Ricciardo pronounces his name Rikardo.

I heard him discussing why somewhere this week but don't recall the
program.

Both wrong, in theory - the chap's father (or grandfather?) is
italian, so it should really be "richardo" with two Cs, if you can
manage that. Course that's meaningless seeing as how the man himself
pronounces it differently... he does speak a rather good italian tho,
that was a pleasant surprise.

Well, in the light of his Italian ancestry, the correct pronounciation should
be like that of an Anglophone reading "Reetchardow".

Obviously enough, Italian commentators talk to him as an Italian and don't
focus on the way his name is actually pronounced in Australia. (and, I presume,
by all non-Italian speaking people).

In the early 90's, I was impressed to hear Riccardo Patrese, born in Padua,
saying "Benetton" with the stress on the first "e", as most say, including
many Italians, whereas his Venetian descent would suggest he would go "Bennetton"
with the stress on the "o". Of course, living within a certain community leads
to take on their habits.
If I were to leave in the Champ Car world, I'd probably drop the Italian pronounciation
of "Andretti" and switch to "Aendrery"...

Peter Windsor according to my mate Frank (an Italian) who watched qually
with me gets the pronunciation right. So look at "The Flying Lap".

But do not get confused, please, Dan is an Aussie ;-)

That might be the case in Italy (beautiful language, btw) but here in
the land of coarse, hard on the ears Australian language it is
pronounced with an coarse emphasis on the "are", hence it is now an
Aussie name ;-).

I should point out that outside Rome and New York the biggest
population of the lovely Italians is Melbourne ;-)

Lol. Bird, you do realise that you all you do by carrying on like this
is make yourself look like somebody whose only reaction to anything he
can't understand or doesn't want to accept is to fire off insults.

Even worse, or so I'd think, but I'd bet your world view is not mine,
you get into a fight with one poster and decide to use it to attack
somebody else who has no involvement

Of course, you may just be being true to yourself. Only you would really
know.

I was perfectly away of who I was replying to. And haven't you got any
more insults? In fact, do you have anything except insults?

It was put to me some time ago that you and Lord Charles/Timmy... you
know, the man of a thousand names were one and the same. I wasn't
convinced, but I can see why somebody might think that. You both have
the same approach - IE just call people variations on "cunt".

No. You say it's a lie, but that's just what you say.

And really, Bird. It's tedious now. For some reason you've decided to
have a go at me, but all you have is rude names and a belief (I'm giving
you the credit of it not being a pretence) that you know my motivations
better than I do myself.

Which is not a lot.

Now you want to keep on calling me names and telling me what I'm thinking,
you know what email address to use.

Take that fucking beam out of your eye. I have happily ignored you
since your sulk until you came begging for attention, just like that
little bitch tg, with your passive aggressive trolling.

Here, in this thread, picking up on a post made so many years ago it
was unrecognisable.

Just stop being a thick cunt.

STOP BEING A THICK HEADED CUNT!!!

...because that is what is so infinitely tedious about about you.

Now fuck off and tend your wounds, bitch.

According to Wiki, New York ranks third, behind Buenos Aires and
Sao Paulo.

In 2010 Sao Paulo had ~6m inhabitants of Italian origin.

In 2011 Melbourne had ~68k.

Let's not forget the 'i' in the middle.
'Ricci'is pronounced 'Reechee'where the 'ch' is soft as in 'church' and not hard as in 'chemical'.

Just as my family did, he has Anglicised his surname.It's easier to blend in to your new society.

As an Italian name, it would correctly be "Reech-chardo", but as he is an Australian, and they say "Rickardo". one has to go with that. Kind of like "Cairns" being pronounced "Kahns" there. One goes with the accepted local way of saying those names.

It's spelt Rikeeardo but the 5 Live commentators said it's pronounced
Rikardo.
Anyone know?

Henry Birkin, Bt.
As an Italian name, it would correctly be "Reech-chardo", but as he is an Australian, and they say "Rickardo". one has to go with that. Kind of like "Cairns" being pronounced "Kahns" there. One goes with the accepted local way of saying those names.
If it were an Italian name, and Italian spelling, then it would be pronounced
Rik-ee-ar-do". When reading Italian you pronounce everything you see.

Beautiful sounding language.

No. "Rik-ee-ar-do" may sound beautiful, but it is wrong.

It is "Ree-char-doe".

True, which underlines the point that it’s not something you can be

It's not about how I would pronounce it, it's about
what is the correct pronunciation. As one responded,
"when reading Italian you pronounce everything you
see", that is correct. Accordingly, ciao is correctly
pronounced chee-ow, but it is commonly run together
as chow in the way that interesting is commonly, but
incorrectly, pronounced as in-tres-ting.

But then had it not been for the Clintons many Brits would have got
Arkansas wrong. Every language has its anomalies. It took me some some when
visiting the East coast of America to realize what was meant by boo-eee
(buoy). Interesting too how Americans tend to stress the last syllable in
proper names e.g. “Bernard” - Brits say it without stress whereas American
usually stress the last syllable.

I've noticed that too - and that Horner also sometimes refers to him as
'Danny', a name he's never liked or endorsed and one you'll never normally
hear from anyone else who knows him.

Maybe Horner's trying to get Dan to leave?
