    More to the point, should I use Eulalia,or Eularia? Always confused, is it a Catalan thing?

    Eulalia is Castillian Spanish
    Eularia is Catalan.

    All the road signs in Ibiza are in written in Catallan. This is to ensure that any tourist who has made the effort to learn a bit of Spanish before they arrive here will realise that they have wasted their time.

    Anybody who wasn't born on the island and brought up speaking Catallan, generally pronounce it in the Castillian way.

    and of then course, there is Ibicenco - no wonder after 20 odd years I still can't make myself understood - just over 4 weeks to the first time this year :)

    a little variation on this if i may - a-oo-lar-leah - the first sound makes all the difference.

    and last summer mcrackers corrected my catalan pronounciation of a-oo-lar-re-ah for eularia to the correct 'a-oo-lar-E'
