    This is sooo embarrassing but...

    I actually just found out that one of the names that was on my "favorites" list is not pronounced the way I thought. Which wouldn't be a problem except I preferred the way I was pronouncing it in my head. Is there a legitimate way to keep the pronunciation my dyslexic mind fell in love with? I am afraid I may have just "made up" a name.

    The name is Aurelie- but I pronounced it are-uh-lie (the last syllable rhyming with "fly")

    The only thing I can think of is to either spell it Aurelye, which looks weird, or to make it Aureline, which would have a similar sound.
    Favorite names at the moment:
    Simone Sage
    Andre Larion

    Other names I like: Veronica Vivian Lydia Octavia Bianca Flora Zulima Augustine Elsa Avalon Zamora Carmina

    Ooh, I like pp's suggestion of Aureline. That sounds really pretty.

    Just respell it. Aurelei and Aurelai would also get that pronunciation.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Hmm, this is tough!
    I'd try to have a similar construction to Lorelei, maybe?
    Orrelie (this could still be said like "orally" though, so maybe not with the -ie ending)

    Having "lie" as the final syllable is challenging for spelling in English.
