    In Romanji, it's usually written as Kyuubey instead of Kyubee. Mostly because Homura said it's Incubator i.e. In-KYUBEY-tor
    I don't think "ba" part in "incubator" is pronounced as "bee"

    ... "B" is pronounced as "bee"/"bii", ergo "QB" would mean "kyuubii", not "kyuuBEI".

    Well, yes, but a whole name Kyuubey is supposed to be short for Incubator, eventually people started to shorted in even further into KB as well, two letters are less than six or seven.

    Yeah, the fundamental issue with daimahou's logic here is running the conversion in the wrong direction, assuming that kyuubei is derived from QB, when QB was actually derived from a desire to get the closest thing to a phonetically coherent two character abbreviation of kyuubei that was possible.

    Also, it becomes a valid pronunciation if you assume the Q is pronounced in english and the B is pronounced in spanish :P (JK)
    (If you did it all in spanish, you'd get kubei)

    My logic is infallible! Thank you very much!

    I think my problem is that some japanese manga (Ga-rei) has already used "QB" (IIRC, when they are talking about it, literally on the silhouette) for "kyuubi" so I can't see it describing kyuubey.

    Fair enough.
    The chief difference being that QB is a fandom abbreviation of kyuubei, whereas Ga-Rei apparently uses it in an official sense?

    No, the main thing is that Americans can't pronounce words/letters right.
