I think this is a beautiful name. Out of all the Arabic names, I think I like this one best!

Pronounced "zy-dah".

@Emilie007 No, it's not pronounced "zy-dah"- it's ZAY-də. I know this because I can read Arabic.

I prefer it pronounced Zay-da.

Although this is a beautiful name, it is a bit harsh and odd.
It reminds me of black people (probably because of how it sounds close to Jada and Daija) and dogs. (My grandma, for years, had a big, vicious dog by the name of Zaida.

I love this name! I might consider using this. I would use the pronunciation zay-da.

The name Zaida was given to 91 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

I would pronounce this name as zay-da. It sounds just like the word for "more" which makes sense coming from "to increase." I would use this name for a second daughter, perhaps for a twin when we expected only one baby. ;) I wonder if this name will get more popular thanks to all the "ay" sounds we hear lately (Aiden, Jayden, etc.).

This is my name, and it's OFTEN mispronounced as Zay-dah. Zy-dah (long I sound) is how my name is pronounced. Unique, often mispronounced, but wouldn't change it for the world. Had you asked me 30 years ago, I might have answered differently. ;)

Sounds like an African-American name.
