Pronunciation[edit]

The literary English pronunciation of the nymph Himalia from Greek mythology seems to be hye-mal'-ee-a, with the accented syllable rhyming with pal. However, the moon Himalia is sometimes listed in astronomical sources as hi-mahl'-ee-a or even him'-a-lee-a. This appears to be by analogy with the familiar Sanskrit mountain name Himālaya, which is usually him'-a-lay'-a but etymologically hi-mahl'-a-ya (cf. the OED).

However, you'd expect the a to be long, as in Saturnalia (sat'-ur-nay'-lee-a). This is not a common name, and should be followed up. — kwami 06:31, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
