Even if dell-fye-uh is the more correct pronunciation Dell-fee-uh is prettier.

OH MY GOSH BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL NAME! I love it so much, Delphi and Della would be cute nicknames, so much prettier than Delphine.

Considering how the city of Delphi was / is pronounced in English as DEL-fie ("ie" being pronounced like "eye"), and not del-FEE, it's entirely reasonable to pronounce the name Delphia as del-FIE-uh.

This wouldn't be without precedent. Even at the beginning of the 19th century in England, the names Maria and Sophia were pronounced muh-RIE-uh and soh-FIE-uh.

I really love this beautiful name - Delphi makes a good nickname or also used in its own right like actress Delphi Lawrence.

This name is sooo unique and pretty! It reminds me of Sophia but with an original twist. Dell, Della or Delphie could serve as an adorable nickname.
