This is my daughters name. I named her Kaya because of It's Hopi Indian origin meaning "Younger elder'sister, wise child." It is a perfect fit for her and her personality. People (especially teache's)are constantly pronouncing it Kay-Yuh instead of Kai-Yuh and that tends to get very unnerving at times...Other than that, I know her name was destined to be Kaya...she told me so from my womb! *wink*

Though popular a century ago, I think the TV show 'The Honeymooners' with Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows as Ralph and Alice Kramden and Art Carney and Joyce Randolph as Ed and Trixie Norton may have had something to do with the name Ralph's decrease in popularity in recent times. It didn't, however, stop the parents of BrIt'sh actor Ralph Fiennes naming their own son Ralph in 1974. Though Fiennes pronounces his name in the old-fashioned BrIt'sh way as 'Rafe' (as also shown in the UK composer Ralph Vaughan WillI'ms), I think that most people of today pronounce it as written.
