Mia is quite popular. I prefer Lia

I like Maya too

Should Helina be Helena ?

On similar lines, I like Lara and Lyra

Or Leah

think Helina should be Halina - odd internet name dp came up with - spologies to any halina's reading this!

Lara - too Lara crofty - or that mouthy Doctor off Casualty/Holby City!

Maya would be my favourite, then Leah - I don't like the spelling 'Lia' though because it's too close to 'liar'

Spell it Maia - Greek goddess known for her beauty.

Maya is a South African civilization. Probably not what you want to name your daughter.

I like Maya or Mia.
Also LOVE Helena, but I don't think that's what you had in mind.

Think that's South American Civilization wink, but what would be wrong with a South African Civilization? I like the name Maia.

S. American, obviously smile

We have a Maia so love that
Mia is okay.
Really dislike the other two.

Maya is a Hebrew name too. It means water.

So it isn't just a South American civilisation.

Very pretty name. I also like Leah and Helena.

all the leah's i have known have been gorgeous little things. love that name.

Oh, Maya is also an Indian name meaning ' illusion' in Sanskrit so it seems to have a significant meaning in lots of cultures which is on thing we really liked about it.

Maya is my favourite from your list. I don't really like the others.
