  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. I’d guess Marcello, but I don’t know for sure. We’ll have to wait for an interview.

  3. 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.
