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.
