    Dahl-yuh (Dahl rhymes with all, sounds like doll and yuh rhymes with duh- 2 syllables)
    Dahl-ee-uh (same 1st syllable, long E 2nd syllable, uh rhymes with duh- 3 syllables or some other way?

    I say DOLL-ee-ah. But I know many people who say DAL-ya (rhymes with the first syllable of Alice) or DAL-ee-ah, and a few DOLL-ya.
