    I watched the tv show first so thought it was spelt Aria (ah-ree-a) which is the pronunciation I like. But then a friend mentioned the Sydney restaurant which did slightly put me off!!

    I can't remember if I mentioned it earlier on in the thread.
    Arya was going to be DS1's name, if he had been a girl. My DH is a devout fan of the books. And he told me it was just a name he liked and came up with. I fought tooth and nail to have the spelling changed as Ah-ya just wasn't the pronunciation I liked and preferred Aria, which is how my DH was pronouncing it anyway.
    It wasn't until the tv series came out, that I realized where he had got it from. If I had known Arya was who she was, I may of agreed to using it for DS2 if he had been a girl too. I also would of left the spelling right alone

    Yes her personality in the books makes me want to have it too!! I do prefer the Arya spelling. But I don't want a child so obviously named after a fictional character iykwim?

    Our other choice is a Gaelic name that Australians will struggle to pronounce and spell but we both love it. So perhaps a girl is doomed either way! Fingers crossed for a boy!!

    I love the name Makkede for a girl, from the Tara Moss novels, but even I'm not sure how to pronounce it!

    My first instinct was to say "Mac - ee - dee", but then I also thought "Mac - ay - dee", "Mac - ee - day", or just "Mac - eed"! Lol.

    When I read the books I pronounce it Mac-ay-dee, but who really knows!!! I can only imagine how much it would be mispronounced and mispelt!
