It is greatly disturbing when people pronounce this name as a-LEE-sha or a-LEESH-a or anything that has the 'sh' sound in it. This name is Spanish, and the Spanish pronunciation is ah-LEE-sya, with the 'i' and the 'a' run together.

My name is Alicia and I pronounce my name a-LEE-sha. I have spent a lot of my time correcting people when they mispronounce my name. Though I do have to say that Alicia, which ever way it is pronounced, is a very pretty and feminine sounding name.

My name is Alicia, and in Argentina it is pronounced aleesia. However, as I am an English teacher students tend to call me Alice, but I hate it. I like the sound of my name in Spanish. Why should I be called in English?

My name is Alicia and I pronounce it a-LEE-sha, but I do like it pronounced other ways but I like a-LEE-sha the best.

In European Spanish Alicia sounds very much like Alethea.

My name is Alicia, and my pronunciation situation is bizarre - as pointed out, not an uncommon thing for we Alicias! It's pronounced a-LEE-sha (which I hate). My mother pronounces it a-LISH-a, though her South African accent may have something to do with it, my father completely avoids using my name, and most of my teachers pronounce it a-LISS-ee-ah (which, though by far the best pronunciation, sounds very formal), so I am baffled as to who exactly chose my pronunciation, and it seems so strange to change it now. However, probably the biggest downside to this name is that it really doesn't lend itself to a nickname that does justice to the femininity of the original.

Alicia is my name as well, and I was raised with it being pronounced a-LEE-sha. It's a bit of a tricky name though as people will call me a-LEE-sia, a-LISH-a, a-LISS-ia, you get the idea. I also get Amy, Adelaide, Alice, Allison, Ally, and Alexis and need to remind people it's a-LEE-sha.

Pronounced AH-li-SEE-ah. It really bugs me when people pronounce it ah-lee-sha. If it was pronounced like that, it would be spelt Aleesha.
