I don’t care for it and would assume it’s a little girl.  But it’s unique, and if you love it, then it’s perfect 🙂

I agree that it sounds more like a girl’s name. I like Elijah much better. 🙂

Why don’t you just call him Elijah?

I also don’t really like it, sorry. 

It sounds feminine, and if you didn’t put in the name Elijah I would have no idea how to pronounce it.

Is there a cultural background behind it?

I say go for it. Nyjah Huston is a famous skateboarder and he seems to have done ok with his name.

I’m not a fan of it, I think people will have a hard time pronouncing it. That being said, it is you and your husband’s decision and you have to be happy.

I dont particually like it, I dont like the name Elijah tho.. Just keep in mind you may have to do a bit of correcting how to say it properly throughout his life, school etc. But if your fine with doing so then go for it. And congratulations 🙂

I’m all for unique names.  As a teacher, I especially like names that are interesting but easy to pronounce (which I had no trouble from your spelling). 

Don’t worry what other people think.

As long as you are prepared for people not being able to pronounce it after reading it, you should be fine. If you like it, you like it.

We have our girl name picked and we get lots of not so nice comments. But we like it so it doesn’t matter. = )

I also don’t understand why you wouldn’t just spell it Elijah? I don’t really see how “Nyjah” can even be pronounced as “Elijah”

@PitBulLover: I believe she meant it rhymes with Elijah, not that it’s pronounced exactly like Elijah.

OP, if I heard it, my first instinct would be that it was a girl’s name, but I think it would be cute for a boy too. There are plenty of androgynous names out there these days, so if you like it, go with it.
