How would you pronounce Lorica?
I was watching My 600lb Life last night and there was a girl on the show named Larisa. Naturally I thought it would be spelled the way I imagine it to be, but when her name came on the screen it was Lorica and I just kind of cringed a bit. I wanted to call her "Lor-ree-ka" so badly and every time it came on the screen I just asked myself why. Given some names do well when "s" is replaced by a "c" such as Alycin but Lorica ending in the "ca" makes me want to give it the harsher sounding "KA". I just don't get it pronounced as Larisa.

LORE-ih-cah. Sort of like Lorca - the whale or Federico Garcia Lorca - but with an i sound in the middle. The Latin word lorica is pronounced Lo-RYE-cah, so I could see that too.
Usually in English the soft c is followed by i, e, or y, or oe and ae clusters. If this comes from a language with pronunciation rules I don't know about, that's fine. If it's a creative take on Larissa, it seems silly.Girls:
Nickname-able: Susanna, Johanna, Paloma, Lucille, Harriet, Beatrix, Rosemary, Juniper, Marigold, Annabeth, Gwendolen, Kathleen, Tabitha
Short and to-the-point: Flora, Jane, Laura, Anne, Cecile, Susan, Kaia
So much easier: Hugh/Hugo, Wilfred, Basil, Augustin, Edmund, Arlo, Timothy, Frederick
