Καλλιόπη means beautiful voice and she was one of the 9 Muses in Greek Mythology - I think to do with poetry and singing?

The τόνος is on the third vowel.  Kal-ee-o-pee

 

Ιάκοβος

I pronounce it like I hear you saying it calli oh pee but every other pronunciation is saying cah lye o pee. Where can I hear more pronunciations like we say the name?
I am not aware of different pronunciations with significant difference.  And I would not know where to find mp3s of those different pronunciations.
Here's a different pronunciation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS_AZMxbQ8g

Every person will pronounce it a little different.  But this sample too does sound right! ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS_AZMxbQ8g )
