<< I'll hazard an answer, even though I'm not sure that the
question was asked seriously, because I think that there may
be some HM'ers who do not know the answer, and also to check
if my idea of the correct answer is really correct. First,
the "J" in Julio signifies a sound that does not exist in
English, but does exist e.g. in Scot, (or at least it's a
similar sound), say in the word "loch" ( = lake). This is the
usual way of pronouncing a Spanish "J", as, say, in Don Juan.>>

(But not in Byron, where "Juan" rhymes with "true one" and so on)

I hope Julio will reply to confirm or otherwise!
