    I could have put an h on the end to make it more clear but I like this spelling a bit better.
    Beautiful name, with correct spelling OP. Congrats xx

    Congratulations Sally! I'm so glad to see this post and see your little one has arrived! I love the name and am another Lie-lah pronouncer. I had a friend and neighbor who was a Lilah many years ago, and she was a delightful old lady who used to feed me and taught me cross-stitch, so I have always loved the name xx

    I would say Lie-lah but would be unsure.
    I have known 2 girls with that spelling, one pronounces it Lie-lah, and the other one pronounces it Lill-lah.

    I read it as lill-ah. I have a friend whose name is Liela (pronounced Lee-lah) so that has probably influenced the way I read it.

    Lie-la for me. It's a beautiful beautiful name. I love it so much. Unfortunately we couldn't use it as our surname starts with Li....so it was just a big mouthful.

    Lie-la.

    Kate Moss's daughter has the same name and I believe she pronounces it the same (Lie-la).
