- Comments and insights on the name Leia
I'm in love with this name! Leia is so pretty, it's classy but also fresh, familiar but unexpected, feminine but not princess-y, and all around perfect! Just keep in mind that the Star Wars association is very strong. If that bothers you, try a different spelling like Leiya, Laya, or Léa (although the last one will often be pronounced Lia/Leah) or a name like Aleia or Maleia.
