Meh. It’s decent. I still prefer Aaliyah for some reason. This isn’t pronounced like Aaliyah though. Alya is cooler.
The nickname Ali is absolutely adorable!
Alia is YouTuber SSSniperWolf's real name!
Cute nickname for something more formal like Aliana.
Way, way better than Aaliyah. Prettier! Alia Shelesh is a YouTuber SSSniperWolf.
It's nice.
Alia is an Arabic name that means Noble and Sublime. It is a name used for females, and it was ranked as #659 in the US.
My daughter's name is Alia Renée, and I love it so much! I think it is spelt beautifully, and I love how short, simple and pretty the spelling is.
Very beautiful.
This was the name of Osama Bin Laden’s mother.
Easier to spell than Aaliyah.
I love this name, and I have seen it spelled A'lia.
Alia is a very beautiful, elegant, and gentle soft name! It will definitely age well on a girl!
This spelling is very elegant and smooth, I much prefer it to Aaliyah. Aaliyah is becoming quite common so I'm happy there is this alternative - even though they have the same pronunciation I just feel like this one is a bit different.
I like this name a lot! It's more feminine than Ali, and sleeker than Aaliyah. It manages to sound both ancient and modern at the same time.
My daughter's name is Alia Sage.
I think that this is a beautiful name, especially since I know an awesome person who bears this name, and it sounds prettier than the name "Ala" which bears a similar meaning.
Alia Bhatt is a British film actress and singer who works in Bollywood. Born into the Bhatt family, she is the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan. After making her acting debut as a child artist in the 1999 thriller Sangharsh, Bhatt played her first leading role in Karan Johar's romantic drama Student of the Year, which earned her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
This spelling is less confusing then Aaliyah.
I would pronounce it ALLY-ah, to rhyme with valley, because in my opinion if you want to call your child a-LEE-yah, Aaliyah is a prettier name.
This is my 6 year old cousin's name, and she's so adorable! I love this name. She pronounces it Ah-lee-ah. It's usually spelled Aaliyah, but she spells it differently. :) "ALIA"
Alia is also used as a masculine name.
I absolutely love this name. I also like the spelling Aliyah, but Alia is really my favorite. It reminds me of a sweet little girl, probably because of six-year-old Alia in the book series The Shadow Children, written by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
I've always assumed that Alia in the Dune books had the Latin rather than the Semitic name: is anyone aware of evidence that her name was in fact a form of Aliyah etc and not a Latin word meaning: Other, or: Different?

In view of the fact that the women's college, Bene Gesserit, with its very high standards has a name meaning "She Will Have Done Well", Frank Herbert seemed to enjoy using Latin names.
Concerning Alia Atreides, I presume the Semitic meaning was intended as Alia was the "Womb of Heaven". Lofty and Heaven seem to go together naturally.
Alia means other/other/else in Latin.
Actor Stephen Baldwin has a daughter named Alia.
Alia is the younger sister of Paul Atreides, better know as Muad'dib, from Frank Herbert's Dune books. She was awakened to consciousness in the womb, "pre-born", considered an abomination by the Bene Gesserit.
Pronounced Ah-leah.
Alia Shawkat is an American actress who has starred in television programs such as 'Arrested Development' and 'State of Grace'.
This is a pretty, feminine, not-overused name.
Queen Alia of Jordan (1948-77) was a bearer of this name.
ALIA is derived from the name AALIYAH. It is more commonly used in Egypt. The meaning is similar to that of AALIYAH meaning "Highest, Most Exhalted" or "to ascend".
Pronounced: uh-lee-uh or ah-lee-uh
Impression: Sheds new light on any dilemma, quietly brave and fiercely loyal, applauds the efforts of others, dramatic in her ways, ponders great issues and finds solutions, a fearless adversary, does not hesitate to get involved, she enhances her looks with a smile.
Pronounced: a-lee-u
