I don't know if Azalea is used as a given name in Spanish- or Italian-speaking countries; nevertheless the flower Azalea is pronounced "ah-sah-LAY-ah" in Spanish and "ah-tsah-LAY-ah" in Italian.

From the internet: The Azalea flower symbolizes temperance, fragility, passion and, in China, womanhood; it also means "take care of yourself for me". It is a member of the rhododendron (Greek: "rose tree") family.
