I love the sound but I don't think I could spell this name right in three tries on pronunciation alone. I like the look of Kya better or even Kaia better.

This is infinitely more attractive than other similar-sounding names like Kaya. Very beautiful.

I prefer this to Kaia even though they're pronounced the same.

This is awesome. It sounds relatively "normal" (it probably sounds like a real name to most people), has a beautiful meaning, sounds nice and is still rather uncommon. This is a total gem imo!!
