I am about to give up and find a new name. We are not sure which way to spell it that people would know how to say it. We go back and forth about it and i just want a name for this little girl so i can write it down. We are now going back and forth between...........
It might be these hormones today but i am just feeling sooooooooo upset about this! LOL Most people either say spell it Aleah or Aliyah but then the Daddy said he thinks it should have the letter A on the end of it. Someone please help me i am going CRAZY
I think it's a beautiful name so don't give up if you love it, but I think the easiest two are the ones you mentioned...Aleah or Aliyah. I'm a teacher and I've seen the MANY ways in which people spell their children's names and it's definitely helpful when you can at least take an educated guess. I know I'll for sure be picking a name that people can pronounce. Good luck.
My thinking is that if you spell it Aleah or Alea people will pronounce it "A-lee". I don't think that the spelling Aliyah will be mispronounced much as there was that singer with the same name a few years ago and in my opinion it's still recognizable. We went through this with the boy's middle name we chose, Cohen. I even did a poll here for it because I was so up in the air about it.
