    Default Honestly...does this sound bogan?

    Ha yes. I'd pretty much crossed it off the list but yes this is a good point.

I have to spell it for everyone and they still get it wrong (people write down what they think it is and pay no attention to me spelling my name). I have to answer to multiple variations of my name - some that sound absolutely nothing like my real name. And of course its on no personalised stuff like bowls/cups/keyrings - that isn't such an issue these days, but it was a big issue for me growing up.

    Not meaning to offend, just letting you know that unique isn't always fantastic.
    Hubby has a very very unusual name (it's Japanese), I have a very common name so we do understand the pros and cons of both. At least Zia is only 3 letters, and I still have to spell my name to people (Jessica), because bogans have confused people by spelling it Jesika etc.

    TBH the things that are making me unsure of Zia are the aunty thing and that it's so close to Mia. I thought the Mia thing would be more of an issue but obviously the aunty thing is more - good to get some other perspectives because I don't know any Italian people IRL and no one IRL has pointed that out (although I did know it).

    I know a girl who spells it Zea, if you didn't want the Italian spelling
    I know its Italian, but never think of Aunty for her.

    Maybe consider Zara or Zoe of you wanted a Z nname but were unsure of Zia?

    Edit: just realised why it's so familiar to me! Ziya is one of the main characters in the tv show NCIS. She's awesome!

    Ziya is Arabic for Splendour, light and glow.

    Cool name choice!! Maybe spell it Ziya instead of Zia if you want the traditional spelling?

    You could go Sia... there is that chick that sings that titanium song with that name and some other singer. So it's probably a fairly familiar name atm and sounds quite like Zia.

    I met a little Zia recently, I think they said it means luminous light? I thought it was pretty. I'm liking z names- like Zara and Zana.
