@SamuelB1 that's great. How many people fo you know that use it?

@amasad Everyone in my programming class uses it which is probably around 100-120 people across all the classes.

I say ree-pulh-eye-tee-t

i myself, along with basically everyone at my school, pronounces it reh-plit. It's the most logical way to pronounce it, but hopefully one of the creators can answer it.
(Logical since repl+it makes the mentioned sound, and repl should be short for replication)

@JoshDaBosh Fun fact, repl is an acronym for Read - Eval - Print - Loop - which is what the console part of your workspace does! It reads your input, evaluates it, prints the result, and starts over again. :)
