Mah-ree-oh, because that's how it's pronounced.

I say Mare-ee-oh sometimes if i'm joking around, because of this.

Just say it the way Peach does every time she calls out for him. I don't think Nintendo would let their VA say it wrong.

I just thought of perhaps a better way to write it down..

Marry-E-O

Seems more legit then Mah-ree-o where the mah can also be said like Mar-ree-o.

So.. there we are peeps, it's Marry-E-O from now on.

Mah-rio.

Any other way is just flat out wrong. End of story.

Thats one reason why I hate th Bowser's Inside Story commercial.

Every single one of those damn kids says Mair-io.

....why.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I pronounce it BOTH ways, interchangeably.

Pretty sure the letter "i" is always an "ee" sound in Italian. I know that's the case for Spanish, and I'm pretty sure it's the same vowel sounds.
