I pronounce it as Or-EL-eea, at its a form of Ora/Orelia. Its also a Magic card, and that's how most people pronounce it when they talk about it, haha! Its a beautiful name with a beautiful meaning.
You can't always trust Nameberry pronounciations; I looked up my grandmother's name Ione, and it said it was pronounced EE-own. My grandma and many others with this name pronounce it EYE-own.aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

In Latin class, back in the day, our teacher had us pronouncing ah-REEL-ee-ah. I actually quite love this name.
