We could call it a Razzy, but I think that's taken already. 

I prefer RaspPi with that style of capitalisation as it points to a spoken emphasis.  RasPi/Raspi makes you sound as if you're describing someone with a sore throat, and ArrPie sounds like you're speaking about a mythological creature!

Each to their own, I think we'll get the drift no matter what it settles down to.....

Googling for raspi - most of the top ten results link to the raspi

Googling for rpi - just brings back retail price index links

Googling for RaspPI - google asks "Did you mean raspi!"

How do you pronounce RasPi?


Rass pee
Rass pie
Razz pee
Razz pie  (my favourite, with equal emphasis on each syllable)
Rahz pee
Rahz pie

I am jealous of anybody who can remember how to use those funny phonetic symbols (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I.....c_Alphabet)

its a clear winner, easy to ready, say, spell and is a simple contraction of the name of the beastie itself raspberry pi
I changed my mind... and everyone else seems to have too...

The abbreviation that almost everyone is using.. is just "Pi".
