    Too exotic?

    I recently saw the name Priya (pree-ah) and loved the meaning of the name, but I was wondering if it sounded to exotic/ foreign for an American girl?

    No, I don't think it's too exotic. USA is a multicultural country so you hear names from nearly every culture here.
    I kinda love Priyah but I see it for first time now. I also heard Priyanka several times. It sounds like somebody from India to me but it's quite good connection

    I know a Priya and she is Indian. To me the name would make me assume that she was Indian or has Indian heritage. I personally don't think it works on a white girl, but to each their own.

    I love it but do understand that it is more typically Indian. Do you like Petra??

    Maybe using the variation, Pria (which is more reminiscent of Mia) if you're set on using it. I came across it in this movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469958/
