Native origin meaning ‘beauty’

Unisex name

Pronounced similar to “Kay-yah” or K-yah

( not like the actress from maze runner or skins, that’s more the western pronunciation)

Ps. Will probably spend majority of their school life and work life correcting teacher’s and people’s pronunciation, and will probably give up and decide to go by a nickname or the their middle name
Person: so Kayla…..
Kaya: um it’s actually pronounced kaya
Person: isn’t that what I said

Kaya: no you said Kayla, it pronounced ‘kay-yah’
Person: Kaiya?

Kaya: you know what just call me k or by my middle name grace

...Wake up and turn I loose
For the rain is falling

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now

For the rain is falling

I'm so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighbourhood
