Comments for the name Desdemona

Comments for DESDEMONA:

In Verdi's opera Otello the name is accented on the second syllable.

That's because Giuseppe Verdi was Italian, and des-DE-mo-na is the Italian pronunciation of the name.

In Spanish it's spelt Desdémona and pronounced the same as in Italian.
