Which one is a better name?
Tisha or Siya

Giratina Thu 15-Sep-16 21:14:32

Is Siya pronounced See-ah or Sigh-ah?

Which culture are you and the father from?
I don't know any children with either name, and I live in a very mixed, multicultural area.

Never heard of either name tbh and I wouldn't know how to pronounce Siya - sorry, not much help I know

Tisha is a bit sneezy but could be a nickname for Leticia.

Siya looks nice but I'm unsure of the pronounciation.

Tisha.

Siya reminds me of that singer who wears a wig over her face.

I know a Sia and it's a lovely name

Tisha.

Never heard of either of these. I prefer Tisha; Siya sounds like "See-ya!" to me.

siya - See ya

Tisha will be confused for Trisha here...

boy or girl?

Thank you all for your views smile Actually I am an Indian but looking for a name which is to pronunce here in UK as well and sounds good.
What about Arshia as a name and Sia a nickname?

Thanks

I think Arshia is going to lead to arse-related teasing, OP.

WaitrosePigeon Fri 16-Sep-16 14:42:07

Both awful.

Solasum Fri 16-Sep-16 14:42:56

Not Arshia. It would not be kind

W8woman Fri 16-Sep-16 14:46:27

What about Esha?

If you're not English people will usually be less judgemental about your name choices because foreigners aren't so easy to pigeonhole into the class system wink.

I know an Esha and I think it's a lovely name.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 16-Sep-16 14:58:12

Arshia definitely has 'arse' teasing potential. Sia by itself would be better.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 16-Sep-16 17:32:13

OP, I like, Kaya, Kiki and my favourite, Priti.
There are some lovely Indian names, including Kate.

Siya is nice.

Stay far, far away from Arshia, unfortunate nicknames will happen.
