    I have never heard of Phyllo before so it wouldn't bother me. Philo is an interesting name but I would only ever use it as a middle name.

    My initial reaction was the pastry dough (didn't know I was pronouncing it wrong!) and that I didn't love the name - so that is what I voted. However, I like the sound of the name and I can see it growing on me.

    The dough. Regardless, I think it is terrible as a name. Sorry.

    American Pronunciation of phyllo by Macmillan Dictionary

    It's pronounced Fy-low there and this is an American English dictionary.
    Merriam Webster has the same pronuncation.

    So idk if I would really say that Fee-low is the correct pronunciation... it may be a pronunciation but not the pronunciation.

    I only think of Philo T. Farnsworth. I mostly like it, but every once in a while it makes me think of the word Pedophile so it never makes it on my list.
