"We pronounce our daughter, Hali like Ha-Lee. Mostly because if you saw the name Ali, would you say Aye-lee? Cali as Cay-lee? Nope." Feb. 13, 2016:
"I am Hali (Hay-lee). To pronouce it Halle is incorrect and defies the rules of English. In order for it be Halle, it would have to be spelled Halli, with 2 L's. Hali only has one L. A vowel followed by a consinant with a vowel behind it, makes the first vowel long. Therefore, Hali is pronounced HAY-LEE" Aug. 3, 2014:
"For those who think Hali is pronounced H al ee it isn't I chose the name because my best friend growing up was Hali. HALI was 100% greek. born in greece and moved to the US when she was 2. it is pronounced with the long A sound not the short a sounds. Sorry if i burst your bubble. The other ha lee or h al ee sounds are from other areas like france. when it drives from halina the name is pronounced h uh lee not hal ee. Sorry again for those pronouncing it hal ee holly or any other way other than the 2 mentioned above." Feb. 1, 2014:
"Hi, I'm 27 (1983) and love my name, Hali. It is also pronounced like Halle Berry. My great grandmother was also named Halley which was pronounced like mine, Hali. I have never met another person with the spelling Hali. Glad to see I'm not alone. I love my name. And I also read somewhere that it is greek and means both "Looking at the sea" and " a precious stone"." Jun. 26, 2010:
"I like this name - its my sisters name. I have no idea why my mum spelt it like that, but I like it cuz its unique. Its easier to spell anyway..." Oct. 22, 2008:
"Hi im Hali too. I am 14yrs old and never knew anyone who spelled or pernounced it the same as me. You say it Hay-Lee. Thats cool that I found some people with a name like me." Mar. 11, 2008:

"Sorry to burst those of you who pronounce it as Hallie, Halle, or Halley. In the Bible, Joshua 19:25, it is Hali with a long A, so it is Haylee, Hailey." Jul. 21, 2019:
"I am Hali, pronounced with a short "a" (hal-ee). I am 63. Very rarely does anyone pronounce or spell my name correctly. I also answer to Hayley, Holly, Sally, Heather, Helen, Heidi, and so on... people really struggle with it. It's strange to see my name grow in popularity as it has recently." Dec. 20, 2016:
"My daughter is going on 13 and I wanted to spell her name Hallie, but after she was born and I was so tired from labor, my husband looks at me while filling out her birth certificate and says I think its spelled Hali. I love the spelling and I'm so glad that we chose this name. It is absolutely beautiful! We pronounce it Hal E. She also loves her name! Hali Marie!" Jul. 30, 2014:
"Daughters name is Hali. I took her name from a Greek baby names book. In that book the correct pronounciation was Hay Lee. I liked the name and the spelling so I went with it. A goddess is what it meant.Since I had daughters it was important to find a way for their dad to be connected to their names since Jr was out, so each has 18 letters in their name and the Lee sound somewhere in the name." May. 27, 2012:
"We just named our daughter Hali, pronounced like Halle Berry. We love the name, and appartenly in Old Greek, it means "the sea", which is appropriate as we are a family of sailors. I'm sure she will love her name, it's fairly uncommon still." Dec. 19, 2011:
"My name is Hali but it is prounced as Hailey.. alot of people confuse it with Halle one of my teachers actually asked me if my mom spelt my name wrong." Mar. 15, 2011:
"We named our daughter Hali. We decided to pronounce it "Hay-Lee" which seemed like a good idea. Turns out, after 20+ years most people think it should be pronounced "Hal-E" which causes a little confusion. If you name your daughter Hali (we still like it), I would pronounce it "Hal-e" to avoid a life time of mistakes." Dec. 1, 2010:
"Hey I'm HALI too. I think it means "looking over the sea" in Greek...and I'm pretty sure it's a greek boys name. But it's awesome and people usually remember it b/c it's unique." Feb. 21, 2009:
"my name is hali but it useally is speeled wrong or pronounced wrong and im named after a movie star" Oct. 27, 2007:
"Well i am 12 and i am getting tierd of not nowing to no how tro pronoce my name people say it rong all the time and spell it rong to. I have never met eny one with the same name and was shoced that i found my name on the enternet. I wish i new how to pronoce it." Jul. 9, 2007:
"My name is Hally, prounounced just like "Hallie" or "Sally." I get a lot of mispronuciations, including Holly (understandable - especially when handwritten, the a can look like an o) or, the one that really irritates me, "Haley." (Hay-lee) I think the thing that is the most upsetting is when people (usually males, interestingly), mispronounce my name, I'll let them know how it's correctly pronounced, and then they say, "Close enough" or something like that. No......"Haley" and "Holly" are some other girls, they're not me. I'm Hally. I'll even ask then how they would like it if I called them by the wrong name, say "Jane" instead of "James" or "Mark" instead of "Mike." Somehow, they usually just don't get it. It's like, if it's a unique name it's somehow OK not to learn to pronounce it right. I think the stupidest thing anyone ever said to me about my name is they said, "Your name is HALLY? Wow! Are you related to Halle Berry?"" Jul. 22, 2006:
"Actually, my dog's name is Hali, but we pronounce it (Hal-ee). When people see the spelling, they usually say (Hay-lee). I took her name from the Hawaiian version of Harry (Hale) but changed the 'E' to an 'I' because NO ONE pronounced it correctly then. I think it is a beautiful name!!" Jun. 9, 2006:
"I also pronounce my name as (Hay-Lee) and noone can say or spell my name either....they always add y even when I spell it to them....I am the oldest Hali that I know of born in 66...." Jun. 4, 2006:
"My name is Hali (pronounced Ha-Lee)but people always pronounce it "Hay-Lee". It bothers me..but i love my name!" May. 27, 2006:
"My daughter is named Hali. No one gets it right. They all say Hal-lee.
Reading the comment above makes me feel better because I was begining to think my wife had gotten it wrong.
Hali loves her name but hates correcting people." May. 2, 2006:
"That's my name too! Sorry if that burst your bubble, but it's actually pronounced (Halley)" Mar. 16, 2006:
"my name is hali....and i have always wanted to have like, one of those name keychains, but no one ever sells them spelled like that, very depressing" Mar. 4, 2006:
"I was born in 1972 and my name is Hali and its pronounced (H-Alley), like Alley with an H. I love it. Thanks, Mom!" Feb. 8, 2006:
