    Pronunciation question: Talia

    Is the first A like tAll or like tAp?

    Do you pronounce the -ia as ee-uh or yuh? (so it feels like 3 syllables or like 2 syllables?)

    I say it like Natalia, without the Na.

    The first A is almost always pronounced like in "tall," I think. I've heard both TAHL-ee-uh and tah-LEE-uh.

    I pronounce it: tah-lee-uh, like Natalia without the Na beginning. I think that's the general "correct" way.
    I have met a Talia who says it "Tul-lee-uh".
