I'm with @nat108--my best friend was French, and considered this for one of her daughters. The American pronunciation is you-lay-lee (which is actually rather cute), but the French pronunciation is oo-lah-lee, which is much less flattering, imo (too bad not everything sounds better in French!).Ashley

Hence the * I wrote next to the first syllable — "eu" it's really neither yoo nor oo, but rather /ø/ which doesn't exist in English.Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.
