    I don't see how you can pronounce Alia as "Alaya". I don't know a single language where "i" is pronounced "ay", certainly not in English —*it's a confusing & completely ilogical pronunciation for that spelling.

    Aria would my pick.

    I really love the name Aria. I like it for it's musical theme and also it's ease to say and spell.

    I agree with sugarplumfairy (again). I know a girl named Alaia, if you like that spelling.

    I'm not a fan of Aria, but in this case I'd choose it over Alia.

    Alia is confusing. I'd say it as AH-lee-ah (not like Aaliyah or Dahlia, somewhere between). I really have trouble even seeing where you're getting the ah-LAY-ah pn from, and the Leya nn is even more confusing. Maybe if you spelt it Alea? But that looks weird. Aleia? I don't know.
