Re: Giovanni: It sounds different in Italian because of the accent, so it isn't as straightforward as one syllable over the other. It comes out like JYO-VAAHN-nee. The first syllable is stressed, the second syllable is dragged out for a longer time, with the 'n' from the second syllable bleeding into the third syllable.
