Comments for CAMILLA:

I have only known one person with this name, but she pronounced it CAM-il-la. She went by Cammie anyways.

The Italian pronunciation is not kah-MEEL-ah but kah-MEELL-lah.

I must correct a mistake regarding the Italian pronunciation.

Wrongly stated: kah-MEEL-ah
Accurate answer: Kah-MEEL-Lah

No letter is neglected, mind you. Which means, both "L"s must be distinctly spoken. Consider "Isabella," "Bella" for a moment. People seem to at least be enlightened in knowledge that both "L"s are pronounced (whether or not that choose to voice). It is "EEZ-Ah-Beyl-Lah," or "Beyl-Lah." Never "Isa-Bell-Ah." Be mindful of the fact, Italian is a Romance language. Passionate people. Dramatic poeple. Love the words... linger and hold.

"Ca" always makes a hard "Kah." "I" (Mi) is tressed to "EE." Once again, both "L"s are sounded, which is most easily accomplished by placing greater emphasis on the character before (in this case, "I"). And finish with the "La," equaling "Lah."
Now, add your most dazzling, dramatic and prime Italian accent-- VoilĂ . [noted -ed]
