Di-a-ji-o, I think. The G is soft if the people I've heard it from are correct. :roll:

Yes, Mr T's offering is the correct one.

I know several people who work for Diageo here in Oz, and they all pronounce it Dee-Ah-gee-oh, but it's important to note that the the 'gee' is soft, not hard.

I think everyone above has it right--Mr Picky just makes me spell better phonetically. That's spell.

"The neutral-sounding and fairly meaningless name ‘Diageo PLC’ was chosen. Diageo explains this name as follows: 'the name "Diageo" combines the Latin word for "day" and the Greek word for "earth". Together, the two words mean celebrating life every day, everywhere.’14 This is captured in another of its catchphrases, 'every day, everywhere, people are enjoying our brands."
