    I live in Canada, and my instinct is to pronounce it CARE-iss. I imagine people would butcher the spelling some, but I think its pronunciation is fairly clear when you see it on paper (so, Starbucks...

    If Elise is out (which is a shame, but you're right that Elise Denise is pretty sing-songy), you might like Eliza or Elena.

    To me it's too much a word... if it was only a nymph name I'd be totally on board. I'd totally use it as a middle name if I were you, but not as a first name.

    I like it. I met someone with this name once and didn't bat an eye beyond thinking I'd never seen it used as a name in the real world before. It's similar enough to Valeria that I don't think of it...

    I don't have a strong opinion either way on Mat(h)ilda - I like either spelling. I suppose that Mathilda could lead to mispronunciations, so maybe that's what makes that decision for you.
