I'll like to hear thoughts / feedback on the name Arya. Specifically concerning pronunciation. (Yes, we are Game of Thrones fans). My husband is pretty set on it but I think I'm pronoucing it wrong. I always thought they were saying it like the spelling Aria (which I like) and the more I look into it, it seems that is not actually how it should be pronounced. Is it acceptable to spell it with a y and pronounce it like the Italian word Aria (AHR-ee-ə) anyway?
Are there other spellings I should consider that will result in this pronunciation?
Ps…My husband is set on the name and does not care how it is pronounced, this seems to only be a problem for me when I discovered I had heard it wrong all along on the show! I might be able to convince him to spell it Aria if I can convince him it is important enough to me.
