    I say eh-LEE-see-ah, like the Spanish pronunciation of Alicia, but I think eh-LIH-see-ah and eh-LIH-zhee-a are also correct. You can pretty much just pick your favorite, just know that there will be some confusion no matter what you choose.

    I say it ehl-ee-SEE-ah. Although the emphasis might be on the second syllable instead, I think it depends on my mood. Hopefully @dantea sees this thread, since it's her daughter's MN. I can't exactly remember how she says it, although I think it might be close to my pronunciation?
