His dad is Franco-Ontarian, and spelled it Parisť, which in French would be pronounced "pah-ree-ZAY."1 Since accents aren't really used on US names, Zach dropped the ť, but the pronunciation hasn't really changed a lot, except the emphasis so it doesn't sound totally ridiculous in an English sentence. Thus, we arrive at the version he listed in the 2013 Wild Media Guide, which is "pah-REE-say."

1 I'm like 90% sure on this one but my French is awful. Fel, care to help?
