew why the hell it was like that.

    I warmly await Shielder Artoria with her Noble Phantasm - the holy shield Wynebgwrthucher.

    Elkidu probably started as a typo and then Nasu just stuck with it once it got published that way

    If memory serves it was spelled correctly at first so that doesnt make sense either

    If you wanna do the voiceless alveolar lateral fricative, just try to imitate Zizek's lisp.

    They focused on the Wild West dimension of the character, hence El Kid

    It's Nasu's attempt to spell the �� in �������� with the Akkadian/Semitic spelling (El) instead of the Sumerian spelling.

    You can blame anyone for anything. Reason is not necessary for accusation.
