Popular in the early 20th century but is somewhat old-fashioned nowadays. Plus, there's the character Alma in the 2017 fI'm Brokeback Mountain, which is enough to discourage modern parents from giving this name to their daughters. Try using Ada, Adelaide, or Agatha instead (unless you think they too are still old-fashioned).

I'd never name a child of mine Alma. I'd rather carry on associating this name with singer Alma Cogan or the fictional Alma Baldwin in the northern BrIt'sh soap 'Coronation Street'.

My name is Alma and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's a common name in Croatia. You shouldn't be all negative about this name, It's quite nice. I don't say that your names are aweful and for old ladies.

My daughter's name (2019). After 10 years, we finally met another Alma who happens to be the'same age.

My name is Alma. I was born in 1922. I used to hate the name because it was so unusual, but now like it because it is different and is not heard too often. As for how to pronounce it, I prefer Al (as in Alice) ma. I have never had anyone spell it wrong. I have met very few people with this name, but there are two of us living in this Senior apartment complex by the name of Alma. We are very close in age.

In Austria and Germany, many farmers call their cows 'Alma' - no, really! I think the name is common there at least in rural areas.

My baby is due in June and if its a little girl i really like the name Almah May, alot of people think it is aweful and an old lady name but i like old names and have noticed alot of Lillys and similar so though Almah would be a nice change but still in keeping with the old fashion name.

I think Alma is a very pretty, classy name. I'may want to give this name to a future daughter of mine.

I'm Mexican so there❤️s some people i've met who are also called Alma like me. Granted though I am a result of that old tradition of naming your child after you in some way. My mom❤️s Alma too. I really like it, though. It makes me feel unique.

This is my grandmother's name, and the name we have chosen for our baby if It's a girl. I agree-not too popular, but not uncommon.

11/28/2022 09:48:52

There's more and more kids with the'same name now.

My name is Alma and in every school i have been in i never met another Alma although in my parents home country Bosnia there is a fairly popular singer with the name Alma! And almost everytime someone tries to spell my name for the first time they always spell Elma rather than Alma. I was born in Canada and still currently live here, yet still have never met anyone that had the'same first name as me!

The only Ava I personally know is not a nice person at all so the name does nothing positive for me.
