I've always pronounced it as Alice and I figured that Lois was just

>Raye asks a name pronunciation question. I have found that the only person who really knows is the name holder. Usually a person with a name with 2 (or more) legitimate pronunciations will respond to any of them the first time you talk to them and only correct you if it really matters.
