I can't get home and away off my mind when I say Elsa. And Abra??? How can you call a girl after an undergarment! Or am I the only one to think of that?

I like Leona, Tess/a, Serena, Sienna and also Esme but that's not an 'a' one. Just thrown in to confuse you.

There's always Hannah which of course is my favourite for obvious reasons...

Yes she was.

I know it's already been mentioned but our girls name is Isla. Roos girls name was Maya.

What about:

Anya
Anna
Nia
Mia
Xena (DH had this on his list last time but I said no way)
Fiona
Shona
Emma

We went with Isla first time for our LO and am now struggling to find another girls name that fits. We are trying to avoid another name ending in 'a'. Might have to start another post!

Good luck choosing!

Aphra is phenomenal, was it after Aphra Behn?


I don't know, but from now I'll pretend that's true :wink:

I've just realised I've never once suggested my own name, which does meet your criteria! I don't know why I didn't even think of it because I do like it.

Although my mum is a terrible speller and it is spelt wrong, but my name is Shirah (should be Shira).

Can I do a bit of a thread hijack?

How do you pronounce Nia? And where does it come from? One of the names I like is Nyah (pronounced n-EYE-ah). I am hesitant to use it though as I like Gaelic names and it appears to be Swahili (I think) and was used in a Mission Impossible film... I came across it in the school I work and had always assumed it was Gaelic until I did a bit of research recently. If I type in Nyah and Gaelic it does come up on one page as a variant of Nia but I thought Nia was pronounced n-EE-ah.

The girl in question is also in the same class as the girl who first introduced me to E's name so it would feel a bit weird to use it if I didn't have a connection to it iykwim...! :)

A girl at my high school was Nia and it was said (nee-yah) like Mia.

I have a cousin called Naya (like Maya). I think it's Indian...

The meaning of the name Nia is Bright

The origin of the name Nia is Welsh

Notes: Welsh form of Niamh. Also a short form of names ending in nia. Also a Swahili name meaning "Purpose" Nia Vardalos, writer/actress. Nia Peeples, actress. Nia Long, actress



It was also on my list for Ducky. It should be pronounced with a proper 'ah' at the end rather than 'uh' - Nee-ah. Love it!

Thanks all! I think I'd read it was short for Antonia as well. Maybe this mum just made up her daughter's name ;) I like it but not sure I will use it after all - I'd need a better reason than, "Some random child at school was called it"!!
