    I know somebody named Aurelia. She has lots of issues with pronunciation even from family members.

    My best friend is named Emily, and i often called her emilia/Emilio in high school.... But I always pronounced it how it was said in Spanish class, eh-meal-ee-o, with the stress on the second syllable. Only after reading it here did I ever hear it pronounced like Emmy-leah. It's mind boggling, hard to get myself to say it that way.

    My daughter's name is Aurelia. We have started putting an accent mark over the e because it is nearly impossible to get the correct prn. uh-reel-ya is the most common. We also get a lot of people that think the name is made up when really it's old. Even though it can take some clarification, I don't regret it and it fits her so well.

    Me and my boyfriend LOVE this name so it's on our future list, but since you have a little Aurelia, mind giving some insight into how it's actually supposed to be pronounced? I just wanna make sure I got it right

    Well, as with any name, there is usually variation among different languages. We pronounce it like we pronounce Australia but without the st! Au-RAY-Lee-Uh. The A is such a slight sound, it could easily be uh/aw/au/o. So when spoken, be prepared for those options if the person you're saying it to is trying to spell it (: Another concern is "lia" not being Lee-uh but a very rushed "lya." We call her Rayley a lot to really stress that its Au-RAY-Lee-Uh and not Au-RAIL-Yuh. But if you like the second better, it's really up to you! I wouldn't consider it wrong on principle, just wrong for us!
