My name is Alia and It's true a lot of people ask how to pronounce it, but I don't mind that. I'm 30 so I grew up when Jennifer's and Heather's and Crystal's were popular. However I grew to love my name and be thankful my parents were more inter'sting and creative. I get many, many compliments on it. It's different, but not too awkward and It's feminine without being prissy.
Im 18, I love my name, it is beautiful and unique, some mispronounce, by saying Ayla but it never annoy me. Still love it.
Btw it means the highness and honor.
In arabic it is usualy used to say "Alia in knowledge", and it means the most and highst knowledge you can reach :)
