    I'd use Lydia Nicole Atalaya Cotton or Lydia Caroline Atalaya Cotton...something that flows better and has a 'c/k' sound to tie in the surname.

    Thanks! I think all of us know that when naming your child that you dont want any issues with the name that you love. My husband and I think its a beautiful name and I have really tried to make it work. I have always had a positive association of the name from going to visit a place by that name is S.C.
    I tried to change the spelling from the original to help it be pronounced better but it only confused people . Most people know how to say Maya which is a Spanish name as well. So...The previous nameberries told me to go back to the original spelling of the name. I sometimes have to pronounce my own name Anissa pronounced like Lisa. It hasn't bothered me too much.

    I second Lydia Jane Atalaya. Atalaya is lovely, but I'd be concerned about the Jehovah's Witness thing, too.

    Lydia Jane Atalaya flows the best. Having Atalaya as a first name may be complicated because of the pronunciation issue.

    I will have to look more into that. This is the best time to figure that out since I will have this baby in about 6 weeks from now. I have no idea what I will do if this name doesn't work. I have searched forever to find a name I like more than Atalaya. We even have a nickname for her,Attie .
    Lydia is a lovely name we already have girl named Olivia, nicknames Livia. We are naming her Lydia to honor my grandmother. We were not planning on calling her by that name.
