i thought Aro was like arrow when you're talking in english. when you're speaking in italian, i don't think they have the "arrow" sound, so they say ahro. am i right?

And I say Nah-HUE-el for Nahuel. When in doubt, I go with the obvious.
However, I hope I'm not the only person this totally clueless out there. Siobahn is pronounced Sha-Vaun. Pel had a good laugh at me over this one, so please speak up if you didn't know that was how it was pronounced!

Does the accent make a difference where the emphasis is like in Spanish, or does it change the pronunciation at all? I'm very interested in other languages and Irish/Scottish Gaelic has always been a fascination of mine.
