This is our 2nd Baby Girl and we cannot agree on the name. The baby is now 2 weeks old and is still nameless!!!. We just can't seem to agree. Our 1st girl was lot easier as we both agreed from early on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I don't like either. One sounds like Nylon and one sounds like Kayak.

Of the two I'd go for Nylah, although I'd spell it Nyla.

With Kiyah I wouldn't be sure if it was meant to be pronounced key-ah or kye-ah. Kiah looks better.

If you can't agree after 2 weeks it sounds like neither is the right name. Maybe you need to consider some other names? What kind of names do you like? What is DD1's name?

Nylah, but not keep. What about Nia?

Pigwitch Sun 24-Jan-16 14:03:14

I don't like either of them sorry.

I wouldn't be able to tell if the child was male or female - that was my first thought.

I knew a Nylah growing up (she was my mother's friend). It's unusual but not super exciting. Not a fan of Kiyah at all...looks made up even if it is an actual name.

These might be along a similar line:

Finola1step Sun 24-Jan-16 14:26:53

Nylah but spell it Nyla.

I like Kiyah but I'd spell it Kiah (although there is then uncertainty as to whether it's key-ah or kye-ah?)

Don't like either and no idea how to pronounce them.

WanderingTrolley1 Sun 24-Jan-16 14:45:39

Neither. Are they made-up?

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Sun 24-Jan-16 15:38:24

Oh god neither
I suppose spelt Nyla and Kaya they might be ok but as they are - ick

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Sun 24-Jan-16 15:47:13

Neither. Both awful.

MamaLazarou Sun 24-Jan-16 16:10:33

I don't like either of them, sorry.

How about Lila?

IoraRua Sun 24-Jan-16 17:24:44

Nylah looks like nylon.
Kiyah....I just think Kia cars.

What about Kyra, Kayla, Lara, Cara, Sara, Maia, Lyra, Myra?

ProfGrammaticus Sun 24-Jan-16 17:26:58

Choose an actual name, there are loads of lovely ones.

YakTriangle Sun 24-Jan-16 17:27:39

Nylah written down looks like the noise someone might make whilst jeering and sticking their tongue out. How is Kiyah pronounced?

LineyReborn Sun 24-Jan-16 17:29:53



Not Ki-Ora.

AuntieStella Sun 24-Jan-16 17:32:47

Of the two, I'd go for Nylah (because I can see at least two ways to pronounce Kiyah, and I wouldn't want to be forever correcting people. But perhaps you re nicer and more patient than me).

CrystalMcPistol Sun 24-Jan-16 17:36:18

Nyla is an actual name.

almapudden Sun 24-Jan-16 17:48:25

Neither, they're chavvy

I know a Kiyah, spelled Kaya. I'd go for that.
