    It's silent

    I actually didn't think aleeia was TOO out there. like I can't really think how else you'd spell it and because I don't perceive it to be a butchering of a more traditional spelling, it doesn't stand out as being overly you-neek to me. I think if it was spelled aleea it would look weird, almost needs the i in there to break it up visually. and I had no issue pronouncing it, first time I read the name I knew how to pronounce. it's unusual but I wouldn't class it as you-neek

    Ive seen it spelt several ways. A friends daughter is Aleah and another friends daughter is Aaliyah. All said the same way. Aaliyah was the name of a singer/actress years ago and probably the most common way I have seen the name spelt.

    My niece's name is spelled Alia. I have another friend who's daughter has same name. I think that is the more common spelling. It's actually a pretty common name up here! 😊

    oh of course, I didn't even think of the singer!! and now that I think of it, I went to high school with an Alia but it was pronounced ahh-leah (like emphasis on the ahhh instead of the lee-yah).

    agreed. it's actually a pretty name, just horribly tainted by recent events. the poor little girl.
