    Let's Talk About Ilaria!

    I'm going through my list and would really love to hear individual thoughts on the names I adore, but haven't quite made my short list.

    What are your general thoughts on Ilaria?
    What would you name siblings of Ilaria?

    Previous Names: Cordelia, Madeleine, Louisa, Katarina.

    Pronciation is ee-LAH-ree-ə.

    Thanks, Berries!

    Thoughts in this thread?

    Without knowing its pronunciation, my mind went to malaria and hilaria.

    I like it but I wonder if Illyria wouldn't get less mangled in pronunciation? Ilaria has more history as a given name, though, and isn't a place (normally I avoid place names, Illyria is the exception that proves the rule)

    I really like it but am not sure I'd use it. I'm looking forward to seeing what other people think of it.

    Ilaria fits well for me with not just strictly Italian girls' like Fiorella, Caterina, Francesca... but works pretty well with most flowery, longer names. Alexandrina, Madrigal, Isidora, Ariadne...?

    Gorgeous! I say ill-AH-ree-ah. I also like stripedsocks' suggestion of Illyria, and I also like the spelling variant Elaria
