So i searched and searched for a name beginning with the letter K' for my daughter while i was pregnant, and i came upon this beautiful name Kaliyah i just fell in love with. I knew it was perfect for my baby girl. I also i adore long meaningful names...as appose to something so blah as Ana..sorry no offense but its just not unique too many common names out there. Well off subject but back to the point of this unique name Kaliyah i gave my daughter i just added an extra L' to it. The extra L' made her name even more unique, and specially personalized just for her.
