When I first posted the trailer for “The Real World: Cancun,” I couldn’t help but notice that among all the drunken whoring and fighting was a person whose name is “Ayiiia.”  Yeah.  Three I’s.  Thankfully, in an interview with LAist, Ayiiia cleared up any confusion about her name.

You probably get this a lot but what’s the story behind your name?

I don’t know. I have no idea where it comes from. It sounds Hawaiian, right?  I just tell people it means “beautiful flower,” but I totally made that up.

Does she not have parents?  Was she left on someone’s doorstep as a baby with a Post-It on her forehead that said “Ayiiia”?  How do you end up with a name like that and not ever say, “Hey Mom and Dad, what the f-ck is up with my stupid name?”

Personally, I think she should tell people that it’s a variant of Aya the Third.  Like, her mom is Ayiia, and her daughter will be Ayiva.  You think Ayiiia got a raw deal, just wait thirty-five generations for Ayxxxviiia.
