If you want to pronounce it Lay-uh, i’d go with different spelling. Everybody will pronounce it Lee-uh. How about Lea or Leya? I prefer Leya, and think it is very pretty.

In the Bible the two sisters are Rachel and Leah, pronounced Lay-uh

Yeah, I got Leah from the bible, and I love lay-uh but don’t really like lee-uh and I am not so fond of other spellings lika Leya...Do you think it would be too confusing?

Once people get to know her, they will learn she pronounces it Lay-uh...she’ll introduce herself anyway, so its not a big deal...

If your going to use (lay-uh) I’d spell it Laia or Leyah- but i personally would go for Molly- Its gorgeous, will age well, and flow well with your last name

While that is true about Rachel and Leah, I’m pretty sure that nobody enforces the Leah (Lay-uh) pronunciation, and it is very easy to confuse.

My choice would be Mollie you have a middle name?

I think so too! I love Molly. Can you help me with middle name suggestions for all three? I’m still undecided!
