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 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.
