I like this spelling the best. A good sibling name choice is Vivian

Ali, Ila and Lia are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.

Lia is an awesome nickname for any girl's name containing 'lia'.

I much prefer Lia over Leah. Leah looks ugly asf. ^_^

Personal experiences with the name Lia: | Edit

I love this spelling! My daughter's name is Lia Kate, which we weren't sure about it first, but love it now. Lia is three weeks old.

Growing up, my best friend's name was Lia. I would consider naming a girl after her.

I changed my name from Lisa to Lia to sound younger 10 years ago. I now know 3 people who have named their baby this (and not as a shortened nickname, but Lia as the given name). This name is hot!
