    How would you pronounce Evelia?

    While searching for a 2nd middle name for Willow to fill in Willow ____ Grace, I have fallen in love with Willow Evelia Grace. I've been googling to see how people pronounce it and it seems like almost everyone pronounces it differently. If I were to use it, I would want it to be pronounced Ev-eh-lee-a. Just like Evelyn but replace lyn with lia. I really love it but I feel like everyone would always pronounce it wrong. WDYT?

    I would have said eh-VEE-lee-ah. Saying it your way, I would say it like eh-veh-LEE-ah which to me, sounds odd. But I get what you're trying to do and don't think it would be too hard to get people to say it your way. Plus, it's in the middle so it's not as big a deal.

    Willow Evelia Grace is lovely. ^_^

    Ehv-eh-LEE-uh would be how I'd pronounce it. Beautiful name.
