Re: Question about the pronunciation of "Mello"
Yes, you're right. That's if we're talking about Spanish, but Brazilians' official language is Portuguese, and Portuguese follows a different linguistic pattern than Spanish.
You pronounce it, according to the guide star posted a link to, "may-loo". The double "L" sound in Spanish, is "LH" in Portuguese, so it wouldn't be "may-o". Please refer to that link; it's extremely helpful. Any Portuguese speakers here to corroborate this?
Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.
