Liya (Liyaa’ actually) means a land far from water. Liya is also a type of bean that is very white, and when it is said about a woman “she is like liya” it means she has very white skin. Liya is also a valley in at-Ta’if, a city near Makkah in Saudi Arabia.
Liya is not mentioned in the Quran, neither directly or by root. But since the meaning is acceptable, inshAllah you can use it to name your baby.
Liya is pronounced as (LI)p + (YA)rd.
