    Default How would you pronounce 'Lila'?

    Just trying to see if we've made a mistake with our chosen spelling.:. Should have posted this before I sent off for the birth certificate

    I don't know why but I see that as lee-la. Perhaps because I know a Lie-la spelt Lyla so I assume the other must be lee-la.

    ETA - curious to know which is right now lol

    This... mainly because it's the name of a family member.

    It looks like Lie-La (to rhyme with Isla) but I'd still pronounce it Leela as that's a common name where Lie-la isn't?

    I'd say Lee-la but that's because I've seen Lyla pronounced Lie-la. Suppose it could work either way though
