My name is (zay-da) it’s mispronoucened all the time it’s pronounced either (zy-dah) when trying to add the I my name is spelled Zaida and the I is always tricky to people, especially to my teacher she calls me zy-dah 24/7 on a regular daily basis at school. It’s a complicated yet interesting name.

That is my daughters name. We pronounce it ZAY-da. She is a feisty yet empathetic child. Very strong-willed. She is also very “lucky” as for the meaning of her name. She was a miracle against all odds... though she was a surprise. I did not know the meaning of her name when she was named, but “lucky” is indeed fitting.

Sounds like an African-American name.

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. ;)

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.).

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

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

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

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