    I like Asha, Amaya & Jaida best. Anaiya is another name I like as is Jaiya.

    Leni would be my least fave.

    Goodluck deciding.

    I like Allira.
    I know too many boys named Asher to think of it as a girls name.

    Absolutely love all of them, especially Amaya & Asha ... thought not a fan of Leni as it reminds me of the short version of Leonard

    My DD's has an usual name if you need another for your list Her name is Cendrine ... OR another - i know a little girl named Ashmita (of Indian origin) !!

    Allira is so pretty!!!

    I know of two Amaya's. Both pronounced uh-may-a. But it always makes be wonder if it should be pronounced uh-mye-a? I see a lot of people calling their girls Maya and pronouncing it may-a, but I would have thought to pronounce it like Myer. Just a thought.

    WILLOW!!!

    And no, it's not my name

    It's the name I wanted to give DD but it sounded terrible with our surname (all ran together) so I had to give it up. Well that and DH HATED it

    I LOVE ALLIRA!!! but i prefer the spelling Alira. its a gorgeous name, just rolls off your tongue.

    also i love AMAYA!!! ive never heard that but we had Maya picked out for all our girls but never actually chose it, when u say Amaya fast it sounds like Maya aswell.

    Amaya and Allira are defenately my fav.

    jaida is okay.. its not as pretty as the other two.

    i dont really like willow at all... but so many people are callin their kids that.
    theres 2 willows at my day care center!!

    i dont like leni at all...

    and asha is kind of cute... but i know 3 ashas already and theyre all boys!!!

    GOOD LUCK.......

    i like asha and willow
    Asha means hope in Sanskrit, and Willow just gives me a picture of a beautiful soft little girl

    i know a baby called jayda (might a common name now?) and my sil's cat's called lenny!
