Ah made me smile :') I'm glad I helped and didn't annoy. lol
Aliyah (or Alaia, as I prefer) is such a beautiful sounding name. But it does sound too much like Amaya.
And I agree, finding a name that can have the nickname as Ali would definitely honor Alice.
Alanis- Ali can be the nickname, and the fact that it ends in -is almost makes it sound like Alice. In fact, take out the a & n, and you get Alis. Its beautiful and mysterious. Amaya, Ayden, Aubrey, Ainsley, and Alanis? I think it looks great, in my opinion.
Nameberry says its from Alan and means "handsome, cheerful", but this site says its a form of Allena and means "precious, awakening".

We talked about this yesterday, my husband and I. I brought that up, as well. But I think I'm just absolutely in love with it now.. The combo, the meaning, everything about it reminds me of her honestly.. especially Grace. You just had to know this woman... but anyway,
my husband made a great point on the Amaya and Aliyah thing, and that is we don't call Amaya by her full name, unless she's in trouble [lol], and she has nn herself 'Maya.. and it's always stuck for everyone in our family.
Aliyah would be shorted to Ali, so we would have Maya and Ali, which I think is okay. I mean, when they are grown I'm sure they will use their full names, or possibly even middle names.. but they won't be too worried about it by then I don't think.

Okay.. I do believe our final name is Aliyah Grace..
Our boys' name is Asher Ellis [Ellis was my grandpa's name]...
You all have helped me so so much.. I really appreciate it!
I have learned a lot of different things about the name Alivia,
and while I still like it a lot, it's just not the name for us for a few reasons.
So thank you to everyone who has left comments and replied on here
for all the insight and opinions! You have made my choice so much more clear!
