    If you really get anxious about it, pick a name that keeps Lula as an nickname. Something like Luella, Ludmila, Lucilla have the Lu-la built right...

    I think most people would naturally go for the ah-lye-zah pronunciation, considering the commonality of Eliza.

    Ah-lee-zah would have to be explained, though it is technically also correct.

    I have never heard of Elsana.

    I do like Elsa, though I expect it to get incredibly popular due to Frozen.
    Elsie and Elspeth would be decent alternatives. So would Rosana, Oksana and Eliana.
