This is a gorgeous and centuries-old name that could be found in the Roman Empire. Pronounced commonly as ah-RAYL-ya or ah-RAY-lee-ah.

This is my mother's name, and the pronunciation we use is Uh-RILL-yah, not the long A sound. I think it probably just formed from the "accent" people have in my region.

Pronounced
- ow (like "ow, I stubbed my toe")
- rel (rhymes with Dell or bell or sell)
- yah (like the karate people on TV yell ha-YAH! when they hit people)

This name has been on my list for awhile. It is my top favorite girls name at the moment.

The way we pronounce this name in our Latin class is ow-RAY-lia.

Aurelia is my name and because I am Romanian, as in Latin (apart from a few diphthongs and triphthongs) every written letter is also a sound, thus we break the syllables down and pronounce it like this a:-u:-ré-li-a.
I get called Ariela a lot as people have difficulties pronouncing it right but I prefer that to Orelia which means ear in Portuguese. It makes the name ugly that way. Please do not pronounce it Oh-rey-lia. Not even Italians say it that way.
