    eh-mee-lyah. The "Em" as in Emily/Emma/Emmeline/Emerson/Emmet.

    (But English vowels are lazy so I see why it could sound like Amelia.)
    Bertrand -bertie-, Wilfred, Léon, Axel, Cuthbert -cubby-, Maxentius, Aubrey, Phoebus, John-Henry.
    Émilienne, Livia, Annabella -abbey-, Maud, Rosamund, Kimborough, Clemency, Elizabeth-Charlotte.

    I pronounce it the way the pp(s) have said. Like Amelia with an E. I love it

    I will say that I'm in the South (US) so the extra syllable would not really be pronounced (in the area I am in, anyway).
    As in, it would be pronounced 'Eh-meel-yah' not 'eh-mee-lee-ah' just like Amelia would not be pronounced 'ah-mee-lee-ah' but 'ah-meel-yah.'
    Lazy southern accents

    Eh-mee-lee-uh. However, I knew a little girl with this name once and her parents pronounced it Em-ill-ee-uh (sort of like Emily-uh or Emma-Leah), which I think is pretty, but I bet no one ever pronounces it that way.

    eh-MEE-lee-uh, but when I say it fast it sounds pretty much the same as Amelia.
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (10), Madelyn Esther (7), Genevieve Susan (2), and angel baby Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014).

    Hoping to welcome another little one into our family in 2015.
