    Sarah--I don't know which is the proper pronunciation, but there's an Italian restaurant near my house called Fiore's--and it's pronounced fee-OR-ay. I looked it up on forvo, too, and it appears that's closer to the original Italian pronunciation, rather than fee-OR-ee. I had been thinking about Fiore, too, as an alternative to Fiora (maybe because I keep driving by that restaurant and I'm craving Italian now!), but it sort of strikes me as a more masculine-ish Italian surname rather than a FN.

    Fia is fee-ah and the Spanish feo/fea is fay-oh/fay-ah. I don't think it's a reason to completely wipe it from your list, IMO.

    Also Finola (I think there's a soap actress w/this name).

    Agreed! I was just going to post this.

    Besides, while I'm not fluent in Spanish, I still know quite a lot, and fea never crossed my mind for one second in your whole Fia thread. I would hope that you're safe. I am curious, though, with what frequency Fia is given to girls in Spanish-speaking countries... Is it possible to ask your missionary relatives what they would think if they met a Fia?
