how do you pronounce piccolo cielo?

I was looking for a nickname for a girl and I came up with little heaven but I think it would sound better in Italian and translated it on the computer and got piccolo cielo, but I dont know how to pronounce it, can someone help me?

    PĒ-kō-lō CHĀ-lō


    Ē= the sound as in "heel"

    ō = the sound as in "oh"

    Ā = the sound as in "play"

    (i.e. "piccolo cielo" contains all LONG VOWEL sounds)

    and "CH" makes the sound as in "which" (as opposed to "ache")

    So, phonetically, I suppose you could say:

    PEE-koh-loh CHAY-loh

    (where you stress the "PEE" in piccolo and the "CHAY" in cielo).


    If you want to call her "my little heaven," you can say "mio piccolo cielo" (where mio is pronounced "MEE-oh"...i.e. the "i" is pronounced like a long e, the "o" is pronounced as a long o, and the stress is on the "MEE").

    That's VERY sweet, by the way :)

    Hope this helped! If not, let me know.
