"My name is Aliya, has been for 40 years now. I've been so grateful to have an unusual name, there have been few times when I someone hears my name that they don't compliment me on it. When I was growing up the closest any other name came was Leah, but I've never met anyone else with the name. Be prepared to spell it through your life, and to have it mis-pronounced frequently. I was told that in Hawaiian it means "brackish water, where the fresh water meets the sea" in Arabic "the daughter of a prince or princess" and in Yiddish "to move, or ascend; the ascension". I love all of the meanings.
I love it, and wouldn't want any other name.
Aliya! (a-lee-ya)" Nov. 26, 2008:

"My daughter is almost 1 year old and I named her Aliya. I wanted to give her a little originality so I spelled it this way. I do not pronounce the y. People have trouble spelling it and when they see it often say it wrong. Sometimes I wish I named her something easier." Aug. 26, 2009:
"I have never met anyone with a name anywhere close to my name. Anyone who understands where it comes from thinks its a gorgeous name but i've never been a fan of those who find out my name and tell me its ugly (Which has happenend by the way) Most people pronounce it wrong but i got used to it. Some people i know don't talk to me because they say that i can never make it through life with a name like ALIYA but the singer did it... Sure it was spelt Aaliyah its a little different but its pronounced the same. If she can do it why can't we!" Aug. 25, 2009:
