I love the name Aaliyah, no matter where it comes from =]]]

It will be one of my name considerations if I have a girl when I get married.
It is Hawaiian in origin too

There was a Hawaiian princess named alia. The name in Hawaiian means great joy. I once met a Hawaiian boy with the name Alia, so I guess it can be unisex there. Anyway, my name is Aleah and I love it. I always have. And it has only been the last few years that I have heard of anyone else having it.
I love it

I love that name. Im pregnant of a girl and I really have it in mind. I dont really care about its origin but as long as it has a positive meaning Im cool with it. Besides I love the late singer Aaliyah, she was talented and beautiful. I'm sure my daughter will look much like her. My husband is nigerian and we want to give her Osariemen as her middle name, it means Gods gift. Aaliyah Osariemen... It sounds good
Aaliyah is beautiful !!!!!

Aaliyah is a beautiful unique name!

this name is awsome i fell in love with it since Aaliyah (african american singer) died. she not only sang beautiful but was too young (22) to die. regardless of the meaning or origin. We are now planning on having our second child in hope that GOD rewards us with a beautiful girl because we have a wonderful smart 4 year old. If we do have a girl we will name her AALIYAH! If we have a boy we will be just as glad but will have to be prepared.

i love this name i had to pick something fast for my daughter because i didnt know i was having her so i looked on the net and seen this name aaliyah and fell in love with it. but when i frist seen it the name was hebrew than i meet some people who where muslims and told me that its a muslim name and it had a hole differnt meaning in its name. but really i dont care where its from or what it means i really love this name and at the time i didnt know the singer aaliyah i just loved this name all the way so it should matter if u like it than use it no one asks the meaning or where it came from... thats what i think any ways

Aaliyah is a very pretty name. I heard that it could also be Arabic. I think I might name my 2nd baby girl that. The 1st is Abella Adelaide. Isn't that cute?
middle daughter
written by Courtney Darby, September 09, 2010
When I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter I never thought of another name than Aaliyah. I loved the singer and the sound of her name just flowed so beautifully. My daughter Aaliyah couldn't have carried any other name like this. She sings all the time just like Miss Aaliyah Haughten (RIP). One of my favorite names of all time.
