Still deciding on names here (4th girl) My OH loves Aya (pronounced eye-a)

Do you like it? Please don't be rude BTW- I'm just asking from one mum to a next.

Thanks , got there eventually. Not a wind up. There was an Argentinian tennis player called Mercedes Maria Paz , always thought it was a cool name

I love your older girls names! I think Hazel, Olive, or Rose would work well.

@Allthingsdecember my mum is Hazel. It is a gorgeous name!

I think a name starting with a Vowel would fit better.
Willow, Sage, India & Elva
Willow, Sage, India & Arla
Willow, Sage, India & Olive
Willow, Sage, India & Oracle

I wanted Mary for DC4 (turned out to be a boy).
Mercedes is nice, too.
Aya sounds unfinished, well said.

So true Mary would be refreshing. Lol.

I have three girls at home - Willow, Sage and India. They are 5, 3 and 2.

Ooh, pretty names!

I think Aya looks a bit incomplete as a name, and doesn’t really ‘go’ with your others.

How about Gaia? Sounds like Aya but it’s definitely in-keeping with your nature theme!

Were you joking about Mary? First I thought you were, now not sure. Because Mary is beautiful and classy and rare these days. I’d choose that over all of my suggestions if you weren’t joking! I don’t love Aya. It’s a bit nothing-y and will blend in with a sea of Isla, Ava, Ella, etc. Boring and will date.
