I first came across this name because there is a character on Orange is the New Black with this name and I've grown quite fond of it.
Literally just stumbled upon this name, but it's really pretty. I love the spelling. I sort of incorrectly pronounced it in my head as Al-ay-da, but I like that pronunciation. Cool name!
My middlen ame is Aleida, which I got from my mother's Dutch grandmother. I have 2 Dutch grandparents, who both pronounce it ah-LAY-duh. Although we live in Sweden, I actually hear it as a-LEY-da. All depends on your own country's language. But the Dutch people I know are very thorough on the LAY part.
Used this name for one of my characters who was Dutch. The name is so beautiful. But I pronounce it as Ah-lee-duh.
Lee instead of lie.
