[Facts] How do you pronounce Azélie?
How to? It doesn't say one on the name page.And these children that you spit on,
As they try to change their worlds,
Are immune to your consultations,
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through.
~Changes, David Bowie
Some of it's magic,
Some of it's tragic,
But I had a good life all the way.

We're considering the name Ember Azélie. We're pronouncing it Ah-zay-lee.

It's just like SugarPlumFairy said (although for a long time I pronounced it just like Renee!). Whenever I come across a name or a word I'm not sure how to pronounce, I go to Forvo. I've posted the link below if you want to hear how the name is said in French.élie/

ah-ze-LEE."é" in French corresponds to [e], which doesn't really exist in standard English. English-speakers usually pronounce it as a diphthong, [eɪ] (i.e. Renée is "Renay") but it's not really the same sound.
