    X-Men! Not something I would choose but at least the spelling is correct.

I think if it was spelled aleea it would look weird, almost needs the i in there to break it up visually. and I had no issue pronouncing it, first time I read the name I knew how to pronounce. it's unusual but I wouldn't class it as you-neek
    It's also an ethnic name. It's Scandinavian, I think the original spelling is Alija (j=y). Many Scandi names are often 'translated' over to English as we tend to have trouble with all the silent and replacement consonants.

    ahhh ok. I'm polish and the j has the same y sound too so that totally makes sense. that's actually really pretty as a Scandinavian name. another Scandi girls name I've seen that I think is just gorgeous is lumi.

    That looks and sounds pretty in it's 'normal' spelling/format.

    I came across what I was assuming was an eastern european name (going by the surname) that was Jerko.

    It probably has a beautiful meaning and even sounds lovely using the native tongue but saying it in English ruins it.

    is that Serbian? I can pretty guess how it's supposed to be pronounced (yerrrr-kohh) but you're right, in English it would just be jer-ko

    I highly doubt that one is Serbian but you are correct on the pronunciation if it were.

    I personally think her mother was idiotic for naming her child Isis. It may have ancient and charming origins, but you'd have had to be living under a rock not to be aware of its offensive meaning in this decade.
    As a side note, the Earl of Grantham in Downton Abbey had a dog called Isis...the producers had to kill her off, due to the offence it caused.
