    "Ah-ruh-BEL-luh" is the way I pronounce it. I don't know why people would say "air" when it's spelled "ar".
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Ar-ah-BELL-a. First syllable definitely not like "air"-- more just like saying the letter "r", following by ah-BELL-ah. First syllable rhymes with "car". I'm from the East Coast, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks for all the replies! Does anyone know how it's actually pronounced or can it go both ways kind of like the name Ariana?

    It's dependent on the dialect you speak. Everything listed is correct, it's just a regional difference, like how some people pronounce Cara "CAIR-a," some say "CAH-ra" (like the beginning of "cat") and some say "CAR-a." I use the second pronunciation, you can pick whichever you like best. It's really not a very difficult name, I don't think.
