    It looks like a few random letters smooshed together.

    If you didn't write how to pronounce it, I would have pronounced it as rhyming with Myer, as PP said. Even after I read your pronunciation I had to go back to it again and concentrate on how to say it like Elijah.

    And-

    eeek! If people are reading it like that, that would definitely make the name a no-no for me.

    Default Thoughts on the name...

    I wouldn't have immediately got that myself but now you've said it, it's all I can think of.

    also not a fan.

    ETA i think a softer and nicer version would be Nia (pronounced n-eye-ah). sort of like Noah with an i sound instead of o.

    This. I automatically dropped the J when I read it.

    This thread reminded me of a discussion with my cousin last week, I was telling her about some of the odd spellings I've seen in Australia and I told her about Jorja (Georgia) and she pronounced it 'Hor-ha' because in the States, with such a large Latin American population, we would assume that name was Latin and pronounce the 'J' with a 'ha' sound. Made me laugh when she automatically said it that way😂.

    A name like this isn't normally my style, but I'm very familiar with Nyjah Houston (we're a skateboarding family ), so it's not a new or unusual name to me personally.

    If you're feeling it, I say go with it. The only other spelling option I can come up with is Nijah, but I think Nyjah is a better option.
