How to pronounce Calliope?

[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Calliope[/name]?




I always seem to want to pronounce it [name]Cal[/name]-lee-ope. I will get it eventually. Took me forever to pronounce [name]Isla[/name] properly.

I used to prn it cal-ee-ope but its supposed to be cal-ee-oh-pee I think.

I pronounced it as callie-oh-pee for forever… the correct pronunciation is cuh-lye-oh-pee though.

It’s pronounced “kuh-LYE-uh-pee”.

I agree about the [name]Isla[/name] pronunciation!

I pronounce it as kuh-LIE-uh-pee (like the instrument), but I know a Greek girl named this and she and her (very very Greek) family pronounce it [name]CAL[/name]-ee-OH-pee. I’ve never gotten used to it – it sounds to weird to my ear, but maybe that’s the correct way to pronounce it? Dantea would know; maybe she’ll happen upon this post.
