How on earth do you pronounce Aloysius. I just saw it run across the NameBerry banner. My only experience with it is as the name of Sebastian Flyte's stuffed bear in Brideshead Revisited. I've seen 2 film adaptations and I think they may have pronounced it differently in both.
When I read the book, I think I pronounced it Al-oy-zee-us, realized that couldn't possibly be a name and decided it must be Al-oh-ee-shuss but I think neither are correct. Does anyone know?Names I enjoy:
Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie
Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

I pronounce it a-loe-ISH-uhs, and I'm British. I know it's pronounced differently in Germany (ah-loi-ZEE-uws).[FONT=Palatino Linotype][CENTER]My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014[/CENTER][/FONT]

The correct way to pronounce it Al-ah-wish-es. I say Al-U-wish-es. That was my Italian Grandfathers middle name. When I first saw it I had no idea how to say it until I asked my Grandmother. Its a saint which is nice but I would think twice about naming your child that. Teachers, will never get that one right.Name lover, trying to find the perfect names.
