I'm confused with pronunciation- is the second syllable pronounced to rhyme with "my," "me," or "may?"

I'd prefer Aliyah/Aaliyah/Aliya as it's closer to the Hebrew (and I think the Arabic) and I find the lay-uh sound unappealing compared to lee-ya.
Assorted spellings of May-ah, Kayla and Layla are very popular so maybe I'm the weirdo - completely possible - but I just don't find may-ah / lay-uh / tay-ah all that pretty, and they are very used.

They both immediately reminded me of baby Aleeah from Teen Mom 2.Expecting Our First.....
DH doesn't want to discuss names until
we know if it's a boy or girl. GRRRRR ARGH!

I love Aleya Whitney.
I like the E in the middle so that it doesn't have 3 As -- elementary school name acrostics will be more fun with the variety. I also really like Whitney paired with it. I don't feel a disconnect, but instead like the distinction as the other options seem to roll together with Aleya too much.
I hope that helps!若兰
I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.
