Just that really. I saw it written down today and I think it looks pretty but I have no idea how you'd pronounce it, any ideas?

Reminds me of Xylaria, genus of fungus.

zy-lee-ah

If you can believe it, I know a Xara (Zara!!)

I wanted to call ds Xavier, as I do think 'x' names are the coolest on a bank card. But was vetoed.

Zy-li-ah. I'd guess. Horrible though, sounds like a food additive.

Like sillier. And sorry, but I think it is a bit of a silly name.

No 'sillier' than Tilly or Milly imo. I quite like it OP. And names can most definitely look pretty or clumsy when written down!

Z-eye-lee-ah. Not sure how I feel about it.

Zy lee ah

It sounds like a medicine.

According to this site it's zy-lee-a. I've never heard it before but it's sweet smile

The girl in DS2's year group is really sweet and seems to suit the name.

I know one who is ZILL-ee-uh. Before I knew her I would have guessed at ZY-lee-uh.

Zye-lah
