How do you pronounce "Mario"?

66 posts in this topic

Occasionally I hear people pronounce Mario as 'Mare-ee-yo'. Is that a common pronunciation of it? I've always called the adorable plumber 'Marr-ee-yo'.

I was under the impression that it was mostly Americans that pronounced it "Mare-ee-yo". I've always pronounced it "Marr-ee-yo".

i don't know anyone who pronounces Mario "Mare-ee-yo". when i hear it in the commercials, i think of them as ignorant speakers.

"Marr-ee-yo" it is, maybe even "Moh-dee-yo" if you have the accent.

Not sure I agree with your makeshift phonetics ( :P ), but I've always pronounced it 'Maw-ree-o', not 'Ma-ree-o'.

I just say it in French, ma-ryo. The ma is more Ah! than maw. And the O is not rye o, it's like putting an R in front of yo. Add German R's.

Also, fuck people who say rye yoo instead ree yoo. Hadoken.

Both are correct, it just depends where you're from - your dialect. "PoTAYto/PoTAHto, ToMAYto/ToMAHto". The official pronunciation, however, is "Marr-ee-oh".

I'm more concerned with how the hell to pronounce names like "Rinoa" and "Tidus".

Since Tidus's name derives from the word tide (or so I assume, what with all the water theme going on in that game) I always said tide-us. Us like the ending of anus. Lawl.

Another "Marr-ee-oh" here.

Loved the original NES game. It's funny how this game (and console for that matter) really had an impact on me, becoming more of a gamer, and I haven't played anything Nintendo since N64, haha.

My wife and I argue about this all the time as she claims to pronounce it "the Italian way". I have always said it the way he taught me from the good ol N64 days...

"It's-a-me, Mario"

I've always pronounced it Mar-E-O (your second option, I assume), but just about everyone I've come across pronounces it Mah-Re-O (your first option, I assume).
