I think it is Aw-ray-lia but mentioned it a friend who said Aw-ree-lia. Just curious...

Aw-ree-lia usually, or Ow-ray-lia if German, but not Aw-ray-lia.

Aw-ray-lee-ah like the latin for golden.

More like Oh-RAY-lee-a, really.

Aoo-re-li-ah - In an Italian accent, am Italian but have no idea how to go about typing an Italin accent grin

I really like it for a future hypothetical DD but DP really struggles to say it!

Aur-ree-lee-a

Also know one in RL

I agree with the other posters - the Aurelia I met pronounced it "Or reel ee a".

Like your friend.

My daughter is Aurelia we pronounce it like you, like the Latin for golden.
In Italy and Portugal where it's a popular name that is how they pronounce it.
Lovely name choice, my dd gets compliments on it regularly

Or-EEL-ee-a sounds all wrong.
