Avaia / Avaya ???

WDYT of the name Avaia / Avaya? I can’t find much about it, but this is what I seemed to find:

Pronounced Uh-vay-uh
In Hindu means “To Arrive or Inform”
In Ukrainian means “A Cherished Place”

I’m loving this name. What’s your first impression, and do you know any more about it? Thanks!

It’s pretty. It sounds very trendy with all the connections to [name]Ava[/name], [name]Amaya[/name], even [name]Nevaeh[/name] etc.
That is cool it has history and meaning in two very different traditions however.

I can see some people pronouncing this a - VIE - a.

I think a VAY a is maybe a little more intuitive from Avaia spelling (ironically), but I think Avaya looks a little better, the i gets kind of lost between the a’s in Avaia…or like I want to say [name]Ava[/name] -ee- a or something bizarre.

I’ve never heard of it, but I would pronounce it a-VIE-a instinctively with either spelling. Isn’t there a bottled water called Avaya? That’s the first thing I thought of, though it’s not a bad thing.
