It actually
goes Dyoh-dahti (y like in 'yes', stress on 'dah'). That's Italian for ‘God's
gift’ (lit. 'given by God'), which explains the long ‘o’ in ‘Dio’ (God) as well 'ah' (like in 'father') for 'dati' (from Latin 'dare', to give). Same
pronunciation for Swiss
Calvinist scholar Giovanni Diodati.
