"My name is Aiyana I'm 17 going on 18 June 2nd and I love my name now I embrace because it's me. Yes it hard to get it right the first time. However no one is perfect and not everyone is going to like the name but I love. I never use to really like the name for the simple fact that I seemed boring and do different. I never met anyone with the same name as me or spelled as me. However I meet a girl a year older than name Iyana with same pronunciation as me. I pronounce mine as "eye-yon-na" the (A) is silent. I love the meaning of the name and if anyone has the same name as me be proud of who you are because it's good to be different from other and not have a basic name that you could find on a key chain or soda bottle. It's as original as it can get." Jan. 19, 2016:
"My name is "Aiyana". I am now 17 about to be 18 in April. I didn't know my name was this popular; especially the spelling." Jan. 22, 2015:
"My name is Aiyana. Its rare and beautiful and I find it is a part of me even when I don't love the way people respond it in english. As if it was something hurtful to their mouth. But nonetheless, it is me and I will live loving my name." Sep. 18, 2014:
"I kind of have this name, my name is Iyana (eye-yah-nah). The only problem with the name is that my little sister stills calls me Ya-Ya (she came up with this when she was 1, and she's now 6). Joy. XD" Feb. 8, 2014:
"This is my daughter's name, who is now two. We pronounce it I-on-a. I love her name, I originally saw it in a book as an african name meaning beautiful blossom or beautiful bloom, and now i see a lot of native american comments meaning eternal blossom. I think it's nice either way. Personally I don't care too much about what people claim the meaning to be because who really knows??!! Someone could have made it up for all I care it still sounds pretty, and we had good intentions when we chose this name for our beautiful baby girl! Were now expecting our second child, boy or girl is a surprise so i'm on the hunt for a girl name to go nicely with it. (if it's a boy he will be named after dad)" Jan. 13, 2014:
"This is my name. I love it. I find it beautiful. People say it's native american when it is in fact African American. I have only met four other Aiyanas. I pronouce it I-yawn-uh. It's orginally pronounced Awe-ee-yawn-uh though." Dec. 5, 2012:
"i gave my new baby this name aiyana? on the 3/5/2011 can anyone tell me what navtie american tribe used this name. my email firstname.lastname@example.org" Jun. 22, 2012:
"My name is Aiyana, I have never meet anyone with the same name. I have always been told it is a pretty name. I was named it as a Native American name. My parents told me that they meet someone when I was a baby named Aiyana but, I personally hasn't. I would like to meet someone with the same name. I say my name without the I. But I was born 1998 so it wasn't really commen. If you would like to get ahold of me my email is: email@example.com
Thank You" Dec. 21, 2011:
"My name is Aiyana. I was born in 1995, and I have NEVER met another person with the same name as me. When I read these responses, I was shocked. (My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk.) I have been going by Shaylie or Shay the past 4 years because it was my stage name when I was in a band, but it stuck. The band of course split, but it was neat. I am native american, and it means everlasting bloom." Oct. 12, 2010:
"My name is that but my mom spelled it the way its pronounce it Iyahna. I loveeee it" Aug. 31, 2010:
"im gonna name my daughter aiyana i think its a beautifull name and idk how in the hell some of u say it ryhmes with banana (A-YAH-NAH) AND (BA-NAN-AH) YEA IT DONT RYHME SO GET YOUR HEAD STRAIGHT." Apr. 5, 2010:
"My daughter was born in 2005 and we named her Aiyana. We were having trouble choosing a boys name, but my boyfriend and I immediately agreed on Aiyana for our little girl. As someone else said, we liked that the name was Naive American meaning eternal bloom. I just found out today that that is not true, so it is a little disappointing. As my boyfriend has Native American roots we found the meaning to be fitting. But its a pretty name either way. It was interesting to read about others' experiences with this name, and I'm a little worried now that she may be teased, but kids are cruel no matter what your name is, I think." May. 8, 2009:
"my name is aiyana, i was born in 1996. i have NEVER met anyone with the same name as me and pronouced the same also its pronounced like so EYE-YAH-Nah, i will proboally name my daughter this once i get older" Apr. 21, 2009:

"This is a terrible name. Anyone who would name their children this name is cursing their child, seriously. My name is Aiyana and it is SO tedious to spell and respell it over and over again for people, have people constantly forget it ( and hence, forget ME as a person ) and have people mispronounce it. I do not blame anyone for not being able to pronounce or spell it. It's spelled in a totally bizarre way. This name is overdoing it in terms of uniqueness. Uniqueness is good; ambiguity and cumbersomeness are not.
Do give your child this awkward name." Mar. 8, 2010:

"Well my name is Aiyana and I like my name because it feels like a very unique name for me and a lot of people aren't named Aiyana so I am very glad Aiyana's my name :)" Apr. 7, 2017:
"My name is Aiyana and I will be 16 in march of 2017. people always compliment it and say it suits me because I look like a flower too. no one spells it right and i've only met one other person named Aiyana. I liked it better when it was less popular, but I guess theres nothing I can do about that." Dec. 4, 2016:
"my name is Aiyana I pronounce it i-yan-a. I was born in 2002 it is hard to find merchandise with my name on it. Aiyana is a Native American name it means forever flowering anyways if you want tog talk to me email me at :Yannyerickson@yahoo.com thank you bye" Sep. 4, 2014:
"My name is Aiyana and I was born in 1979. Honestly I never really liked my name growing up but I was always told it was pretty. Living with this name for over thirty years the one thing that has remained constant is that EVERYONE mispronounces it over the phone! SO annoying. As I've gotten older i guess I appreciated how rare it was but now more people are naming their daughters this cause as a child I never met another Aiyana until like 2 years ago when a little girl had my name at my sons school. I still don't really love my name but at least it was unique... Now it's not so unique anymore. Whatever :/" Apr. 22, 2014:
"My daughter is two years old and her name is Aiyanna. My husband is Native American so we chose this name because it means eternal blossom. We pronounce it is as "A(literally saying the letter A)-YAWN-UH"" Oct. 4, 2013:
"I my beautiful daughter born in 2007 Aiyana. I found the name in a baby book that said it was Native American meaning "forever flowering". It was the only name for a girl that her father and I could agree on and I feel in love with the name immediately. We pronounce it as A-yan-ah. I love the name because its unique without being "weird". Its uncommon and beautiful. The name suits my beautiful baby girl now almost 6 yo." May. 31, 2013:
"My husband and I named our daughter, who was just born Nov. 25th, 2011 Aiyana. I heard the name Ayana as a middle name of someone in my other daughter's class, and I loved it! My husband insisted on the spelling of Aiyana, so that's what we went with. I pronounce it like Ayana because it sounds pretty that way. Anyway, no one in our family has trouble remembering or spelling it, though they did with her older sister, Aaliyah. Everyone tells me how beautiful and unique their names are!" Jan. 19, 2012:
"Aiyana ... the a is silent & makes it sound like a i .. so people who has the name AIYANA its ok of a name but sounds black & thats the only prob im 13 & PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF ME WHAT DO I DO TXT .. ME TOO HELP ... 6825565501 !!" Jan. 10, 2011:
"Aiyana is a broad name, not a Native American/American Indian description for tribal description. It is an Ancient name however. It means: "Remember The Struggle". It was an expression by Russians(viking descendants)to remember the struggle defending against what in norse languages were called Skraelings (dark skinned people). It is Norse in origin and a white pride name to some actually, but there is however an American Indian relevance which is "Ayianna". The crossing of the names clashing comes from The Norseman who sailed to "Vinland"(The USA Now)long before Christopher Columbus. They had once again met with the American Indians as had happened in Siberia. The American Indians and Norseman both used the term Aiyana and Ayianna interchangeably and many people do not research to see the connections. When they met in Canada though and even as far into the Midwest of Vinland(Norse name for America) aka Turtle Island(Indian for Americas) aka The USA, they made peace with each other which became the sweet eternal bloom until "colonized Zionist settlers" came into the land after 1492 of course along with the other settlers aka pilgrims that had nothing to do with original Northern European culture anymore. The ones who know the peace making history between the two groups that coined "Aiyana" are keeping a beautiful era and truth alive. It is a gorgeous and truly powerful name. The ones who lost their heritage on either side of Europeans or American Indians and history are simply lost. The name Aiyana is one of the greatest names ever as it points out history and is against the average lost American brainwashed by Zionist supremacists." Apr. 17, 2010:
"we just had our little girl, and named her AIYANA as in aye-yah -nah people love the name ...and we too thought it was american indian meaning eternal bloom......as my wife has american indian in her lol we are also form n.z and im not to fussed about the teasing as kids always mock or tease others anyway...rather her be teased after a fruit rather than other things lol" Dec. 18, 2009:
"the only thing i hate about aiyana is
that poeple call me A YAH NAH." Oct. 29, 2009:
"Hey, My name is Aiyana and i just came across this website. I really didn't like my name at frist but now i sorta like it cause my name isn't as common as most names and its sorta unique. though.. i get teased alot.. with banana" Sep. 11, 2009:
"Often claimed to be a Native American name, Aiyanna's origins are actually quite obscure. Probably a respelling of the Somali name Ayanna of modern coinage." Aug. 7, 2009:
"my name is aiyana and people often say it sooo wrong..they have no clue how to pronounce it!! it can get very frustrating because my teachers don't call me by how it's supposed to be said they all spell it wrong too.my friends ask if you pronounce the "a" long or the "i" long or don't even say the "a" at all. my coaches call me A for short. i pronounce it as "EYE YON A" sometimes i don't even know how it was meant to be said :/" Jan. 15, 2009:
"I named my daughter Aiyana based on the fact that it meant eternal bloom. However have found by looking on the internet, it actually has no american indian meaning, rather more ethiopian/african - meaning morning flower or something like that. Quite disappointing as it is widely advertised as native american indian.
I agree though that it is a beautiful sounding name, slightly hard for people to pronounce when reading it. We are from NZ and are maori (indigenous people of NZ) it sounds and is pronounced like Maori language.
Yes my daughter is always being called aiyana banana but she loves her name." Nov. 13, 2008:
"I happened to come across ths website after doing a search on the name Aiyana. My name is Aiyana and I was born in 1964. Growing up was rather difficult because I have such an unusual name. I have heard some many pronounciations of my name that I consider it a bleesing when someone pronounces it right.I pronounce it "Eye-Yah-Nah." Have heard Ariana, Iyama, Elyana...
I recently had the pleasure of meeting the newest grandaughter of a friend, named Aiyana." May. 10, 2006:
"My daugher's name is Aiyana - Native american for eternal bloom. Because she is only three years old, people often think she is saying brianna or diana when she states her name. Only problem she may have is that is rhymes with banana. hopefully she won't want to wear a lot of yellow, be tall and slough. Seriously though, I've always had really good response from people - they state they love her name." Mar. 12, 2006:
