I've puzzled and debated over this for a while, so it's time to ask the community. What is the correct accepted pronunciation of Nagios, or at least the most common pronunciation? This topic is addressed in the project's FAQ, but the linked .mp3 of the pronunciation has been missing for some time.

A direct link to the pronunciation referenced on the community wiki. As pronounced by Ethan, the author of Nagios.

That's what I needed. Thank you. – Michael Jul 27 '11 at 15:09
For those that don't want to listen (or in case the linked file disappears) - it's pronounced with a hard 'g', as in the word "geek". So pronounce na-gee-os as if the middle syllable is the word geek without the "k". – Brendan Abel Nov 24 '15 at 21:05

Not sure but I always use Nag-ee-os

Hard 'g' or soft? – Michael Jul 27 '11 at 15:07
I use a hard 'g'. I just found a second person using a soft 'g' which is how I found this page. – freb Jul 17 '14 at 23:34

I've heard nah-gee-ohs. That's what I've heard.
