I like this name, a lot. I like it mostly as a nickname for Natalie or Natalia, both of which I love. I heard it on the message board!

Simply love this name. I've never heard Nia was a "real" name, I thought it was something I made once. I use it a lot on the internet. If I should change my name, my new name would be Nia.

Nia is such a beautiful name for a girl. One she could easily grow up with. Some pronounce it KNEE-a but I pronounce it NYE-a.

Nia is such a beautiful elegant name for a girl. I wish it were my name.

The name Nia sounds perfect to me. But I wouldn't call my daugher that way. That's only because I used to call myself Niamh (although that's not my name) and my friends call me Nia, because that's easier for them to pronounce.

Pronounced KNEE-ah. Not NYE-ah.

In the Welsh language, 'i' is pronounced like the English 'e' (While the Welsh 'e' is pronounced 'eh'). Therefore, an 'i' in a Welsh name, should also be pronounced 'e'.

This comes from someone who speaks Welsh as a first language.

Nia should be pronounced "NEE-ah", not "NYE-a". "NYE-a" is the pronunciation of a completly different name spelt Naya that has some other meaning.

Much prefer to say it as Nye-uh (nigh-uh)

Knee-uh is just stupid, to say the least.

My name, and it IS pronounced Nee-a. I speak Welsh and know two other Nias, have heard of many (it's popular in Welsh mythology, see Nia Ben Aur), and have a friend whose middle name is that. It's really popular where I live! There are other names pronounced Nye-a, but this is not one of them.
THIS name, however, is pronounced Nye-a:

Can also be said as Nigh-uh (Nigh rhymes with high) I strongly feel that that pronunciation is much, much better than "Nee-uh"
Mia: That name can be said both ways and the same goes for Nia.
