My name is Freja (j is pronounced with a y sound” and I’m trying to figure out the best way to render my name in Katakana because I’ve seen it a few different ways while searching. They include:
フレア
フレーア
フレヤ
フレーヤ
フライヤ
I figured it was worth getting feedback and see what others think. Thank you.

Perhaps you could upload an audio sample of you saying it. I would vote for the elongated sound. If the Y sound is distinct use フレーヤ, if not use フレーア.

I can’t upload a sample now but that’s good advice. I think I could get away with フレーア

I like the sound of フレーア。I don't know if it's just me but フレーヤ sounds like "flare".
