    Yeah, ive always wondered... Is it Ar-beet-ey? which sounds very Latin, or Ar-bit-es, which sounds pretty stupid, or what?

    I've always thought it was Ar-bites.

    I think you got it right for the fist one, ar-bit-ey sounds right. Thats how I've always said it anyhow.

    Hmm... good question.

    I do it like this.
    Arbites
    Arrr-bi*-tsh**


    *bi like in bisexual. For those of you who understand this letter "æ" then I'd use that.
    **silent e.

    How about the rest of you?

    It would be "Ar-beet-ey" only if it was french. Its definetly not pronounced that way. Protocoons got it right. Ar as in "arr me hearties" and bites as in "he bites the apple." Arr-bites. (unless you're French)

    Ar-bite-ees. Arbites. As in the German word for work- 'arbeiten'.

    I've always pronounced it as 'Arr-bit*-is**'.

    (* As in 'He bit the apple'.
    ** As in 'He is Phobos'.)

    I always thought it was AR-bites. I never could go for the fancypants pronunciations.
