Pronounced pree-yuh.

I have a friend named Priya. It's a pretty name, but people tend to mispronounce it a lot. The most popular butchering being "pry-uh".

Judging from my school, Priya must be a very common name in India.

I have a good friend named Priya. It's a very pretty name, but no one ever seems to know how to pronounce it. We (her friends and I) tell people that it rhymes with "chia", as in "chia pet".

My favourite Indian name - a good choice in an English-speaking country too, it just seems to make more sense to an English ear than some other ones. Sounds quite cosmopolitan really! The meaning is lovely too - sweet.

I love this name. I feel it is unfortunate that the pronunciation will probably remind a lot of people of Prius.
