You'll find more bearers in genealogies dating back to the late 1700s and throughout the 1800s. [noted -ed]
My name is Delece (a variant of Delicia, normally spelt Delice). I’m changing my name to Delicia due to Delece always being autocorrected to Delete in emails & texts. It never used to bother me but now in my early 30’s it really does. I don’t want to stray far from my given name so this seems to be the most obvious choice.
A fictional person with this name was Amy Adams' character in the 2008 film, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Only it was spelled "Delysia".

I agree there's a cannibalistic element to this name that's just off. I can't picture any parent naming a child this; it's better as a stage name chosen by an adult!
Bizarre and cannibalistic.
It's a tad overdone in the gourmet stakes and seems a bit porny. I came across a Delysia in a newspaper column, born around 1930 I'd guess - that's at least a prettier spelling.
I think it sounds like a name a porn star or a stripper would use.
Can also be pronounced De-Lee-See-Ah!
Can be spelled as DELISA ~ {de-Lisa} or {da-Lisa}.
