Are you serious dude? I'm assuming you're greek judging by your avatar and your sig, but i'm doubting it after this comment. Maybe you're Greek and you've never heard any one speak the language, cause if you have then you'd know how absurd that is.
The Islands are pronounced "Kee-Klad-Thes", and Kyklades does a fairly good job at giving that pronunciation and stays true to how its really spelled. Cyclades makes it seem like the islands should be pronounced "Psy-Clades." How does that sound more right?
also, if you tell me it sounds more Greek, i better put a k in front of every thing that should be a c. However it does not sound more Greek
Wtf dude. If you're trying to mimick Greek using English, you probably should replace any c's with k's. But aside from that rare occasion when you might be trying to do that, no, you shouldn't.
As for me, I didn't replace any c's with k's. K's are what have always been there. I don't care if some British people decided to use a C when they first wrote down a couple of these names, good for them. They can keep using a C, i'll keep using a K. It makes no difference, cause when I read what they wrote, I know what they're referring to, and vice versa. So get over it.
