I've been reading a book where the main character's name is Eolo, which I think is pronounce Ey-o-lo or maybe Ee-o-lo. I don't know about Eye-oh-lo, but is that close?

Could you alter the pronunciation and use "Eye-oh-lo", or would that make me sound stupid?

Iolo, although it is pronounce yo-luh, is way to close to the overused "yolo" stupid kids are saying these days. Also sounds like Yoda.
