- Personal experiences with the name Amaia: | Edit
We named our 3 month old daughter Amaia Juliette.
We looked and looked and looked for the right name after our beautiful baby daughter was born. It took us three months... We are of South Asian origin and in Sanskrit the word Amaia sounds like A-Maya which can be translated as one without-delusion. But I love the Japanese meaning of it... The monsoons hit Mumbai the night Amaia was born and 'night-rain' was just the perfect name!
