How would you pronounce Calista? And it is pretentious?

I like it pronounced Ka-LEE-stah and had chosen it should we have a girl. But now seems I am pronouncing it wrong... and it's supposed to be Ka-LIST-ah... and I don't like that AT ALL. hmm

Ca-liss-ta is how I owuld pronounce it!
I like it, but was a big Ally McBeal fan and think Calista Flockhard (sp?) is great

Don't like it.

I want to say, "I won't be in work this week, I've been to the doctor, I've got Calista. I've been signed off for 6 months".
