Personal experiences with the name Elya

My name is Elya its pronounced EEleah, a lot of people say it wrong but I think it's a beautiful and unique name. My mom named me after a song called Elya, by the band Silverwind. Elya means the light that flows from God, before my mom died she said to appreciate the name she gave me because she sees a light in my smile and I have a strong positive attitude that is contagious. I like to think she is right and I want to share that light, so I hope someone will see this and love the name as much as her, for your own new little light!
