Dear All,


I am wondering about two questions.

First, how should we pronounce the word “octave”

My German colleague always pronounce  it  as  oct-taaf ,  like staff.

Some others argue that it should be oct-teyv  like slave.


Second, how was the creator name it “octave” what are the reasons behind ?
