Same as chitin? Or like "KITE-on"?
Well since MW states Chiton is pronounced \ ˈkī-tᵊn, ˈkī-ˌtän \, they are effectively the same. They even have an audio sample.
Wikipedia states Chitons is pronounced /ˈkaɪtənz/; 'k' in 'kind', 'i' in 'tide', 't' in 'tie', 'on' in 'button', and 'z' in 'zoom'.
Kyton is a fictional word, which I don't think has ever had an officially published pronunciation guide...but every person I have ever heard say it, pronounces it with a long I sound, K-eye-ton
On a side note, here are a few often mispronounced words which come up fairly often in TTRPGs: Chitin (as in insectoid and some demons exoskeletons) and Chimera (the lion/goat/snake monster) are both greek rooted words, so both use the hard K sound for the ch. Wyvern is another one which I always hear people mess up. It is pronounced as Why Vern...most people who screw it up pronounce it Whi Vern.
