Colleague has had baby girl ans called her Lilla. Is it Li-la or ley-la or lie-la?

Ask the colleague. Spelt like that I would pronounce Lill-a (like Miller).

Poor child!

I'd say it "Lill-la"; but it could be any of your suggestions. I think you'll have to engineer it so that one of the parents says it before you need to.

Lee-la.....in my limited experience.

I would also read that as Lill-a.

I know two children called Lilla, both pronounced Lee-La.

Thanks everyone. Will go with Lill-a and hope for the best!

I know a Lilla also pronounced Lee-la, but I always read it as Lill-a

God Lill-a sounds like a speech impediment. Hope its Lyla spelt stupidly....

I read it as Lill-a.

I know a Lila (Lye-la)
