User comments for Aquila (Pronunciation Only)

This name in Spanish is pronounced uh-KEE-la. I expect that is true for a few other nationalities too.

Saying the 'qu' as 'kw' is an anglicized mispronunciation of this Latin name. The latinized/romance language pronunciation is uh-KEE-luh. I hope the BTN editors change it on the main Aquila page to return this name to its origins. (ie., you wouldn't pronounce Miguel as "mee-gwel" would you?)

The Classical Latin pronunciation of this name is 'u-KWI-lu', so no, 'uh-KEE-luh' isn't the "latinized/romance language pronunciation". Also, considering that Aquila is originally a Latin name, there is no way to "latinize" it.
