Ya, Mah-ree-oh is correct, but the problem is a lot of American accents seem to pronounce the "ah" as an O and it sounds to me like
"Mo-ree-oh"

Hold on this just made me think... I'm pretty sure that Princess Peach/Toadstool pronounces it as "Morio" in one of the games! But argh, I can't think which!

Edit: Could it be in the ending cut scene to Mario 64?

Since the guy that invented Mario is Japanese and most Mario games are in English, I think it's irrelevant to say there's only one pronunciation.
Regardless, I'm a romance-lagnuage speaker, and since Spanish is very similar in pronunciation to Italian, the way we say Mario is MA-REE-OH (making your tongue touch the back part of your teeth). And, by the way, Mario has only two syllables (MA-RIO), the tension resting in the first syllable MA.

Guru Rinpoche, It's actually spelled Aluminium.
USA is like the only country in the world that totally missed out the suffix -ium, probably because of a misspelling on a american flier back in 1892. Kind of funny

We swedes pronounce mario similar to the programmed cyborg in the video, except for a harder R.
The absolut correct pronounciation would probably be how Mario himself pronounce his name in the splash intro in Mario 64.
MAń RRRR IO.

And thats the sad thing

It's not a review at all, she just says it's fun. And a load of other crap human beings cannot understand, which probably doesn't describe the game anyway. &&
