This name is not pronounced Dye-go, it is pronounced Dee-ay-go.

It's pronounced DYE-go! It's a Spanish name, and that's the way it's pronounced, not only in Spanish-speaking countries, but everywhere. Don't try to be smart about something you don't know or you've heard from some other (non-hispanic) Americans.

I have only heard this pronounced de-AY-go.

I think a lot of people here are misinterpreting the pronunciation guide ("DYE-go") as "DIE-go". It is only in the "Spanglish" of the USA that this name is pronounced dee-AY-go. DYE-go is not like dye/die (homophones) plus go. It is D then Y as a consonant, E which (when said with the correct accent) can sound similar to AY, and then "go." I like this name, it's cute. It will always be associated with Dora the Explorer's friend/brother/cousin or whatever he is, though.

What does it take to correct an error on this site? For ten years people have been telling you that the pronunciation of Diego isn't DYE-go; it's a three-syllable name, Dee-AY-go. But you still have it wrong. Please correct it. Having this blatant an error on your site makes people wonder if anything here can be relied on.

These pages show the Spanish pronunciation as [ˈdjeɣo], which is the same as what this site shows currently

Dee-AY-go is incorrect! That is how non Spanish speakers pronounce it. I am a Hispanic person that has grown up with plenty of Diegos, so I can confirm that the website has the correct two syllable pronunciation.

To English speakers, "dye" has the same pronunciation as "die." And the only Spanish word to have that "aye" sound is a meaningless expression of dismay. You may speak fast enough to slam two vowels into one syllable the way two cars in a head on collision slam together, but to us, two consecutive vowels that both make their own sound are considered separate syllables. Ergo, to speakers of enunciation-heavy languages like English, Diego is three syllables.

Dee-ay-go. I've NEVER heard anyone pronounce it as "Die-go" including Spanish native people.

That right there hould be enough proof for you. Its Dee-ay-go. Simple as that.
