Pronouncing Vasilissa the Beautiful
Or Vasilisa.. I read shr is a rare name but common in old tales. What do you think of her?

vah-see-lease-uh, I think (vah-see + lisa). You can find the pronunciation on Forvo. Search Василиса (it's the Russian spelling).
It's gorgeous but it'd be mispronounced all the time.♥ My Loves ♥

I'm more familiar with the spelling as Basilissa or Basilla. She was a saint born into a Roman noble family in the 3rd century. She was beheaded because she was a Christian convert and refused to marry a pagan nobleman. I would pronounce it the same way as casilda has stated in the previous post but with a "bah" in front of it.All the best,
