    Dobby

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask, and I'm sorry if it's not, but what is the correct pronunciation of Dobby? My friends and I got into like a scream fest about it, and I would really like to know the official answer. Thanks.

    And in the International Phonetic Alphabet (just for fun!) it's [dɑːbi]. (I think... if someone else is an expert on the IPA, feel free to correct me!)

    Thanks to opaleye for the lovely banner!

    The 'o' in Dobby is short rather than long, so it sounds like "Dah-bie" rather than "Doh-bie."

    And to illustrate, here's a scene from the CoS movie:
