I love it
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 think it is a lovely name.
Also a Chinese name but spelt Xia in English, I have a friend named this and love 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?
Not bogan but not a fan!
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.
