Perhaps the name Gaius is derived from Gaia, as Gaius may be a masculine form of that name. Just a theory, probably not right.

Pronunciation[edit]

The pronunciation rules are contradictory: Gā-ǐ-us [ˈɡaː.ɪ.ʊs]

The English rules result in something like "GAY ih us" (in American English). The Latin IPA rules result in something like "GAW ee us".

These may be reasonable current three-syllable pronunciations, but which one is correct for classical times? 24.57.210.141 (talk) 06:32, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
