I'll give it a try.
BAGOAS is pronounced Bah-goh-as.
If i'm not right, someone will correct me.

I say it like that too (bah-GOE-ass). While we're at it, how do you say Gaugamela? Or Olympias for that matter? I swear when the film comes out I'm going to discover I've been mangling all the vowels and putting the stress in the wrong place of everything ...

I always call Bagoas "Baggy Ass" tee hee hee - but that's a bit rude!!

I've heard different pronounciations of Gaugamela on various documentaries ... but the one I remember is "g-wag-a-mel-a"... also I've heard Darius pronounced "da-rye-is" and "dar-e-us".....

You're right tho - the movie will be an education! Smile

Hello Everyone,

I always thought it was Bagoas - BAG-OH-AZ, but I love your Baggy-ass interpretation. Who knows, maybe after Alexander got finished with him, he had a baggy ass!!!!! Oops, did I say that.... Naughty, naughty....... Twisted Evil

And, Darius is DAR-EE-US. I work with a girl named Daria, pronounced DAR-EE-AH. But, since I and most staff can't stand her, I always call her Diarrhea...... Oh, I'm bad, so bad........ Crying or Very sad

Larry
