An anonymous person asked what Taeya means on a previous post. I looked her name up before she was born to find out the same thing myself. It's not in many of the baby books (at least not spelled the same way). However, based on what people have posted on baby name websites here's what I found. It seems to stem from either an Alaskan/Eskimo or Japanese origin. In Japanese it is said to mean beauty and intelligence. In Alaskan it means affectionate one. Again, this is what individual people posted on a website and is not "official" from a baby name book.
