Don't know if this is in the right forum, if not, sorry I am still a ヌウブ.

Did I spell Phoenix in Katakana right? Fi ni ki su? フィニキス? I have been studying Japanese for a while, but I totally forgot how to spell Phoenix in Japanese.

どもありがとおございます。

Very close!, But actually, it's:

フェニックス

To a Japanese, this sounds like our word "Phoenix," even though your spelling seems closer from our perspective.

Katakana can be like that.... :@
