I really love this name. It's pretty exotic to American ears, which I like. It makes it unique. If I had twin girls, I'd name them Ayaka and Amaya.

This name sounds very exotic and delicate (at least to American ears). It's very pretty. I like it a lot. The flowery meaning doesn't detract either.

Ayaka is a very popular name these days. It can be divided into two elements, 'Aya' (colourful) and 'Ka' (fregrance), and 'Ka' can be replaced by other naming elements such as 'Mi'(beauty), 'Ko'(child), and so on to make other names 'Ayami', 'Ayako'. I personally love that names.

See the comments on "Aya" for more possibilities for meanings. As for the "ka" part, it could be "beautiful" or "song" or "fragrance".

If it was pronounced Ayaku, it would be spelled that way. Japanese is very phonetic and it's said the way it's spelled, consistently (like Spanish).

Also, the Japanese language doesn't have the syllable "ye", so they'd have to do some fancy work with the characters/syllabary and it would be spelled differently (Aieka) because the "ye" sound when they're pulling it from other langauges (since it doesn't normally come up in Japanese words) is written "ie".
