Turquoisecoast are you Egyptian by any chance. My husband is and his picked all of those names!
Manu - ( either pronounced Man-ew or Marn-u) - as in the Maori name not the French Chef name. Common in NZ not in Oz.
Aliya ( Al - lee - ah) heaps of spellings.
For inspiration on unusual names look for names from other countries. Manu is a common Maori/Islander name but also used in India. Is short for Emanuel in French also. I have only ever met one - my DS2 and it's his Maori Dad's middle name.
The other three are Arabic - some of girls names in Arabic are just beautiful.

what are people's thoughts on ace?
for a boy?
I'm a bit stuck on it and nothing else is forthcoming.
have had a lot of negative feedback about it. dh seems on the fence. initially hated it but it's crept back onto his list.
I just think it's quite cute. will depend on what bub looks like once he's born of course but so far it's topping my list.
also don't mind:
there's others but I'm not 100% on them
Ace is super cute for a little boy but I'm not so sure for an adult. I always try to picture my child as an adult - in a suit, or uniform and introducing themselves. I think as adult people would probably think it was a nickname rather than a name - if that makes sense?
I love the other three though 😊
I think it's adorable for a little boy but you'd start to run into issues maybe at the uni grad job interview level 😂
unless suddenly it became a more popular name and there were more aces around. even so, I can't imagine a lawyer or accountant called ace 😂😂
why is this so bloody hard!!!!!
