    How would you pronounce Thalia?

    A character in a movie I saw recently was named Thalia but I don't recall how it was pronounced in the movie. I mentioned the name to my brother last night (pronouncing it Thay-lia) and he corrected me and pronounced it as Tah-lia or Tall-ia and that the H is not pronounced. My boyfriend insists that it's Thal-ia (Thal rhyming with Val). How have you heard it pronounced? Googling it gave me mixed results.

    I am Greek, I speak Greek, and in Greek, Thalia is properly pronounced THAY-lee-ah (how you said it originally).

    Well, someone's a PJO fan.
    In the US and UK, it's generally pronounced TAH-lee-uh. Though in it's original Greek, according to dantea, THAY-lee-uh is correct.
