    Well, I cheated and looked online. . .but all I've found so far is Crispin Cioe, who says it's "see-o". But I guess that's out? Hmm. . .

    OK, I have an idea as to the language. . .so, I'd guess:

    "chay"

    or

    "chay-uh"
     
  11. guess i dont win but these are what i always figured

    I was going to guess "Cho-ee", maybe because I'm part Italian. What is the lineage?

    Now THAT is cool!! :cool: What does it mean in Dutch?
