The plural for the fraction 1/8

Am I the only person in the world that struggles with spelling the plural of 1/8 as “eighths?” Maybe it’s the five consonants in a row with multiple H’s that throws me.  It’s almost Welsh-like.  If you’ve never seen Welsh, it is a thing unto itself.  For example:

John 3:16 (English)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Ioan 3:16 (Welsh)

Canys felly y carodd Duw y byd fel y rhoddodd efe ei unig-anedig Fab, fel na choller pwy bynnag a gredo ynddo ef, ond caffael ohono fywyd tragwyddol.
