I've seen Lia as a nickname for Athalia.

This is the Romanian form of the name Leah. It is also used as a pet name for every possible name ending in Lia. I also heard it as a pet name for Liana.

I think it's extremely pretty, I've always loved the sound of the name but disliked the spelling Leah, so this is perfect and uncommon as well.

"Lia" could be also a short form of "Liana".

Short and sweet. I love this name, it's nice on a little girl and I think it ages well.

I love this name! I love the sound, but I hate it spelled Lea, or worse, Leah, so Lia is just perfect. I have only ever known one girl whose name was Lia, spelled this way. It is by far the prettiest way to spell this beautiful name.

Also used in the Czech Republic. (I know at least four Lia's.)

I like Lia way better then Leah. Leah looks forced and overrated, Lia is magnificent.
-- italiannames  2/3/2010
I think it is a beautiful name, short and sweet and it works perfectly as a middle name. It's very annoying when people keep spelling it Leah. It drives me round the twist!

I have a cousin with Lia as a name. It suits her. Such a kind lady! It's a great, short name and it doesn't sound strange at all. Lia is my favorite spelling of Leah.
-- ladybugluck  8/27/2010
Though I am positive the majority in this crowd pronounce it as "Lee-Uh"... though is incorrect, if you wish to speak it through an Italian tongue.

LEE-Ah

The "Li" is stressed to "LEE," or otherwise "I" equals "EE," meaning "L" is just a bit of frosting before the emphasis. "A" is always as in "Father." [noted -ed]

Now, I do hope people do not turn this into another "Ava" or the likes... it is too pretty (as a nickname, only, please) to be brought down so low.

Lia in Hawaiian is a name for head lice (ukus). In Samoan it means goddess of the rain forest. My wife (Lia) being from the Pacific islands, much prefers the Samoan meaning over the Hawaiian!

Also Arabic pronunciation, spelled ليا.
-- Hussien  5/28/2014
This is a beautiful nickname, but I don't think it makes a good actual name.
-- kvpp88  10/15/2014
Might use it as a nickname for Lillian!
-- LV51sfan91  6/28/2015
I much prefer the name Lia over Leah. My mum and dad nearly called me Leah and I'm kind of glad they didn't. My mum says that "Lia" looks like a spelling mistake, but I don't really like names ending in the suffix "-ah". Lia is a lovely name.

Also used in Hungary. Pronounced: LI-aw.
-- HerculePoirot  8/24/2016
My name is Julia Thian Dil and my parents call me Lia.
-- Julia Mawi  1/12/2017
My name is Lia. It is NOT a nickname. My name seems very delicate and polite, but honestly, a name doesn't define a personality. As the ratings show, my name seems to be more serious than comedic, it is physically impossible to tell whether the person herself is actually serious or not without meeting them IN PERSON and TALKING TO THEM.
