Spelling this name?

I love the name Vada (just like from the movie My Girl) but I’m not fond of the spelling. I don’t think people would be able to pronounce it properly, it looks like it’s pronounced Vad-duh. Are there any other suggestions one could propose? I also don’t like the spelling ‘Veda’. I really like the spelling ‘Vayda’ but haven’t gotten any positive feedback.

    Vada - upon seeing this name I would pronounce it as vay-da

    Vayda is a reasonable spelling

    It you want to make sure people pronounce it correctly go with Vayda.  I would never pronounce Vada any way but vay-da, though.

    Veda, Veyda, Vayda… all acceptable options.

    In English, when vowels are separated by a consonant, the first vowel is a long vowel - Vada is Vay-dah.

    You can add the /y/ if you want, Vayda, but Vada is fine.

    I like the name.
