  • "I gave my Daughter this name Leia pronounced the way it should be "lay-uh" this is actually how you would pronounce it in Hebrew. you can also pronounce the spelling of Leah as "lay-uh" I am not sure where people got the confusion of pronouncing it "Lee ah" but I guess if you say it a certain way when you are reading the Hebrew it could sound like either pronunciation. I hope my Leia makes sure people pronounce her name correctly. When ever I tell people her name I usually get oh Princess Leia so far it seems to have worked out. I did not however name her for the star wars character even thought I love star wars. For some reason I just prefer names with i.... I guess so she can heart the i when she gets holder lol" Jun. 26, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Leia pronounced Leah too :) I do get "lay-uh" a lot from people. I answer to both *shrug*" Nov. 9, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Leia pronounced like "Leah". Most people say it lay-uh because that is how the Princess from star wars pronounces hers. My mother loved star wars and that is actually where my name came from. But she wanted to pronounce it like Leah. I think I would have rather pronounced it Lay-uh- it's more unique. I do love it though." Jul. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate
