My Granddaughter's name is also Amaya but it is spelled quite differently. Emaija. Her parents initials are E (dad) and J (mom). Mom is of Bosnian descent and the J in the Bosnian alphabet has a "Y" sound. I like the variation. Emaija also has an older sister Ejahna (Ai-yahnah). Same story....
My eldest granddaughter is Kaelyn. I named her that because her Mom (my daughter) is Kellye.

It's funny you always feel you are being unique without being garish when you name your child. So in 2002 when my daughter was born, I had not yet heard the name (A-mya). Although Mya was a favorite because of the respect I have the author Maya Angelou. So in 8/02 I proudly named my daughter A'myah Ariel. I work in a hospital and since that time I have seen so many variations, but I still think it is a very beautiful and unique name.

Well as you can see I'm adding an I and a H. When I found out I was having a girl I already knew I wanted her name to be Amaiyah. Now that I know the meaning I love it even more. I love it when there's a Night Rain! It's sound is very calming. Hopefully Amaiyah will be as calming as her names meaning. Maybe not in the beginning but I'm hoping within a few months.

My second daughter's name is Amaya Symone. She is 4 years old now and has soon as I heard this name I knew it was perfect. The meaning has personal meaning for me,so I knew I had her name right. When you look at her it fits perfectly as if it were made for her.

Ever since I found out I was having another girl I was decided on the name Amaya. I'm naming her Amaya Gabrielle. This name has stuck with me from the beginning!
