I say Mah-rio like normal people. But I have definitely heard people say May-rio. Though it's more like Mare-io

Re: May-rio or Mah-rio?

Is there even a debate? Mah-rio. No question.

This does remind me of a semi-funny story, though. I used to have this roommate named Gary. I always called him Gair-ee (like normal people), but he called himself Gay-ree. I'm not sure if it was his Maine accent, or what, but my buddies and I used to make fun of the way he said his name behind his back. Gay-ree, Gay-ree!

One time, my wife (girlfriend at the time) called and Gary answered. She thought it was me pretending to be Gay-ree, and he said to her, "No, this is really Gay-ree!" She started laughing and said, "yeah right, stop joking around". He keeps saying over and over again, "No, it's GAY-ree!" She's dying laughing at this point, until she realizes it really WAS Gary.

Kind of a stupid story, but it figured this thread needs all the help it can get.

Re: May-rio or Mah-rio?

I never figured that out either because the native spanish pronunciation, if you separated the syllables, would come out mah-ree-o, same as we say it in English.

Maybe they're assuming that its pronounced like Mary. You don't say Mah-ree, it's closer to May-ree.

Re: May-rio or Mah-rio?

What a landslide, I didn't think it would be this one sided. My whole life growing up on the east coast everyone always said Mayrio. Even the 2 real life Mario's Ive known went by Mayrio.

Take the word "yeah" and add the "rio" at the end like yeah-rio. Then just replace the "y" with an "m". Mey-ree-oh.

Not only does Mario pronounce it as Mah-rio in the start of Mario 64 but also the dictionary is against you.

Re: May-rio or Mah-rio?

When I'm impersonating Mario, I say Mahrio, and I'm not gonna argue that all of you are wrong, I was just curious to the ratio. I think it's probably from the french calling each other Mario, it translated to May-rio in english.

The east coast of Canada? I've lived in a few New England states and I've never heard anyone call him Mayrio or the like. The only people I've heard say it that way are people from the midwest like Minnesota(annoying accent all around).
