Just seen this name in a book and think it's just beautiful. I am too old now for babies but just in case anyone is looking for a lovely girls name

A name that sounds like orally is going to be tricky for a teenaged girl.

🤦‍♀️ Oh yes. I never thought of that. Beautiful name in France then 😁

It’s a lovely name. I much prefer it to Aurelia but Aurelia is more popular in the U.K., possibly because of pronunciation issues.

nn Oral

It's beautiful, just a shame about where the English nicknames will inevitably go with it.

No, just doesn’t work in English.

Too orally! Lorelei?

Depends on how you pronounce it, I think.

Aurelia can be Ow-rail-eee-uh or Or-reel-eee-uh so possibly your Aurelie could be similar? The Ow sound (like when you hurt yourself) would make it less likely to be problematic (but its also less pretty imo)….

First thought was orally, then aurally, neither great
