Which spelling of girls name do you prefer?


Hey there, I'm really loving the name Raiya (Ray-a) but I don't want it to be pronounced incorrectly as Rye-a. So out of the following spellings do you think would be best:

Raiya
Raya
Raeya
Rayah

If you can think of any other ways, please let me know.

Thanks
Stacy x x

I think Raeya is the clearest indicator of pronunciation. And looks cute too!

Personally I think Raya is the best spelling of the bunch

I think Raiya would be mispronounced as Rye-ya
and Rayah in some places in the UK would be pronounced Ray-uh/Ray-oh

I think Raeya would be pronounced correctly, I just prefer a simpler spelling

Raeya



It's a unique spelling which I like and the pronounciation makes sense.

I prefer Raya, I'm a fan of keeping things simple when it comes to spellings.

I would pronounce all of them the way you're intending at first glance, but I think Raiya has the most potential to cause mispronounciations.

Thanks Star. I think your right with the simpler spelling. Hubby is also leaning towards Raya. Hoping to find out the gender on Tuesday. If it's a boy then we have picked Ethan x

Raeya, like other girls said, it's spelled the way it sounds. I worry Raya will have people saying "Rah - yah" when pronouncing. Plus 'ae' is awesome. (Fae and Rae are my favorite examples.)
