    How to pronounce Eloise

    El-O-ESS (french soft s)

    or

    El-o-EEZ (Z sound)

    I like the first but not the second. How would you say it if you first read it in a classroom?

    definitely the second one.

    it makes more sense to me, and I speak French, I just don't like their name pronunciations.

    'se' in French is pronounced with the z sound. The first pronunciation you listed would not occur to me.
