For native English speakers this name can be difficult to pronounce; most people will get it completely wrong. In my family it is alternately pronounced 'al-ya', 'a-li-a', or 'a-li-ya'. Unfortunately many people who read the name will get it wrong (I've been referred to as ala and many other very obviously incorrect pronunciations.), and many will simply use a common English name instead (being referred to as Alice is quite offensive).

Alya seems like a pretty name. I like it pronounced Al-ya or Al-i-ya.

A friend of mine (she's from Syria) is named Alyah and she pronounces her name AL-e-uh. I think her name is very pretty.
