This name is sooo unique and pretty! It reminds me of Sophia but with an original twist. Dell, Della or Delphie could serve as an adorable nickname.

I really love this beautiful name - Delphi makes a good nickname or also used in its own right like actress Delphi Lawrence.

I heard this on a tv show and they called her "Delph."

Considering how the city of Delphi was / is pronounced in English as DEL-fie ("ie" being pronounced like "eye"), and not del-FEE, it's entirely reasonable to pronounce the name Delphia as del-FIE-uh.

This wouldn't be without precedent. Even at the beginning of the 19th century in England, the names Maria and Sophia were pronounced muh-RIE-uh and soh-FIE-uh.
