User comments for Aloysius
Dutch pronunciation is ah-lo-EE-see-us. Also spelled Aloïsius in Dutch. [noted -ed]
Aloysius is my grandfather's middle name and he's always pronounced it al-o-wish-us. I don't know if that's an approved alterantive pronunciation. He may pronounce it that way because of his Irish accent.
Al-oh-wish-us is the pronunciation most often used in English, and the one that I have heard the most, since it is a name used by many of my "Great" relatives and the deacon at my parish (we call him Deacon Al.) The other pronunciation A-loy-see-us, as seen in the description of the name on this site, is a Dutch pronunciation.
The German pronunciation is ah-LOI-zee-uws. [noted -ed]
