Well, it's special to ME!

To start, the sound of Joomla in dutch is sooooo sweet! 
But then, I was born in Congo and was speaking Swahili till I was 10 !!
"Mototo" (the baby) is beautiful!!

The word is playful in one's mouth!!

Joomla! sounds to me something like "FREE, at last" like Nelson Mandela leaving his prison! ...... I like it!

So how is it actually pronounced??
Joomla like Jumanji?
or
Joomla with a silent J like the spanish name Julio?

By the way, what does it mean?

For an extensive explanation of the original word 'Jumla' of which Joomla is a phonetic derivate, see the announcement.
It means, amongst other things, "All together"

I forgot to share this with you. These are the moments when Joomla was born:
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
