Actually, if you go with the Italian pronunciation, Guiletta, it's like 'j-hoo-lee-h-ET-tah'. It's actually our pick for LO, if it fits her. Her nn would be 'Lietta' (lee-etta).
And adding the 'etta' to the end removes the stigma of a suicidal teenager. Plus, there's that whole saint thing. And opera...I'll be looking that one up!

I didn't realise that. I don't think I like it as much now. You are right, though. It's Spanish, and I guess that is how you'd say it. I think Juliet/Juliette is more straight forward.

I will never be naming my child after teenager who killed herself.

Technically this is pronounced WHO-lietta, which I don't like as much as Juliette.
