Question
How would you pronounce Arkeides?

Answer
Hi Alison,

thank you for your question. I think that the name you submitted doesn't exist. At least I couldn't find it in my databases. You probably mean "Argeides" (deriving from the town of "Argos"). Still, your "Arkeides" is also pronuncible is the following way (utter the given English words):

Arkeides --> are-'key-this

Argeides --> are-'yi-this

Good luck!

Cordially,
Michael
