    "lie-lah" was my first thought, followed by "lil-ah"

    I know someone who has a child called Lila and my brain can never remember how it wants to say it sometimes I say lie-lah other times lee-lah but I think her name is meant to be lie-lah

    My thoughts were Lilo and Stitch too!!

    So I'd pronounce it Lee-Lah.

    Thank you everyone! It's pronounced Lie-la, like most of you said. I was expecting some people to mistake it for Layla, but quite a few IRL have said Leela. My brother reckons that's because the surname 'Li' is pronounced 'Lee'.

    I could have put an h on the end to make it more clear but I like this spelling a bit better.

    Default How would you pronounce 'Lila'?

    Lie - la (lah)

    What a beautiful name, we named our girl Lyla there are 4 ways to spell it
    1. Lila
    2. Lyla
    3. Lylah
    4. Lilah

    If this is how you intend to pronounce it then I think Lila is fine! We were tossing up with that way of spelling but ended up with Lyla.
