I think Arya is beautiful. You should be picking a name for YOU. If you like it, use it! You're the one who will be with her the most..don't settle for a name just because you're family and friends like it!
Best of luck to youXxAll the best,

After giving birth to a Sadiya and a Wendy, me and my husband realized that, like most people say, wait until the baby is born before telling people the name. I got so many negative comments on the girls names that I was on the verge of looking for new names.
But I think that if you love a name enough, you shouldn't be bothered by what other people say. Arya is a really cute name, don't be afraid to use it because of what people say or think.~ Sadiya Hope & Wendy Monroe ~ 10/18/08 ~

Thank you so much for all your good answers! We aren't telling anyone the final name before after the birth - before that we'll just throw in some random names and say we're considering those. We didn't tell anyone the final name with our second son either!
Sometimes i just feel people are downright rude about others name choices - I don't particularly like the names of my nieces and nephews, would never dream of using them, but everytime I've told their parents that their name choices were nice, pretty and cute. You'd think they'd show you the same courtesy! But yes, defo won't tell anyone before baby is born!

I love Arya. It's on our very short list for this baby.
As for the pronunciation, I live in a large city in the southern US and I hear it pronounced with both 2 and 3 syllables. Pick which one you like, remind those that need it, and then don't worry about it.
