spelling Aliza 'Aleeza' so it it pronounced properly?
what do you think of this spelling? Aliza is a Hebrew name meaning joyful, and is pronounced uhl-ee-zuh. I worry if it is spelt Aliza people will say a-ly-za / a-lie-za

I would keep the proper spelling. Aliza is a Hebrew girls name pronounced correctly as ah-LEE-zah. Aleeza looks very unattractive and ruins the history of the name. I would rather have the original spelling and get a couple of mispronunciations than to have a juvenile spelling like Aleeza. It's an easy fix, after being told the correct pronunciation I don't think anyone should have too much of a hard time pronouncing it. If you are bothered or worried about the pronunciation, I would choose a different name instead of modifying the spelling.

Aliza is pronounced A Li Za so Aleeza is not going to do it.

If you want aleeza then spell it Aleeza
If you want uh-ly-zuh then spell it Aliza or Eliza.
