I've always thought of it as option 1, but from some posted campaign videos it appears some posters think of it as option 2. I don't think an official pronunciation has ever been established.

If I get elected, we will use the 2nd definition and make it official. Tongue

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

But it makes no sense considering it's a variation of the word "Atlas"

The former pronunciation makes more sense, of course, but the corrupted form sounds better (and hence it is my choice).

Option 1.  And I'm surprised Option 2 has the majority.  It's based on "Atlas"... pronouncing it like "Asia" makes no sense...

It must be a Northeast thing to pronounce it as the latter, cuz I know that's how Tweed pronounces it too.

So long as you get the characters in the "submit" box, they show up here.  I have a keyboard layout that has some of the more common ones for English and copypaste others.

I've always pronounced it Atl - Asia, though I can see the validity of the former pronounciation.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

Well, it does come from 'Atlas', so I guess Option 1 would be the strictly correct pronunciation, but At-lay-zha just sounds better.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
