It's English and British

I know somebody who is in the same situation!

ambercat Says:


I can't get past that P-I-A is used as an unflattering acronym to describe people who are a pain in the rear end. Probably not a good idea to stick on a little girl, even if she is a pain.

stellarvra99 Says:


Pia is just gorgeous! Short and spunky!

phunkyvida Says:


In Sanskrit Pia means "Beloved or One Who is Loved" and in Latin Pia means "Pious". Both Latin and Sanskrit pronunciations are the same: PEE-ah. I would be afraid of people teasing the child (Pee-er someone who pees???)

I actually have a friend that is named Sophia, but to make her popular name more unique, everyone calls her Pia. Maybe this or something similar instead of using it as a full name

What accent is that? I hear that a lot of people pronounce -er as -a and vice versa, but I can't seem to force my accent to do it and I don't hear it that much where I live.

meek Says:


I want to love it but yes it sounds like pee er

EW314 Says:


I think it's cute and lively. Teasing potential here though...

Impwood Says:


I think this is a sweet and pretty name, but where I live it sounds exactly the same as, er, the more common way of saying one who urinates. I know it's not a real word, but I'm sure small children would turn it into one!
