People always spell my name wrong or pronounce it Leia, like in star wars. But I like it and lots of people have told me how pretty they think it is.

1/14/2023 8:20:24 PM

My name is Leah and I pronounce it Lee-a. I'm 13. I like the way It'sounds and I don't think it very plain just short and I like that about it. I have only met a couple people with this name. I like that it not super common but not weird either. My middle name is also Marie. I am happy with it and wouldn't want it to be any thing else.

1/14/2023 1:34:50 PM

1/2/2023 12:55:56 AM

many people mispronounce it as "Lee" or "Lay-ah". My name is Leah and I pronounce it as "Lee-ah". I know of some people named Leah who do pronounce it as the'starwars Princess (as "Lay-ah").

12/16/2022 7:31:46 PM

12/15/2022 12:02:02 AM

My first name is Leah and my middle name is Katherine and I like it now as an adult but didn't when I was younger. I don't like the meaning but I like my name. I was born in 1992 and I went through high school with 2 other Leah's and I'meet one every now and then but I like that It's still fairly unique. Some people pronounce it Lee which I'm not a fan on and correct them. My dad is the only person who can call me Lee and get away with it haha. Some of my friends call me leelee which is fine.

12/14/2022 1:06:38 AM

12/10/2022 3:56:52 AM

My name is Leah and I'mean I never really thought much of the title. I was the only one in my family who was named by my dad. He wanted it to be From the bible and my mom was all out of names after her fith child. My mom didn't like it, thought it was ugly and decided that because the name meant weary that it was no good for one of her daughters. I think shes become grown to it but I still dont know if she even likes my name. I like my name. it may not be what my mom wants but at least now i have a way to know that my dad os even real (they were seperated and even'though i still see him sometimes its like I'mever really had a dad. I dont really remember him-i was 4) my name might not be perfect but i like it and thats all that matters

12/9/2022 5:39:42 PM

Adriana, I'd pronounce Aellea like "AY-lee-ah" which kinda sounds like alien. I like Leah. If I ever have kids, I'd like to call them Leah May-Ella (not sure about May-Ella) and Victoria Rose-Elle (not sure about Rose-Elle either. Maybe Ette?)

12/8/2022 9:58:16 PM

Yes, people often spell my name without the'second i as well, I have found that a lot of people want to sound out the whole end saying it like it is spelled like "shia" instead of "sha", incorporating the'second i when it is read not heard.

12/4/2022 8:03:24 AM

10/16/2022 11:44:02 AM

My name is Leah (NOT Leia!). I like my name but hate when othe's mispronounce/misspell it. Also, I refuse to watch any of the'star Wars movies because of the confusion with Princess Leia (ha ha). I have only encountered a few othe's with the'same name, but when I first introduce myself, often people compliment me on how pretty "Leah" is.

10/16/2022 1:26:52 AM

its so funny because my name is leah *spelled* LEIGH which sucks! 6 out of 10 people say my name the right way but to others i'm leigh young! as a kid i always wanted to change the spelling to LIYA! but i grew to love it.

10/11/2022 3:53:32 AM

My daughter was born in 2021 and I named her Leah (lee-ah). I thought the name was so cute simple and classic. Her middle name is Marie which is a family name.. looks like Leah Marie is pretty common though.. I still think its a beautiful name :)

10/8/2022 10:38:56 AM

Our number 2 daughter is Leah. The only other time I'd heard the name was my mother's aunt and I thought it unusual and very pretty. Leah was one of a kind for years and not too happy when she saw the name becoming more popular.She was 11 before her name showed up on personalized stuff in the stores. She is 34 now and there are lots more Leahs around. Her middle name is Kathleen after my mother.

10/8/2022 6:14:26 AM

I got alot of guff in elementary school for being "Leah". My mom says she name me after a soap star actress in the early '70's. She'said It'sounds like the wind through the trees. A deep breath or intentional thought "Leeaahhh" (Leah) i've grown to love the'song/poetry of my name.

9/25/2022 2:39:12 PM

I spell my dd's name Leigha which didn't even show up. I think It's so pretty spelled this way

8/8/2022 3:07:30 AM

At the time I had my second daughter, my oldest daughter was 16. I wanted there to be a special bond between the two, even though there was so many years between them. I made my oldest daughter,along with my husband, one of my birthing coaches, so she could witness her little sister come into the world. I also named my baby girl after her. My oldest daughter's name is Taylor Leigh (pronunced Lee), and my baby girl was name Leah Shea. I feel that both of my girls have very strong and beautiful names.

7/21/2022 4:09:36 AM

My name is Leah Marie and I'm 20 years old. I absolutely love it, though I went through a phase in middle school where I wanted to change it. I have only known 4 other girls named Leah and 1 Leigha. Infact, I didn't know anyone with my name until high school. People always compliment my name, which I love. I don't like how it regularly gets pronounced Lee. As if people don't know what sounds letters make. My parents chose it out of the bible and liked it because it wasn't common but still very pretty. I have gotten plenty of star wars comments, a lot of "See ya, Leah"s, and a male teacher in 7th grade started singing "Ah, Leah" by Donnie Iris the first time he met me, in front of the class. Awkward. Still, It's a fun conversation starter, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

7/13/2022 2:59:24 PM

Well I am 9 and I am called Leah but when I was born my dad only knew 1 person called Leah and then I was called Leah everyone gets called it ?

7/9/2022 11:09:00 PM

I like the name Leah, but I think it makes a better middle name, because It's plain. Still a very cute name! Would make a good first name paired with another name too, maybe like Leah Marie. My friend is named Leah

7/8/2022 11:21:36 PM

my names lucy i think mines a pretty name too but i really wish i was called leah

7/1/2022 1:02:24 AM

My name is Leah, and I used to not like it, but now that I am older, I love it. Everyone in my family calls me Leigh or Le, however you want to spell it. I was always the only Leah growing up in school. I think It's a timeless name and glad I have it.

6/29/2022 6:02:06 AM

My best friend is named Leah. I love the name but it doesnt fit her that well. It is simple, biblical,classic, and easy to pronounce!

4/24/2022 1:35:42 AM

People always complement me on my name. thay say how unique and beautiful it is. my parents surely did a great job!

4/15/2022 12:38:06 PM

My name is Leah and people always pronounce it Lee. I love my name but that drives me crazy (I think Lee is an ugly name)! Adding an 'H' at the end clearly makes it Lee-ah, even without the 'H' It's clearly Lee-ah and yet at least 70% of people who read my name'say Lee.

4/1/2022 12:49:48 PM

People pronounce it "Lee" all the time, but I think its a pretty name and have had many compliments.

3/19/2022 5:29:42 AM

My name is Rhea I have a friend that is Leah They are like the'same exsept I have a R at the'starting of my name'she has a L.

3/14/2022 8:22:30 AM

I love the name Leah. One of my favourite books (Twilight) has a girl called Leah in it and she is a great character. In general it is pronounced "Lee-ah" but the bible says otherwise. I am thinking of naming my daughter Leah, if i have one. It is a very pretty name.

2/7/2022 3:43:30 PM

People spell and mispronounce my name ALL the time and I don't understand it because It's so simple. Anyway, I love my name! You don't hear it much and I think It's pretty.

1/31/2022 5:11:42 PM

Hello to other Leahs as well! I also have trouble with misspellings and mispronouncing, but it almost makes it better because It's nice to see someone spell or pronounce it right the first time and if someone cares enough, they'll work to get it right. Sometimes I dislike it, but most of the time I like it because It's so feminine, simple and sweet, plus not many people around my area seem to be named Leah.

1/25/2022 7:22:12 PM

My name is Leah, I'm twenty years old and I absolutely, purely hate it! I didn't mind it as much as a kid but when I got into my teens, mostly my late teens, it just sounded so childish. When I complained about when my mother named me that name'she'said, "It was unique at the time! If you hate It'so much, change it love." I would love to change it but when I ask people to what, they say, "Nothing. Your name'suits you.."

12/28/2021 1:21:18 PM

of course i give it a thumbs up its my name and its beautiful!

12/7/2021 9:31:48 AM

I have always liked it(it is my name), but it is annoying to be called "Lee" which is my uncle's name.

11/25/2021 7:28:30 AM

People never know how to spell my name and they pronounce it "Leigh." It'seems like it would be clear in this spelling. Le-ah but its not I guess. Overall everyone thinks its a very cool name and one that I wouldn't trade! I also get the'star wars reference but like it as well.

10/16/2021 7:38:24 AM

People call me Leigha, Lea, Leia, Lee, and I get called an oxymoron cause it means weary and I barely sleep.

10/12/2021 10:18:36 AM

Leah is pretty. WAY WAY better than those other Biblical names like Rebecca. BORING REBECCA. I do wonder if the name as noted by othe's would cause confusion with spelling and pronounciation.

9/12/2021 1:03:18 AM

My name is Leah and I like my name, it means "weary", but Leah was the ancestor of Jesus! a lot of people take to calling me "Princess Leah." It'shows on the chart that it was reeally popular in the 80's, but i've still only ever known a handful of people with the name. Amazingly, It'seems to be very difficult to pronounce and spell. i've been called : Lia, Lea, Lee, and I tell people "It's been around for thousands of years y'know." I think It's really pretty and I'm glad It's mine:-)

8/31/2021 9:52:30 PM

My name is Leah. I like my name for the most part but I hate it when people spell it wrong. I'mean i could name over a thousand different ways that people spell it. It gets annoying when you have to spell it out for everyone cause they can't figure out how. I also absoloutely hate it when people call me Leah like princess leah from star wars. I'mean hello do you see any cinna-buns sticking out from the'side of my head? I love the meaning of my name. The wife of Jacob (well one of the two). And mother of the'six tribes of the chosen. The other two meanings of Leah I don't really like. They are weary and....COW! I'mean do I look like a cow! Do I walk on four legs like a cow! Do I eat my lawn for breakfast? Do I have freakin spots on my back. whatever. I like my name i just wish people would learn to spell.

8/20/2021 9:26:24 PM

My name is Leah and I am 35 years old. I hated the name when I was a kid but now I really like it -- I think It's classy.

8/20/2021 2:13:30 AM

HI'my name is Leah, i go to a french school so people call my Lay-Ah, i love it! My nickname at school is Princess Lay-ah from Star-wars.i know 3 other Leah`s.

8/12/2021 1:58:12 PM

My names spelt Leah but people always pronounce it as lee

7/12/2021 2:04:30 PM

My daughter, born 12/8/09 is named Leah Shea. I love the name, I hope she likes it when she's a "big girl"

7/7/2021 5:03:36 AM

People often say incorrectly. i've gotten "Lee" and once someone even said "Leech." And the jokes about Star Wars and the Roy Orbison song are getting a little old. In addition, some people wonder if It's pronounced "Lee-uh" or "Lay-uh." I don't have a preference, really, so my friends choose the pronunciation they like.
