The Italian pronunciation which is currently listed is correct except for the beginning.

JYAH-Koh-Moh

As you see, it starts with "Gia" (equaling: Jyah). There is no "JAH" in the Italian language. Without the "I" (key to the whole sound) it would simply be "Ga"-- the "G" would then be hard, "Gah." Let us continue. "O" is as usual, "O," for both found in the ending "Como."
