You're undoubtedly correct, as Ms _Leeza_ Gibbons provided, via phonetic
spelling and pronunciation, what might have been an alternative latter
with the same former.

What does DARE say about "Alicia"?  (Probably nothing, but are there
any similar common nouns?)  And surely there can be only one
pronunciation for "Liza" since Ms. Minnelli came out.
