WDYT of Aurelia (prn. Ah-Reh-lee-ah)

I have seen this name posted on various sites and really like it. I am sure there are numerous ways to pronounce this name, but this is the prettiest way in my opinion. WDYT of the name? What would make a good mn? What would make good sibling names? Thanks!

[name]Hi[/name] there! I think [name]Aurelia[/name] is beyond gorgeous! I pronounce it aw-ray-lee-ah, although I’m not sure if this is correct. I’ve also heard aw-reh-lee-uh and uh-reel-ya, so this is definitely one of those “huh?” names when it comes to pronunciation!

I think you were considering [name]Genevieve[/name], and [name]Aurelia[/name] is lovely with [name]Genevieve[/name].

I love [name]Aurelia[/name] (and say Ow-rel-ee-ah) (in my defense, that’s how I first heard it a very long time ago). But would have no problem saying it however the person said it. I think [name]Aurelia[/name] is gorgeous!
It didn’t make the cut for us, but I’d love to see it used and/or meet one (or more!)

I think [name]Aurelia[/name] is beautiful. It’s unique but totally accessible (which is the sweet spot in my opinion). [name]Jill[/name] and [name]Lola[/name] have great suggestions, as always! For middle names I love:

[name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

Many of the above would work as sibling sets as well!

I had a girl named [name]Aurelia[/name] a few years ago in class. She went by the nickname [name]Lia[/name]. FYI for a possible nickname

Makes me think of the movie [name]Love[/name] Actually. It’s a beautiful name!

[name]LOVE[/name] it. Would love to use it myself, but I have such a harsh, [name]German[/name] last name that it ruins [name]Aurelia[/name] - a name I picture a pretty Italian or Spanish woman having. Also reminds me of [name]Love[/name], Actually (which as a guy I probably shouldn’t admit).

Aww, Irishmuth, I know a dozen women who would love a guy who admitted to liking “[name]Love[/name], Actually”!

I think of [name]Aurelia[/name] as a good replacement for the over-done [name]Amelia[/name]. Similar to [name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Auria[/name], it is unique and beautiful, and seems to connote peace (at least to me).
