This name is pronounced MY-lee. (Rhyming with Kylie and Riley)

Pronunciation is MY-leh. My-lee is an abomination and needs to be struck from this record.

Well I have to say it's cool but starting to get way too common, be unique.

This name sounds okay, though not particularly exciting. I hope parents don't start using it as an alternate spelling of the "name" Miley.

How do you say it already. I have been dying to know ever since I read it in a book. The other user comments haven't been helpful; I wish someone name Maile would tell me how to say it! It is an interesting name, though...

I don't get where the idea that the Hawaiian e sound is equal to the English one comes from. It is NOT pronounced My-lee, people. Dante is Dan-tay, not Dan-tee, right? But to be fair, most English speakers have a hard time with the Hawaiian e. But if they actually attempted to pronounce it correctly it should come out My-leh or at least My-lay. The correct pronunciation is hard to explain but I'm just so sick of people who know nothing about the Hawaiian language insisting that it's pronounced like Miley. I adore the name Maile but HATE Miley.

Miley isn't a name. Miley Cyrus' name is Destiny Hope Cyrus. Miley came out of 'Smiley'-her nickname.

I met a Maile the other day. She's Hawaiian. It's pronounced May-leh.

Maile is pronounced My-Lay in Hawaiian. It is one of our treasured adornments used for important events in our lives. Thus the name is given with much love and respect.

My name is Maile. I was born in Hawaii. We have always pronounced it rhyming with Smiley (which remains the phonetic device I use when explaining my name to people).

With my name I have noticed a very slight different between my name and the name Miley, particularly in what part of the name is emphasized. For me the emphasis is a bit stronger on the first part of the name, the Mai, while with Miley I find the emphasis is a bit more on the --ley.

I hope this helps!
