e621 Pronunciation

In category: Off Topic

So this is probably the strangest thing I've ever asked but.... how do you pronounce this "e621"? Is it pronounced like, E. six. two. one.? Or is it, E six hundred and twenty one? Or is it meant to be pronounced together as one word like "essixtuon"?

also, as a side question: why is it called e621?


In my head, I've always pronounced it "ee-six-twenty-one", or "ee-six" for short. I'd also accept "the only furry booru that matters".

I pronounce it E-six-two-one. I don't know if there's any official pronunciation. Trying to dictate that might go over about as well as telling people that .gif is pronounced with a J.

E621 is the e number for msg, which gives food its meaty flavor. Because of the explicit nature of this site, it has a strong meat (penis) flavor.
Alternatively, the website e926.net, which only includes safe posts, has the e number for a chemical that purifies water, or in this case, cleans the impurities from this site. (I'm quoting Ratte on this)


Always ee-sicks-twenty-one or ee-sicks for me.

Eh this, pretty much, seems simplest and straightforward.

I suppose I am one of the rare few who spells out the acronym, heh.

  • Also:
    • looked at the number 621
    • 6+2+1=9, which is divisible by nine, therefore 621 is divisible by nine
    • 621/9
    • ...this cannot be a coincident.

    I'm pretty sure I would say "e-six-twentyone" even if I referred to it in swedish.


    I took the long route and called it ''E-six-hundred-twenty-one''
