My name is Elisa and my family pronounces it E-liss-a. People I don't know often pronounce it el-EES-a, which I'm ok with. It sounds pretty too. It's the Spanish pronunciation. People who have a background in biochemistry will pronounce it Eliza (like the ELISA test.....Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay).

I always pronounce this el-EES-a, with a soft s sound like 'sea' and a long ee sound, because a relative of mine in Austria pronounces it like that. In the US, would this be pronounced the same as Eliza, or the way I say it?
