I’d pronounce it the second way you have but with an A at the end

Ah-THAH-lee-ya is my gut. It's really pretty.

@Lau i didnt even think of the different ending sounds 🤦‍♀️

In Hebrew it would be pronounced Ah-tuh-lee-uh. Silent H

@Jessica oh really thats good to know

Ath-ah-lee-uh is how I’d pronounce it! There’s a community near where I am called “Atholea” and it’s similar except for the “o” vs “ah” sound in the middle

My daughters got a friend with this name and she pronounces in A-feal-e-a or A-fee- leah

I think second too. It may help to think that’s probably how the average person would pronounce it by assumption as that’s how it reads without knowing ☺️

I would pronounce it Ath-uh-lee-uh

Atar-Lee-uh I’d say
