I pronounce it "NAH-di-ah" or "NAH-dyah". This is a pretty name, although I was introduced to it in a grim way; the legendary French singer, Edith Piaf, as a young woman in the Paris underworld, was acquainted with a gentle, naive girl named Nadia who was forced by her "lover" to become a prostitute and not long after drowned herself in the Seine. I still associate this name with the pretty, fair-haired, tragic ingenue that Piaf befriended.
