    Most likely.


    Back when, until I saw it written out, I assumed she was "R.C." as in 'remote control' or some such.

    Fail.

    It's pronounced as ar-say, not ar-see.

    No, it is pronounced AR-see (capitalization on the stressed syllable). The difference here is that "arsey" would be pronounced "ARS-ee."

    And no, Arcee's name is not meant to evoke the British term "arse." Her name is obviously subtle product placement for Royal Crown cola.

    Being one that believes that femme-bots DO deserve free-will (And that comments made in sarcastic tongue-in-cheek posts will be taken in the same light)

    I always assumed that she was designated as a R(ace)C(ar)

    Though I think that we can all agree that at SOME point in her development her name was derived from some kind of initials.

    Figures, you're a Scot.

    JK! You guys made Ewan McGregor, who then became Obi-Wan, so it's all good.

    :duel 

    I've got long hair and a beard, I often get called Jesus, Rik Wakeman, Bill Bailey etc. One of the better ones is Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, quite happy with that, even if I've only heard it a couple of times :D

    Susan Blu pronounces it as ar-SEE. So the name is obviously a subtle reference to global water conservation ("our sea").

    Before I watched the movie or S3. I had only seen her name in written form.

    Although I always switched the "r" and "c" around in my head for some reason.
    Resulting in "Acree", which doesn't make any sense.

    When I first saw her name, I thought it was a longer version of "RC", as in Race Car or Remote Controlled.

    When I was a kid I thought Arcee was spelled RC as well. I also thought Elita One was spelled Alita-1.
