aya = air (Lhaesine pronunciation = AH-yuh) (noun) (some things Google found for "aya": a very common term; a Japanese feminine first name, notably actress Aya Ueto and J-pop artist Aya Matsuura; Aya is a Female musical artist with 2004 album titled Strange Flower; AYA stands for Association of Yale Alumni; AYA stands for Academic Year in America which is a foreign exchange student program; an artist of neo-mandalas; AYA is The International Grumman American Pilots Association; aya food bar in Ireland; means "verse (as in the Koran)" in Arabic; AyA Kitchens and Baths of Canada; AYA Educational Institute for children of African descent; Aya Japanese Restaurant in Melbourne, Australia; AYA stands for African Youth Alliance; AYA is Association for Young Astrologers; AYA stands for Asian Youth Ambassadors; Villa Aya luxury villas in Bali, Indonesia; Aya Sofia (also Haghia Sophia) is an ancient Byzantine landmark in Istanbul; AYA is a private ISP in Syria; means "finance, income" in Hindi (Transliterated); means "where, whether" in Kurdish (Transliterated); means "cadaver, corpse" in Quechua; means "governess" in Spanish; means "paragraph" in Swahili; means "ask someone to come" in Tagalog; means "palm" in Turkish; places in Mali, Chad, Central African Republic, Spain, Philippines, Pakistan, Cyprus, Russian Federation, Japan, and Turkey)

My previous word for "air" was "axa". I think "aya" is more gentle sounding, and hence is a better word choice.
