im goin to name my daughter Aa'Liyah i love this name'so much and cant wait to call out to her, im gonna call her liyah for short ^-^ LOVE THIS NAME!

05/10/2023 03:18:14

I LOVE this name because it is my name. I was born in the 70's and I only knew one other girl with the'same name. My parents researched the name because it was not very popular in the United Stated at the time. I spell it AALIYAH and pronounce it R-LE-YAH. My parents chose the Turkish pronunciation, so it is already Europeanized. In Arabic, "AA" makes an "R" sound because there is no "uh" sound in Arabic. The Arabic pronunciation is AL-LE-YAH. I feel empowered knowing that my name means ıthe female version of Allahı (not goddess).

05/06/2023 10:15:20

There was a Hawaiian princess named alia. The name in Hawaiian means great joy. I once met a Hawaiian boy with the name Alia, so I guess it can be unisex there. Anyway, my name is Aleah and I love it. I always have. And it has only been the last few years that I have heard of anyone else having it.

04/04/2023 19:26:04

yes my name is abigail actually when I was little almost no one was named abigail and every time I told someone my name they would say how pretty the name was. my mom said she named me abigail because it wasn't in the most popular baby names at that time but now abigail is a really popular name and everyone started naming their kids that after i was born so we say my mom brought the trend back

Pavement cycling fginhters pedestriansPavements are for pedestrians. And people using thepavement have the right to feel safe and protected fromtraf?c, including bicycles.You may feel that you are doing no harm by cycling onthe pavement. And you may feel con?dent that you willnot injure or hurt anyone.But pedestrians don't share your con?dence. Becausewhile you know where you and your bike are going,they do not, and may beli've they are in danger.It's not easy for pedestrians to predict your exact route.They could be worried about a number of things:• Is the cyclist headed for the'same area of pavementas me?• Has the cyclist seen me?• Will the cyclist slow down as they get closer?• Will the cyclist be skilled enough to avoid me if theydon't slow down?Cycling on the pavement can be even more threateningto people with poor balance. Many of these people areolder or disabled and have a constant fear of falling.Cycling on the pavement simply adds to this fear.There is an epidemic of cyclists on the pavements in Weybridge.

Your all going on about how no one pronounces it right! How is it pronounced?

03/17/2023 13:32:24

i love this name i had to pick something fast for my daughter because i didnt know i was having her so i looked on the net and seen this name aaliyah and fell in love with it. but when i frist seen it the name was hebrew than i meet some people who where muslims and told me that its a muslim name and it had a hole differnt meaning in its name. but really i dont care where its from or what it means i really love this name and at the time i didnt know the singer aaliyah i just loved this name all the way so it should matter if u like it than use it no one asks the meaning or where it came from... thats what i think any ways

03/16/2023 22:15:28

I called my baby girl born on the 19th march 09 Aaliyah Kusuma. I love the name.

03/13/2023 22:50:34

My name is Aaliyah. I was Aaliyah before they called the late singer Aaliyah. Many people dont realize her real name wasnt Aaliyah but was Aeliyatt Dana Haughton. Aaliyah, Aeliyatt and Aliyah are of arabic origin and Aleah is of hebrew origin. There is a late princess named Aaliyah and a verse from a holy book with this name in it. People tend to mispronouce my name because the'singer Aaliyah misspronounced it, but the 'a' is actually not pronounced with an 'uh' but more of a throaty short 'a' sound as in 'apple'. Its a beautiful name that means sublime, lofty, up high (status). Most Aaliyahs are graceful,pretty and kind. Not to be confused with Aliyah/Aliyyah which is a different name which is the female version of Ali and pronounced the'same as Ali but with ofcourse a different ending. *Please keep in mind when you pronounce a name from different origins, mispronouncing it can change the meaning tremendously, where a name can mean truthful,it can be mispronounced to mean ugly for example. Research is always a good option, for children live up to their names. Just a thought!. Shot out to all my Aaliyah's in the world!

02/28/2023 11:33:54

My baby girls name is Aaliyah, pronounced A-Lee-YA. Some people get muddled up with how its said, and pronunce it with an E at the beginning (Ell-I-ya) but every1 comments on how unusal and beautiful the name is. I love it.

02/05/2023 23:06:12

My name is pronounced the'same but It's spelled Alliah. I like that way but people get confused.

01/23/2023 16:31:40

I love that name. Im pregnant of a girl and I really have it in mind. I dont really care about its origin but as long as it has a positive meaning Im cool with it. Besides I love the late singer Aaliyah, she was talented and beautiful. I'm sure my daughter will look much like her. My husband is nigerian and we want to give her Osariemen as her middle name, it means Gods gift. Aaliyah Osariemen... It sounds good

01/15/2023 02:48:20

Actually there is the AA in arabic makes the hard A sound, there is definately the 'uh' sound in arabic. Secondly, Aliah is the female version of the name Ali. It means noble or highly exhaulted.

12/20/2022 06:06:44

10/12/2022 18:41:08

the correct way to pronounce it is: /hee-men'-ah/ In Spanish, X has 3 different sounds: /h/, /sh/ and /ks/. In this case, it takes the pronunciation of /h/. Of course... if you are a Spanish speaking person, this phonetics will not sound exactly right, but for English speakers, this is the closest we can get. It is a beautiful name and It's nice to make our best effor to pronounce it properly. By the way, I'll name my baby girl: XIMENA

10/12/2022 05:45:16

My name is Aaliyah. All my life I have lived with mispronounciation after mispronounciation. I hate it. From ?a-liar? to ?ay-lee? to ?ar-liar? to even ?a-layer?. And not to mention the'spelling!! I have never met anyone who hasn't asked me to spell out my name as they write it. Teache's just give up and spell whatever. Besides, making a four year old suffer through writing out A-a-l-i-y-a-h is just cruel. i've gone by Leah for twelve years because I refuse to have someone say ?a-liar? as they read my name tag and have all my colleagues laugh.
