    I would automatically pronounce it TAL ya, and I think its really nice. I wouldn’t pronounce it any other way, because I think it is intuitive to pronounce it TAL ya and wanting ta LEE ya is going to create pronunciation problems.

    My 15 year old sister is named Talia, prounounced Tal-ya, and we’ve never had pronunciation problems with her name.

    I’ve known a couple girls/women with this name and I like it. :) I would pronounce it TALL-ya. I do know one who pronounces it tal “rhymes with pal” ya though.

    I like it, but mainly because I adore Tali/Tally/Tallie as a nn (too bad it’s off-limits for me–my sister is Natalie “Tallie”!). I probably wouldn’t use just Talia, although I like its Hebrew roots. I’ve heard both pronunciations, and I never know which to expect, so I wouldn’t say it’s definitively TAL-yah.

    I prefer Tallulah and Natalie/Natalia in general, though, and even Anatalia (love this, actually!) and Catalina…

    I say it more like TAH-lee-uh, stress on Tah, than Tal-yuh, but both are really similar to me. Kind of a 2-and-a-half syllable problem, probably not enough to be an issue.

    I personally don’t like the name much, though. My sister loved it for a little while, but I never really found it all that appealing. It’s pretty, but something about it just doesn’t work for me.

    I’d probably say Tah-lee-uh, but only because I have a cousin called Dalia, and the names seem so similar. I’m also not a huge fan of the -yah sound. I think it’s quite a pretty name with a beautiful meaning (I somehow find it a lot more appealing than Natalia) but it’s definitely off limits for me, due to my aforementioned cousin. :)

    I’d prn it Tal-yuh. It makes me think of the girl who was featured on the Ellen show several times and recently passed away from cancer :( She was very sweet though

    Ash, I think Tallie is a really cute nn for Natalie; I’ve never heard that but I like it much better than Nat! Our goddaughter is Tallulah nn Tally. :)
