Ways of pronouncing it can be:
An tone ee oh
An tone yo
I will respond to both. My name gets said so fast I rarely ever notice how it's being pronounced. It doesn't really matter how it's being pronounced... I don't need to correct people on how to say it, nor do I mind how they say it. People just don't seem to mispronounce it anyway xD
As for spelling, I haven't come across a single person to spell Antonio wrong. They have difficulty usually with my last name, not my first name haha xD
Nicknames I've gotten with this name include:
(those aren't all the nicknames but those are the preferred ones)
I haven't met another Antonio... I've met two people named Anthony before though.
Oh I remember one guy kept calling me Anthony and then asked "is it Anthony or Antony?" and I said... It's Antonio xD... oh wow that was interesting to see his reaction. x] I'm not picky on my name, as I said earlier, so if someone mistakenly calls me Anthony I'll accept it usually, unless I feel it needs to be corrected.
OH and I am Italian and this name can either be taken as Italian or Spanish. Both would be correct to assume. I consider it Italian more because I'm Italian, but my Spanish friend considered it Spanish. Does it matter between the two? Nope. :]" Apr. 8, 2010:
"I called my son Antonio. He's 5 and in New Zealand and I haven't met another boy his age with the same name. It is more common for mothers to give their daughters Italian names rather than their sons." Nov. 8, 2008:
