ELVIS

"I am the foremost collector of velvet Elvii in the city of Chicago," I said at once.

"Elvii?" Macone inquired.

"The plural would be Elvises, I guess," I said. "But if I say that too often, I start muttering to myself and calling things 'my precious', so I usually go with the Latin plural."
~ Jim Butcher,  Death Masks~
