There is a couple of audio files on the bottom of this page -> http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardDuemilanove answering the pronunciation question

I read somewhere, maybe here on arduino.cc or an EBay auction, that it was named after an italian king.

There is some info and reference links in the thread at http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1245887853.

Lets just agree and standardize on ARE-DWEEN-NO, cause I like it and three syllables is more then enough to encode a 8 bit controller. (Old octal joke) ;D

LOL

I think what really needs discussed is the whole "Duemilan...", "Dweymila...", "Duwey..." - ah, fuggitit: "2009"

:)

Every time I want to reference the full name, I either have to look it up (if I am feeling motivated), or just write "2009" - I can never remember how to spell "Duemilanove" (and it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, either)...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Think about us poor italians... 90% of the stuff that we buy has english names... (at least in technology)

Now you understand how we feel :)
