I have a cousin named Adelia, but her name is pronounced: Uh-DEEL-ee-uh, with the emphasis on the second syllable, with a long E sound.

This is a beautiful name.

This is a family name for us, and we always pronounce it "uh-DEEL-ya." Essentially, Delia with an a on the front. It's a lovely name, though, however it is pronounced.

I'm afraid this name could lead to some stupid ''a-DEAL-yah!'' jokes, but it sounds quite pretty.

Pronounced Ah-deh-lyah in Spanish. If no accent mark is present, vowels are combined. The name would be pronounced Ah-deh-lee-ah if it were written Adelía.
