My eldest daughter is named Leia which IS pronounced "Lay Ah" I love her name because I loved the Hawaiian meaning and Star Wars but you know what sometimes It's pronounced the wrong way is all

I gave my Daughter this name Leia pronounced the way It'should be "lay-uh" this is actually how you would pronounce it in Hebrew. you can also pronounce the'spelling of Leah as "lay-uh" I am not sure where people got the confusion of pronouncing it "Lee ah" but I guess if you say it a certain way when you are reading the Hebrew it could sound like either pronunciation. I hope my Leia makes sure people pronounce her name correctly. When ever I tell people her name I usually get oh Princess Leia so far It'seems to have worked out. I did not however name her for the'star wars character even'thought I love star wars. For some reason I just prefer names with i.... I guess so she can heart the i when she gets holder lol

I named my daughter Leia and some pronounce it as Lay-ah and majority pronounce it Lee-ah... she always gets compliments on her name and it is very uncommon. I love the name It's unique that's why I choose it
