The T sounds similar to a D though in Modern Greek, so it's closer to kah-lee-SDRAH-dee. I haven't found any sites that have the exact stress, so I am not possitive on that part of it. However, related names in Greek have the stress mark on that particular syllable, so it is a pretty educated guess. Perhaps Pavlos could enlighten us.


Midnight stands darkly on the road,
and burdened by stars, tumbles down.
You can't step beyond your fence
without trampling the universe.
