    Thoughts on Nia

    So I have developed a HUGE crush on this name. It ends in "a" which was one of my "cannots", but I feel it doesn't sing-song too much with my fiance's last name. (Pronounced AH-vee-lah although English speakers say uh-VEE-lah). And the pronunciation is identical in English and Spanish which is a big deal to me. I am saying nee-ah, but if you think it's pronounced differently, how do you say it?

    What do you think of Nia? Is it too close to Leah and Mia? Does it work on a little Latina baby? Will it age well?

    For the record, not pregnant, or even close.. I just have been obsessed with Nia lately and would like to hear other people's thoughts on it.

    I like Nia well enough, but with the last name, it's too many ee and ahh sounds. What about Naia? (ny-ah, rhymes with Maia)

    I'm not a huge fan of Mia or Leah and thus Nia doesn't really do it for me either. If your looking for great names that work well in Spanish and English there are a ton (I'm in the same boat just add German as a third required language). Including Chloe/Cloe, Ines (one of my favorites), and Miren.
