It's pronounced yoo-LAY-lee.

...if it's French, though, the pronunciation is probably more like yoo-lay-LEE.

It's okay. This was Scarlett O'Hara's aunt's name, who lived in Charleston, SC.

The song "Eulalie" was written in 1851 by H. S. Cornwell & Stephen C. Foster, who also composed "Oh Susanna" & "Beautiful Dreamer". It's about the premature death of the bride Eulalie and the singer's wish for a peaceful afterlife.

I have seen it spelled Eulalee in a book. I didn't like it, either.

The pronunciation is uu-la-LI (see the key). The French "eu" hasn't an equivalent in English, but it's a bit like the "u" in "jump", for example. The name is very rare in France, and seems old-fashioned. [noted -ed]

Actually, I believe the French EU is pronounced much like YOO, just like we normally pronounce it. If it was Ulalie, then you'd be somewhat correct but in French I believe it's pronounced yoo-lah-LEE. I take French in school. In English I would pronounce it YOO-la-LEE. Never yoo-LAY-lee. That reminds me of ukulele.

Marie-Amelie's comment is right.
The French eu is pronounced UU according to the key, not YOO. It's kind of an 'err' sound. So, in French, it would be pronounced err-la-LEE. [noted -ed]

Certainly underused, and a nice alternative to names like Emily.

Eulalie is the titular character of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe.

As far as I can tell, the British English pronunciation is YOO-lə-lee, and the American/Canadian English pronunciation is yoo-LAY-lee.

Eulalie is a great name! It's cute, old-fashioned, a bit mysterious, and very unusual without being made-up.

Reminds me of "ooh la la" because the proper French pronunciation makes an "uu" or "ooh" sound not "you". I prefer Eulalia.

I've seen it with the pronunciation You-lily.
