Pronciation is ee-LAH-ree-ə.
Could I have your thoughts in this thread?

I like it but I wonder if Illyria wouldn't get less mangled in pronunciation? Ilaria has more history as a given name, though, and isn't a place (normally I avoid place names, Illyria is the exception that proves the rule)
I really like it but am not sure I'd use it. I'm looking forward to seeing what other people think of it.
Ilaria fits well for me with not just strictly Italian girls' like Fiorella, Caterina, Francesca... but works pretty well with most flowery, longer names. Alexandrina, Madrigal, Isidora, Ariadne...?

Gorgeous! I say ill-AH-ree-ah. I also like stripedsocks' suggestion of Illyria, and I also like the spelling variant ElariaSequoia Orion born November 2014
