I would generally go for THAH-lee-ah but I think I'm probably wrong
It's a pity as I love the th- sound at the start!I'm twenty with a furbaby named Frederick

Thisbe, Thalassa, Thanatos, Thrasos, etc.
To break down why it's thay-lee-a and not tahl-yah:
It's written like this -- theta alpha lambda epsilon iota alpha. Those sound like this -- th a l ee ah . The alpha like most vowels, is pronounced differently depending on what's around it. So the name is correctly said thay-lee-ah and it's also correct to say thah-lee-ah (though all my Greek people say it thay). Either way, it has to have the TH sound to be correct because of the theta.
I know the rest of you didn't ask, but Fey asked about the TH so I felt the need to go into details. :PMother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy
