Will be meeting this girl at the weekend but have only seen written down, so thought I would canvas opinions! I would go with Asia with a T at the beginning, but a quick lazy google had Tay-ja and even Tay-a.

I'd guess Taya. What country/language is the name from?

Not quite the same but i know a Teija and its pronounced like 'Tay then Asia.'

I'd have gone for Tie-jar, or Tie-ya. But it could be any of the other options.

I think you'll have to find a nice way to ask.

I'd plump for Tie-ya.

sounds quite nice when you say it like that.

Recently heard a 'Sienna', whose name was spelled 'Cea-enna' hmm

I used to look after a girl called Taija and it was pronounced Tay-juh

Tie-ah, with a short 'a' at the end.

I was hoping to just go with the concensus and hope for the best, but there doesn't seem to be one! Will just have to wing it!

Tay-Ah. I made that up though. smile

Reading just your heading I decided on Tie-a (going up at then end to show I wasn't sure how to say it!)

lizzieloubee1 Fri 08-Jul-11 21:57:51

Tie ja or Tie yuh.

Right, I'm going with Taya! Surely they get this a lot though, so won't be terribly upset if I get it wrong!
