Writer Diablo Cody, of Juno and United States of Tara fame, is a new mom. She and husband Daniel Maurio welcomed son Marcello Daniel yesterday.
Marcello has never charted in the US Top 1000, but could he follow other celeb-inspired, ends-in-o names like Harlow and Marlo into more common use? Or is the o-craze just a phase, the next generation’s -aden?
This is my uncle’s name, spelled with one “l” and he lives in a Spanish speaking country. I’m a bit baffled about how to say it in English though. To mee it seems like one of those names like Jesus or Angel that is forever going to be pronounced HAY-zeus or ON-hail by English speakers, so I’m not sure about it.
That is, with they Mar-sell-o pronunciation. I’ve never even heard the other one.
Marcello isn’t my favorite -o ender. Is it mar-SELL-oh or mar-CHELL-oh? I prefer the latter, but would guess the former is more oft said in the US. That about sums up my lack of enthusiasm right there.
I’d guess Marcello, but I don’t know for sure. We’ll have to wait for an interview.
D’oh – I’d guess mar CHEL o …
Call me crazy, but I like Marcello. It makes sense for her, with using Diablo and Juno. Is he Marcello Maurio, Marcello Cody, or what? Hmmm, it might change my mind, because I don’t think I love the sound of Marcello Maurio.
Totally agree. Marcello Maurio sounds awful.
It is Marcello Maurio.
