I work in a school and there’s a girl in one of my classes named Zylia (z-eye-lah). I thought it was a very pretty and exotic sounding name. What are your thoughts?

It may be made up by adding a “z” in front of the Greek name Xylia which means “of the forest”. It has an exotic feel to it and I can see the appeal. And in this age of popular names being over used, a parent who chooses this name for their daughter wouldn’t have to worry about another girl having the same name in her class.
