This one's a little hard to pronounce correctly. It is NOT pronounced ree-oh; try to say just "ryoh," one syllable.

Interesting... I would never use it a I am not of Japanese decent. I have engaged in role-plays in the past that included characters by the name of "Ryo." A decent name-- simple, straight forward, but must be used according to ethnic origin.

This is extremely difficult to pronounce. It almost sounds like the name Joe. The R is pronounced like a mixture of a D, J and L and it only has one syllable.
