That first letter is an i right? Can't tell in this font if it is an L or an i.

Good question - it's rather swallowed. I asked my Dad, and he said it 'Mee Oool.' With the final 'L' clear.

I always imagined this would be pronounced more like the English word "Yule", since it starts with an 'I'.

So, 'month of July.' The Iúil is in the genitive, yes?

Yes, even though it seems that the forms are the same for genitive and nominative
