how do you pronounce 'cthulhu'

Everybody's got their own pronunciations of "Cthulhu".
I just pronounce it with the 'c' being silent.

The word itself is alien…HP Lovecraft declared it such. There are numerous common pronunciations butttt the human cannot pronounce it correctly.


Edit: Since it wasn’t copyright then Metallica simply chose a simple and easy way to pronounce spelling for its listeners.

Edit 2: HP Lovecraft died in 1937 and the song was written in 1984 which is less than 70 years.

Is it (Cu-thu-lu), (Cha-tu-lu), or (Cth-ul-who)? I've always said it was Cha tu lu.

Hello Jacobi Reagan,

There is an already existing thread for this topic, so I have gone ahead and merged your thread into the original thread so they are 1 thread now. :dryadsmile:

I heard in one dudes video it's pronounced "Clue-Hloo" which... just sounds like a failed sneeze honestly. Lovecraft never meant for it to be pronounceable lol

I just watched Dr Strange Multiverse of Madness and ZERO doubt that first demon is a representation of Cthulhu.
