Comments for the name Achille

Comments for ACHILLE:

It's pronounced "a-SHEEL". [noted -ed]

Correction, actually, to a poster above. If you wish to pronounce it correctly in the Italian tongue, it would be:

A-KEE-lay.

"A" as in "Father". Stress on the "KEE" (chi). Pronounce both "LL"s, most easily accomplished by stressing the "I" (ee) right before and during. Lightly pronounce the "E" at the end, as a soft "lay".
