When you read "Mila" how do you pronounce it?

Like MY-la or ME-la?

Thanks :)

  • I would say My-La, but I'm a native English speaker. My boyfriend speaks spanish and would pronounce it Me-La.

  • I instantly think of Mia when I see it, so I say me-la.

  • Seems pretty 50/50. I want it pronounced like ME-la, but I want it spelt Mila. Just wondering how often people will pronounce it wrong :).
