Spelling it with a J would take away all the italian vibes, which is the whole point of this name. And Joia/Jioia/Joya doesn't look as appealing.

My instinct was to pronounce it with a hard G sound. Otherwise it was pronounced accurately. If you really love the sound, spelling it with a J. should clarify pronunciation.

This name has such a pretty sound! I'm afraid it would always be butchered here in the US, though. :(
