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.

I pronounce Nagios as:
At least I think that's how I pronounce it (damn phonetic spelling)... The "Na" sounds like "Nah", "gi" sounds like the first part of "geese", and "os" sounds like the last part of "verbose". You can pronounce it however the heck you'd like.
Alternative pronounciations vary. One that I liked is "nachos". Mmmmmm.... nachos.
Answer originally linked to an mp3 audio file which contained the pronunciation as spoken by Ethan, the author of Nagios. File is no longer hosted by Nagios.
Not sure but I always use Nag-ee-os
I've heard nah-gee-ohs. That's what I've heard.
