I dislike it. I think it sounds too much like "a liar" with a British accent.

Also not sure how to pronounce it, but I think the meaning is lovely.

I'm not sure how to pronounce this? Assume it is A lay a which I'm not a fan of. Alia is pretty. Alaia really isn't.

I added this name to our girl list, but ended up disliking it after hearing all of the negative comments from family and friends. I heard "like princess Leia"? We're also told kids will tease her by saying things like "Lay ya". Needless to say, I'm no longer a fan.

Not a fan at all- sounds trashy.

My name's Alaia and you're all pronouncing it wrong. It isn't pronounced A-liar it's pronounced A-lei-a. My biggest pet peeve is people saying my name like that so if you're really doing your friend a favor pronounce it correctly. I like my name and don't want anyone butchering it more then they have to.

Alaia is such a beautiful name! I love it. Alaia sounds literally joyful and I think it ought to be used more often. It's a gorgeous and vibrant name. I like names of that sound - like Amaia, Maia, Gaia.

Pronounced ah-LIE-uh.

You could pronounce this any way you want and I'd still love it, it's so pretty and because of its many pronunciations it would still sound pretty if people got it wrong, so I don't think anyone could complain if this was their name and it was forever being said wrongly.

Pronounced uh-li-yah (more or less).

Alaia means: Happy, Joyful (the one that's happy) in Basque.
The meaning of joy in Basque would be: Alaitasuna, not Alaia.
