When I was younger I hated my name because just as everyone else has said people don't say it properly...the one that really gets under my skin is anja-netty; REALLY❤️! I too go by Anjie, but regret that I started using the nickname as a child...I would much prefer Anjanette now :)

In the early 1982❤️s I was named after an Amelia who at the time was in her late 50❤️s. To me it was always a grandma name & I hated it. I know of 2 other girls that were named after her and I knew an Amelia at school when I was about 12. Other than that I never met another Amelia until ❤️everyone❤️ started naming their babies ❤️old fashioned❤️ names. I have always been called Amy. When'the name'started becoming popular someone asked if I was going to start going by Amelia. No. I still don't like the name. Someone was once so excited to tell me they named their baby Amelia ❤️just like❤️ me & being a little too honest, I said ❤️I'm sorry❤️. I don't hate it for othe's anymore, but I do hate when anyone calls me Amelia.

I was often'teased as amoeba or anemia stuff. I used to feel bad. But nevertheless I loved my name because it was unique n so so uncommon. My fren helped me actually understand my name better like It's pronunciation the meaning n stuffs. I like the fact that it is an uncommon name.

09/07/2023 11:38:38

My name is Amelia, and I really like it. Never had a problem with people pronouncing it or spelling it wrong - they usually ask how to spell it if they're not sure. I like that It's not super common, but It's also not weird. I think It's a really pretty name.

08/21/2023 00:51:08

My name is Amelia and People almost ALWAYS call me Amanda ... That, or they butcher the pronunciation since they never really hear it. i've had people pronounce it in various ways, the most annoying, perhaps, being "Ah-MUL-e-ah". Personally, It's always been frustrating when I was younger; I can never find things with my name on them, and perhaps this is just me, but it always made me feel strange or weird partially because no one else ever'shared my name and mine always sounded so different than everyone else's. Another thing was that when I was younger, there was no end to the jokes about me being stupid, because my name was Amelia- I share the name of a [not so smart] popular children's book character; "Amelia Bedelia." Part of the reason why I got so much ridicule for it could have been because I have a last name that'starts with "B" and that is similar to "Bedelia", but just the'same, I remember how much it bothered me as a child. The other thing is that as a kid, people used to assume I was strange because my name was "strange". It hasn't been until recently in High School when people actually started complimenting me on it, and giving me positive comments/compliments on it. However, now I don't mind it as much, and seeing as how i have rarely ever'seen another person with my same name, I kind of like it because it makes me feel more unique. =) That's just me though and my personal experience, so take from it what you will =)

07/24/2023 08:57:26

This is my daughters name. I absolutely loved it when I picked it out and it suits her to perfection. My mom also calls her Mia for short. I love this name!

07/18/2023 21:17:42

I am due Oct 1st with my 1st baby. Amelia seems like the perfect name for my upcoming arrival, it just sounds like everything I know she will be; strong, smart, beautiful, and feminine. It's not trendy, but not unheard of. Definitely the perfect name for my little one.

07/18/2023 12:11:04

I LOVE the name Amelia!!! It's soo unique, and im glad my name Isn't like Sarah or Elizabeth, because thats just too common. When i was little, my sister coudn't pronounce my name'so she called me Mia, and that is my nickname now. I love the name Mia, and my best friends call me Mia and my friends call me Amelia. And whenever i text people they call me Mia just because It's shorter lol! I am very happy, lound, fun to be with, and pretty much the person who starts the party. Haha maybe not but i know alot of people tell me they are always happy around me, which makes me happy!! i love the name Amelia

07/13/2023 02:17:08

Amelia is the best name in the world! I have a friend named Gabrielle and she is so jealous of my unreal name - she'said she wanted to change her name to Amelia!!!

06/14/2023 12:38:34

i've never been crazy about my name, but now that I'm a little older (16) It's starting to grow on me. My mother chose it because It'sounded Italian. Everyone tells me It's such a pretty name, and every time I tell people what my name is, they compliment me on it. My cousin likes to call me 'Mia' like from the Princess Diaries.

06/04/2023 21:03:30

It is a very pretty girly name , but its not really to my taste. I find it a little bit fussy sounding.My friends called their daughter this, so obviously love it. I think I'must be in the minority to not be as keen, maybe ill change my mind once ive heard it a bit more.

06/02/2023 14:23:42

My best friend has that name. I almost wish I was named that! DO NOT POST ANY BAD THINGS ABOUT THIS NAME OR I WILL FIND U AND EAT U ALIVE!!!

05/31/2023 02:08:52

My name is Amelia and I'm 15 years old. My mom got my name off a headstone in a cemetary when she was taking a walk there. When I was in Elementry kids would call me "Amelia Bedelia" which for a while made me hate it. I usually go by Mae because when I was learning how to talk it was to hard for me to say so I would call myself Mae and It'stuck. Over all I would say Amelia is an okay name. Just don't call them 'Milly' or 'Leah'. I hate that...

05/10/2023 13:35:24

I have a daughter with this name and think it is so proper and lady like. We call her "Mia" for short a lot of the time, but outside of the house she is always Amelia. I think it is so sweet!

04/22/2023 09:09:54

Aliens abducted my brain, so "I" was on Proxima Centauri 'bout 8 years ago for 'bout two weeks. "I" enjoyed the premier of the interstellar broadcast of "Am❤️lie" as it arrived on the'screens there. I'm still touched, and I think It's because I like french music and I'm a human, and not, like the centauries, a centaurian. Best regards and EHLO H

03/28/2023 13:44:46

My Granddaughter is called Amelia Lee, Lee being the name of her 'Uncle' who died as a baby. People are always commenting on how nice it is and have even copied it for their children. She gets called Millie by a lot of people which is also cute but I always use Amelia as I think it is the most beautiful name. I was taught by a Nun who was called Sister Amelia and she was lovely, I'mentioned this to my daughter and that's how she came to consider the name when she was pregnant., We all love it.

02/21/2023 02:56:16

It appears the name is on the rise; I am an Amelia and I go by Amelia, but lately I have heard of Amelias going as Amy or Mia, or even Mel. And people pronounce It'so many different ways, from the two-syllable "Meel-ya" to the 4-syllable "Uh-mee-lee-ya"

02/13/2023 21:32:36

My name is Amelia and I love it. I always get compliments about how pretty it is, and I love that not many people are called it, but it is still a known and traditional name. Most people call me Emelia rather than Amelia, even if they know how it is spelt, i am not sure why! People often leave of the first 'a' so i get melia a lot, as well as millie and meals (never mia or minnie). It has got more popular as the years have gone, and i hear a lot of little girls being called Amelia and its soo cute! If my parents had known about the name Ameliý when i was born they would have called me that.

01/28/2023 17:01:20

My Daughter's name is Amelia Rose. Everywhere we go people ask her name and when we tell them, they always say how beautiful her name is! We've talked about using the nick name Mia, but have always called her Amelia. We have had some people call her "Amelia Bedelia" and I find it annoying. Hopefully she won't have to deal with too much of that once she'starts school!

01/28/2023 01:44:24

01/21/2023 10:44:46

My eldest daughter is called Amelia. She is now 2 years old and calls he'self 'MeeMee'. We are Brits living in a Spanish speaking country and the name is popular in both English and Spanish, a truly international name. However, it is pronounced A-mel-ia in Spanish, rather than A-mee-lia, but MeeMee works in both languages. People of all nationalities tell me how lovely the name is, and she really suits it too.

12/24/2022 13:51:18

12/23/2022 09:38:30

My best friend is called Amelia (or MeMe as I call her) she has black hair and light brown eyes and its a very beautiful name for a beautiful girl. She often gets mistaken for 'Emily' or 'Emma-Leigh' but that could be because she's shy and quiet. We both have never met another Amelia which is a shame because its such a pretty name

09/11/2022 13:16:08

I don't like the name in my opinion and It's my stepdaughters name and she hates It'so prefers to be called Emmie. Spelled that way.

07/25/2022 04:14:06

It is my daughter's name and everyone in the family loves it. The only downside is that It's popularity has increased so much over the last three years. My husband and I didn't want something that wasn't too popular, but we loved the name'so much that we didn't really care.

07/24/2022 04:26:42

Not common.I have seen very few AMELIAS.Though not very sure of its meaning I loved it and gave the name to my daughter to rhyme with the first letters of her'sister's name,AMANDA.

K Omgosh all of you are going to hate me but I too have the name Amelia and was named after my grandmother that passed and I do love my grams but not so much the name... wait before you all get mad.... I just found it to sound boring or old and my personality is so lively and out going that I just seemed to think it wasn't matching... ( the name and personality) but yes I always received compliments especially my boyfriend lolz my nicknames growing up was melz, Moe, Mimi, Emilio lolz, even MeLi which is the name I use most still to this day and at work but everyone says they love my original name "Amelia" I'm loud and laughs VERY loud and friendly... I'm also a lil too honest at times but means well oh and critical =/ but loves life to the fullest too... again... so sorry to all you Amelia's if I offended you... and lolz I too was teased about Amelia badelia. I'must admit though when I hear a character on a movie named Amelia does make me so freaking happy n I do brag lolz so maybe I secretly do kinda like it... lolz ;)

03/27/2022 22:06:54

My name is Amelia and I have always loved it. I called my daughter Emily as the origin of both our names comes from the'same name but the only problem is, everyone gets our names mixed up.

02/11/2022 12:08:24

my daughter is Amelia wasnt till my dad researched our family tree after'she was born that we found aunties on both sides called amelia!!

01/08/2022 23:51:18

My name is Amelia and I love it! I named my triplet daughters "Amy" "Emily" "Mia" because they are nicknames for the name "Amelia". Everyone is aways getting all four of us(Not just the triplets) confused so I now go by four names "Amelia" "Amy" "Emily" and "Mia". I love the name Amelia!

12/29/2021 11:18:54

My name is Amelia, and I love it. I only know a few people with my name, and I get compliments all the time on how pretty It'sounds. The one thing I don't like about it is that there are not many nicknames that go along with it.

12/07/2021 10:26:42

It makes me proud that I was named after my great grandmother and godmother Amelia. My parents named me Amelia Maurine. My family calls me Mimi. I also got teased with the character, "Amelia Bedelia" but that was grade school. Friends in my past always pronounced my name as Emily or Amanda or misspelled it, but I corrected them. Hadn't met another Amelia until the other day at the library. I'm glad the name is making a comeback in the younger generation. The name'stands out from the other names and people always comment about Amelia Earhart when'they first meet me. I love it.

12/07/2021 06:47:06

im called amelia but i get called mimi or mims as my cousin couldnt pronounce the name people say i am very cute and the name is lovely, but i am VERY loud! xxxx

12/02/2021 05:05:24

11/17/2021 13:43:48

My daughter's name is Amelia. She is named in part for one of her grandmothe's whose middle name was Amelia, and in part because we think it is a beautiful name. Like othe's, she has been called Amanda and Emily a lot; however, as Amelia is becoming more popular, she doesn't get her name mispronounced too much any more. Her nickname is Millie and my pet name for her is Milz. She likes Millie, but will only let me call her Milz because she considers Milz to be a special name meant just for us.

11/11/2021 02:10:48

Our daughter's name is Amelia, and we call her Mia. We also considered Ami as a nickname (ohm-i), but think Mia is funkier. Amelia is a beautiful name, and Amelia Earhart is a great role model.

10/01/2021 18:06:36

My daughter is named Amelia Lilyann. Still love both names 12 years later! We usually use her full name, but if using a nickname: Mimi, Mim or Meals. When she was little, her'sister could not pronounce, so "Ya-Ya" was what she (& we) called her. People often leave of the "A" so "me-lia" is said. Her Nana calls her "Millie". Poor girl, beautiful real name, so many variations used! She is always glad to be able to find her name on products though, unlike her'sister Nadia! :)

08/30/2021 14:45:54

My name is Charlotte. I have a little sister named Amelia. We call her Emmy.
