I love this name but I don't like the fact is has Camel in it.

Essa Says:


This name reminds me of chameleons. Much prefer Amelia and even Camilla, though I'm not a huge fan.

Essa Says:


I disagree! 'ia' is so often pronounced as 'ya', particularly in Amelia, it just sounds like your saying 'ee-uh' really fast. I wouldn't say 'ya' in Maia though, it's My-uh not My-yuh.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


It's like a mix of Camilla and Amelia, I prefer this over the other two. It doesn't sound as snobby.

jordalini Says:


I know someone with this name, and she pronounces it like Amelia, I think your pronunciation would be confusing, because is does not make a ya sound in English when following a L. The ya sound only happens when following an A like Maia, or an E like Leia. The ee-uh sound always follows a consonant, whereas the ya follows a vowel.
In addition the pronunciation you have given sounds very disjointed, if you really like it, you can coach everyone to say it how how you want, but I think this name has a pretty obvious pronunciation.

I think it's so pretty! How do you pronounce it though? Google says "kuh-mEE-lee-uh" Like Amelia with a C in front. I wonder if kuh-mel-ee-uh or kuh-mel-ya would work too.
