Pride and arrogance are two very different terms, which are often confused by many people at times. Mr Darcy has pride due to the fact he is of a high social class and is admired by many. Elizabeth is disgusted by his pride and instantly develops a prejudice against him, so the title Pride and Prejudice fits really well.
