Do you pronounce it 'ING' ? hehe i have friends with that last name - they are Canto!

Cool! You know. That's real close. But the pronunciation deviates depending on where you're you are from and the accent of different places. I pronounce it something like "uhng" as in when you say.."uh....what?" lol
