Both are acceptable.

Aerith is how she was originally designed in Japan, but during the translation process it came out as Aeris in English. Oddly enough, I remember once many many many many years ago when I did a playthrough her name defaulted to Aerith for some reason. Probably because of a mod or something I was using at the time. Anyway, that incident is why I know this now.

But yeah, either or.

Japanese doesn't have a "th" phoneme so she's Aeris there too.

She was just retconned to "Aerith" in spinoffs for no reason.
Not a winner anymore.

Aeris sounds like Ares(to me at least)
