I saw this on a top 100 name list. I’m not sure how it’s pronounced. My guess would be A Lay a. My personal opinion is it sounds made up and will constantly get mispronounced.
Who would want to be associated with family vloggers? Not me.

It was an okay name before it got so common, now it's just a fad-name associated with social media.

It also sounds like "a liar" in many many accents. And no, the original pronunciation is not ah-LAY-a (which, by the way, sounds like "a layer" but ah-lie-ah, it's a Basque name and that's what it sounds like originally, you can google it).

The meaning is nice, though.
It doesn't sound like a name.
Pretty, and it reminds me of the 2nd daughter of the Ace Family, which isn't a bad thing.
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.
Family youtubers 'The Ace Family' named their second daughter Alaïa Marie, who commonly is nicknamed 'Laï Laï'. Her older sister is named Elle Lively, and her younger brother is named Steel.
Pretty. I love the meaning.
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.
Teasing possibility in English-speaking countries: "A liar."
German F1 driver Nico Rosberg named her daughter Alaïa.
A famous bearer of this name as a surname is Azzedine Alaïa, a Tunisian fashion designer. His fashion brand is also called Alaïa.
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).
This is the name of actor Stephan Baldwin's daughter.
Alaia means: Happy, Joyful (the one that's happy) in Basque.
The meaning of joy in Basque would be: Alaitasuna, not Alaia.
