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!).Lise

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.Bertrand -bertie-, Wilfred, Léon, Axel, Cuthbert -cubby-, Maxentius, Aubrey, Phoebus, John-Henry.
