My French neighbor just named her daughter Maelys. The correct pronunciation is: my-eh-LEES / ma-yel-EES. I imagine many people (at least in the US) won't know how to pronounce it, however, and will mangle it and say "may-liss" or something.

It's actually more like ma-YELL-EES. I guess it doesn't translate that well though.
