What do you think of the girls name Aya? Aya Daisy?

PrincessMaddi Mon 18-Jul-11 13:30:43

pronounced eye-ah

Very nice smile

Mmm, no.

Looks like it's missing something and doesn't 'go' with Daisy.

I think ayah is a word meaning nursemaid / nanny in other countries?

That was what I thought of anyway.

SardineQueen Mon 18-Jul-11 13:45:50

Oh here you go, it also means a verse from the Koran.

I know it's a different spelling but I think the pronounciation is the same.

Sounds a bit made-up to me -and a bit like 'hiya' as in "Hiya, Daisy!!"

Listen to DELHI.

'AYA' is what my dad/brothers/other male relatives say when they hurt themselves

I think it is short for 'aaagh ya bastard'

It is a strange name

Hiya Aya
Nah, sounds odd

Aya in scotland is what you say when you stub your toe or hammer your finger, said harshly a'la Billy Connelly.

However, it sounds nice when said softly.

Friends DD is Maya (May-a not my-a) for something similar but notconfused myself there!

I'd think you'd lost an 'n' (Anya)

Like it a lot. I know sisters of Egyptian descent whose names are Ana and Aya.

I know of an Ayah, which has African roots, and means bright/twinkling

NettoSuperstar Tue 19-Jul-11 01:17:15

It sounds like a noise, rather than a name.

Aya Daisy doesn't go, the Aya looks like it's not finished, maybe Ayah would be better? But not with Daisy. It sounds a bit wishy washy to be honest. What does it mean?
