    TBH, I don’t really care for any of them. If I had to pick, it would be Helena. I think a lot of those names would lead to puzzled looks on their teachers face when they see the class roster and have to take attendance.

    Alaia is really pretty the way you pronounce it. I’m glad you did those pronunciations because I was looking at those names like ummmmmm hmmmmmmm?

    peachacid:  I didn’t judge you for picking non traditional names. I’ve actually become really good at figuring out Jamaican, African, and Guyanese names..but the names you have up there, for the most part, I would probably think of a couple of ways to pronounce each one. Carys-I would either pronounce it as “carries” or “car-is” or “cah-ris”. If I were picking a name for a baby, I would just want to pick one that couldn’t be screwed up easily.

    peachacid:  Okay, but in reality, I really like Alaia and Naia. I think they sound very soft and feminine, but are still quite unique.

    I voted Sterling. It’s cool, strong, but still pretty. There’s also a castle in Scotland with that name FYI, but it’s spelled Stirling. I also like Alaia and Anara.

    peachacid:  I voted for Naia because I tend to like shorter names. Close second is Carys. I know someone named Carys and it’s a beautiful name. I don’t think your names are difficult at all.

    I chose anara I think its unique and pretty and I think people would have a hard time screwing that one up lol trust me after decades of ppl mispronouncing your name it can be super annoying (and mine aren’t that difficult IMO but there are always airheads out there LOL 😛
