Thoughts on the name Kaia?
What do you think of the name Kaia?
Do you think people will have trouble pronouncing it? Can anyone think of any way that a girl could be teased for that name in school?
We have a son named Mason - do you think the two names are too different from one another to be a sibset?
Thanks for any feedback!

I really like the sound of the name
I do work with a Maori man called this, but have always thought it has quite a feminine sound to it.
He pronounces it KAY-a (so it sorta rhymes with player) but if I hadn't heard the name before I'd probably say it KIE-a (sorta rhymes with liar), although in both cases emphasis is on first syllable with a soft ah at the end.
I think it does sound a bit more exotic than Mason, but not outrageously so, it could work fine as a sibset

Kaia has been a favorite name of mine for years, although I go back and forth between the spelling Caia and Kaia.
There are going to be pronunciation troubles with almost every name. I know a Kylie that's been called Kaylee multiple times; a Maisie who has been called My-zee and my friend Zoe has been called Zo by half the substitute teachers. With the rise of Kai, I don't think you'd have that much of a problem.
I don't see any problem with teasing, and I think Mason and Kaia/Kaia and Mason is a fairly good sibset. Kaia does ride on the trendy side, and so does Mason, so both names go surprisingly well together.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor maeve "lena" ~ vivienne isla ~ celia matilda "cici" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~
