I "know" a girl named Rhyah that I talked to today. I'm guessing that it is an alternate spelling of this name.

This is just a really lovely name. I think it's gorgeous, and that it fits well with the "ia" sound names. Most people I know are named and spelled "Riya", but other people spell it "Rhea", "Ria", and "Riyah". The annoying thing about this name is that people pronounce it "rye-ya" instead of just Riya (rhymes with Mia).

'Riya' or 'Reeya' is a beautiful girl, calm, modest and as the name's meaning in Sanskrit she is really a very good singer!

Said as both Ree-uh & Ry-uh. Personally, I much prefer Ry-uh. Not only does it sound better, Ree-uh will just make people think of Diarrhea. Awful!

The spelling of Rhea wouldn't be used much often for obvious reasons.

In India Riya is only ever pronounced as Ree-ah, never as Rye-ah.
