Full Name for Aya

    Hi All!

    I really like Aya as a nickname, but want it to be short for a longer name. I’ve thought of perhaps Aliyah and Aria, but wondering about any other suggestions.

    Thanks!

    I have friends named Ayana and Ayaka. Neither go by Aya, but they could work? Ayaka’s a Japanese name, but it’s simple enough to pronounce that it’s not really a problem in English….
    I think Aya works well on it’s own, though, not really necessary to make it longer if you already like it…

    Interesting. I think Ayana is pretty.

    I think Aniya is pretty and could work. I think it is typically pronounced Ah-NYE-ah, but can also be pronounced Ah-NEE-ah.

    My first thought was Alivia. Might be a stretch but I think it works.

    aya doesnt sound like a nick name to me. it sounds like its missing something in front of it. like it should be maya or kaya or tanaya. but aya is also a real name so i would jsut use it as a full name.

    Ha, it certainly looks like it’s missing the front of it if you don’t capitalize it! ;) And yes, I know it can stand alone, but I prefer the style of longer full names with shorter nicknames.

    I like Ayana too, though still Aliyah best I think. Any other thoughts?
