So, I am so bad with girl names, I never know what I like or want! I came across the name "Jolie" it means pretty in french! The french pronunciation is zhoh-LEE, however, I am thinking everyone (including myself) would more likely pronounce it Jo-LEE, is that stupid? Idk, I just don't want to butcher the name by not using the proper pronunciation. So thoughts on this name and/or the pronunciation?
You'll get "as in angelina?" a lot.
There is no way people wouldn't associate it with the movie star, all the time. Pass.

Lol yeah, I figured that! But I'm ok with that, I am mainly in love with the meaning, I also love french! (Even though I have only taken one semester of French.. In Jr. High lol)
I like it. I have a friend named Jolie and she is AWESOME. I vote, yes.

:) Does she pronounce it jo-LEE or zhoh-LEE?

I would pronounce it the French way. I think it's lovely!
I love french J names, the Z pronunciation is lovely. I like it the name when its that pronunciation.
I like the name pronounced the French way but like you said people would end up pronouncing how its spelt
