I would guess Owl-ee-yuh if I had to.
My kids have boring names that everyone knows how to say...

I'd say aah-LEE-ya like the singer.

Although some are AAH-lee-ya like the character on Corrie.

There's a girl at youngest DS nursery, her parents pronounce it 'ah-lay-ah' No idea what would be 'correct' though...
