"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
How is your daughter's name pronounced OP?
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.
Lie - la (lah)
What a beautiful name, we named our girl Lyla there are 4 ways to spell it
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.
