Lovely,I like the way it sounds and the meaning posted here. I also like the fact that it's not too long or hard to spell or pronounce. I wouldn't be surprized if it made the top ten list in the future.

Common name among elementary school girls where I live.
I know 2-year-old twins named Aliyah (a-LEE-ah) and Amiyah (a-MY-ah). I always want to pronounce it a-MEE-ah because they are spelled so similarly. It can be confusing, especially as they're twins!
