Both are very pretty! I would worry that Selya would be mispronounced a lot though. Are you stuck on that spelling?[/b]
I'm not stuck on spelling at all... open for suggestions
Didnt even think about people mispronouncing it, until you asked, now I see that it could be pronounced as " silly-ya"... hehe... what would you suggest for different spelling?
To get that pronunciation of Selya you could try Seleah or Saleah. But instead of that maybe Sylvia or Celia? They sound pretty close but are well-known, so they would be less likely to be mispronounced. There's also Sela, which is less well-known but pretty straightforward as far as spelling and pronunciation go.
Selina I would spell Selena instead. The singer Selena is still very well-known, especially since a lot of people have seen the movie about her life. You'd probably get the E misspelling a lot anyway because people are familiar with her name, and it's just as beautiful.
I think Selena is very pretty. I'd love to meet a little girl named Selena.
Hi and welcome to the baby names boards! I also thought Selya was pronounced Sell-ya. My favorite S name is Selah. Pronounced Say-Lah. I love that name! It means to pause and reflect. I do like the way you pronounce Selya, but I would definitely recommend changing the spelling. Selina, for some reason, does not sound that uncommon to me.
