How would you pronounce this name?

We named our daughter Alayna. Pronounced uh-lay-nuh. We never thought about it being pronounced any other way until someone pronounced it uh-lie-nuh. When I started thinking about it more, I thought about the name Maya and how it is pronounced. Now I am starting to wonder if I should have spelled it differently.
