Oh-Lis-sia

Are you sure you don't mean Oliwia? The polish version of Olivia?

LoftDweller Mon 02-Jan-17 17:41:24

confused

No idea op!

Soubriquet Mon 02-Jan-17 17:41:56

No...liv-cia not lissia

But it doesn't flow very well

Is that someone's name or a name you are considering?

Is it English? (not sure how to blend the middle "wc" bit?

I genuinely have no idea-I keep trying to break it down

Oll-aa-weee-see-a?

Oll-ee-wa-see-a?

Oll-ee-whic-ee-a?

Am intrigued....

DD went to school with an "Oh Lee sia" which is a possibity. Her name wasn't spelt like that though!

Oh-leev-cha?

galaxygirl45 Mon 02-Jan-17 17:52:15

I'd say Olif-cha or Oliv-cha. Ci is usually "ch" and w sounds like "v" or "f" if it's Polish or Czech.

If I am familiar enough I'd ask without even trying. In something more formal I might say is that Ms Surname? Can I just check your first name?

I would say it almost like Olivia, but not quite. Olivzha is probably the closest way I can write it.

Anything Eastern European with a W in I would presume to be pronounced as a ZHA and C as SH. So Oli-zhi-sha. Whose name is it? Have you asked them?

Mozartinmyfanjo Mon 02-Jan-17 18:04:53

It pronounces Oliv-cha (tongue touching roof of your mouth when you say ch) as mentioned above. It is Polish 'pet' name for Olivia not an actual name, so you can actually use Olivia.

Olee-Wic-ier. I doubt its that though.
