As above, what about simply Aurelie (or-el-LY), if you don't like the way most ppl will pronounce Aurelia?
    Aurelie is pronounced O-ray-LEE.

    I would pronounce it (or-reel-ee-uh) without the accent, and (or-ray-lee-uh) with. I definitely prefer the latter, though : )

    Maybe it's just me, but I pronounce them exactly the same- ow-RELL-ee-ah. That's the closest I can spell it phonetically to how I say it in Spanjsh.

    I don't know where you are, but you can't use the accent mark on official paperwork in the US.

    I'm with dindlee. Something like Au (like August) RELL ee ah is how I've always read it and loved it. Though I'm not French. (Watch "Love Actually"! That's where I first heard the name.)

    Also bonus points for your O RLY joke. I burst out laughing.
