Arshia, love it or hate it?
My husband decided Arshia for our daughter name but I'm still confused. I like Sia or Shea more

Sounds like arse-ia.

It's pretty but I think I'd like it more without the r.

Sounds too much like arse sorry

Definitely sounds like arse. What do you mean by your husband has decided ?

I quite like Shea actually.

How do you pronounce it?

I have a Pakistani friend called Arshia. She's lovely but no, not keen not the name (neither is she).

I have taught an Arshia or two. No teasing surprisingly. Much prefer Shae.

Agree, too much like arse and could end up with arsey as a nn

Don't like it.

Much prefer Asha.

Sound like Arse-ier when i pronounce it. confused

I quite like it, but if you aren't happy with it, maybe try to find a compromise that you and your husband both like?

No OP, but Shea is lovely.

No, sorry. It sounds like 'Arse Here'.

Agree with pps, as soon as I saw it the the word arse sprang out at me, it also sounds like arse-here when said out loud - sorry
