It's pronounced PEE-lar.

I'm fairly certain that the stress is actually on the second syllable: pee-LAR.
-- Elspeth  5/26/2008
Pronounced "pee-LAHYR" (rolling "r") with the stress placed on the second syllable, not the former. The first comment is incorrect.

Pilar is sort of a nice-sounding name, but since it's one letter short of actually being Pillar, and since I speak English, I'm not quite certain how or whether I'd use it.

I read a book in which one of the characters was named Pilar (Dreaming in Cuban) and because of it, I could never use this name. Not that I liked it much to begin with, but the book is so weird and disturbing that I would never be able to use the name without thinking of the crazy things the women in the book did.
