ThatsAmore Says:


I know an Aliza pronounced: Ah-lie-zuh / Ah-lie-za

(Not as an "El" clone, or with "Uh", or even "Aye", but with "Ah" ... which gives a pleasingly distinctive A sound.)

ninaganci Says:


I just legally changed my name to Aliza! After three years of making countless lists of names, it was very clear to me that Aliza was my name. And now it is. I pronounce it Uh-Lee-Zuh, and my middle name is Gabriella. So my full name is Aliza Gabriella.

I actualy like this name, I find it sweet.

KatlynLea Says:


The actual pronunciation of this name is uh-LEE-zuh. It kind of bugs me when people use it as an Eliza clone.

I agree!
I pronounce Eliza ee-ly-zuh and Aliza uh-ly-zuh.
I think Aliza is much easier to say!
