    Sonja, Kaja (or Kaija), and Maja are all legitimate names. The others are just too kree8tyve looking for my taste.

    Check out Finnish names, there are lots of j-as-y sounding ones there.

    I like Kaja, Sonja, and Maja, also Freja and Katja, but Jija, Talija, and Dahlija are definitely over the top...

    I prefer Maja, Kaja and Sonja, it's the normal thing in scandinavia and Russia.

    J is pronounced like the English Y in many languages, including most Germanic and Slavic languages. Unlike littlemrsb, I don't think it matters if any of these languages are among the languages of your heritage - there are enough such languages that most Anglophones should be fairly used to names spelled with J. 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.
