I suspect that the name Leia will increase in popularity, particularly in the United States, in the wake of Carrie Fisher's death. Although by itself, I think Leia is quite pretty. It's just that this spelling has become almost synonymous with Star Wars.

I love this name but if I ever named my child Leia, I would dread to think of all the Star Wars comments!

Leia is a cute name, but Star Wars has ruined this name!

It's weird how there are 2 Leia pages on this site.

By the way, Leia is a nice name although it does make the parents look like hardcore Star Wars fans.

I hate this name. But I like the name Leah! If you spell it like this then you are a chav. Simple as.

Haha. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Princess Leia from Star Wars.

Leia, Leja, Laeh, Lia are all the same name. The Leia is a change of the J used in the Polish which Americans would never understand. My grandmother named Leja came from Poland. I am Laeh, same name but American. In German the name is Lea. All these names refer to the wife of Jacob in the Bible in the way Hebrew is pronounced.

I am a genealogist who speaks 5 languages and has worked for more than 25 years in Europe going from one country to another. Over this time I've tracked names extensively.
