    It's spelled "suite," but is pronounced "sweet." The term can be used for a hotel suite (which usually includes at least one bedroom and bath and a separate living room or conference room). It's also used sometimes to refer to a grouping of furniture.

    A suit (pronounced "sute" like the "oo" sound in "boo") is at least two pieces of clothing meant to be worn together, usually a jacket and either pants or a skirt.

    I think a lot of people will pronounce it MY-la if it spelled that way. But it is a very pretty name.
