    I pronounce it ohr-RAY-lee-ah. I used to pronounce it ah-REEL-ee-ah, but I've since come to prefer the European version. oh-rel-yah is nice, too, though.

    oh-RAYL-yuh for me too, but saying it quickly the first syllable usually comes out as er.

    I'm from NZ, and I pronounce it much the same as @fiammetta does: or-rel-ee-uh.
