Sonja is my favourite, and I like Freja. Maja and Kaja are two names I actually prefer with a J than with a Y, as they are less trendy that way. I am not a fan of Jija, though.
    Thankyou! I'm really starting to like the Maja version thanks for your feedback! x

    There's also Marija, my name, Sofija and Emilija. Which are all used in Eastern European countries, but i have a lot of Lithuanian relatives with J as Y names. My sister is Anastazija, which is a family name. A few others I can't think of.

    I get a tonne of trouble with spelling and pronunciation here in the UK, and people think I'm using it to be yoo-neek.
