    Grammatically it should be a G sounds like gift but the kid that created is not a native English speaker so he thinks its JIFF. I say it like gift.

    I say gif with a hard g because the g stands for graphic.

    And yes, I know the man who created gifs says it "jif" but he's wrong. Smart dude, but not good at naming his creations

    If you're saying it with a hard G, you better be talking about peanut butter.

    Why is that grammatically correct? What about general or gemstone? Or if your referring to words which start with a g-i, what about Gin?

    GIF is an acronym for: Graphics Interchange Format

    "Graphics" is not pronounced "Jafrics"
