11/23/2023 13:58:06

My name is Glory, not short for Gloria...simply Glory. My mother was in the Navy and named me after the flag. As a young girl I didn't like having a different name; but as I'matured; I love my name and appreciate why I was given my name. I have only met one "Glory" and one "Gloria" during my lifetime. I also appreciate it when people take the time to call me by my name, Glory and not Gloria. To me; It's like calling me Susie or Betty if you call me Gloria. Thanks for asking. :)

11/19/2023 20:19:56

I am 56 years old and only recently began to like my name which is Gloria. Apparently, It's a downright sexy name in 2020. I did not like the name growing up because it had three syllables and most girls my age had two, like Carol, Carla, Sherri, Tammy etc. My name'seemed a chore. Add to that my last name had three syllables also. The teacher calling roll would say "Jack May" and then my.cumberson name. It didn't roll well. In fifth grade, there was a mean girl who sang "Glory Glory Hallelujah!" whenever'she'saw me until I pushed her to the floor. Her name was Sharon--another two syllable name. Finally, I don't mind the name. I thought about changing it but could not possibly disrespect my mom that way. Funny thing is we used to tease my sister about her old-fasioned name, Abigail. Well, the joke was on us. We're tripping over little Abigails but still no flourish of Glorias. Sigh.

11/13/2023 00:02:54

I'm 13 years old and I love my name.A lot of my friends call me glory

11/10/2023 06:13:02

My name is also gloria. I am now a teenager, and have tried to change my name many times. I went through very many nicknames. The most common I was called "glo worm". In 6th grade I got people to call me Gineva or Ginny. I was teased horribly for my "old lady name." now being A young adult I have been called a lot of names. My friend had called me globeia. She'said it was because I was smart. I now am called Ria or Loria. I am still called Ginny or Gineva often. I like Gineva better because people though Ginny sounded like guinea. So I was called guinea pig. I havE learned to like the name. Gloria is a very nice name.

11/08/2023 01:54:18

my moter name is gloria i love her dealy and my great-grandmother name is gloria i never met her but i heard great things about her lol

11/05/2023 05:43:22

It's an old lady's name, and It's awkward. That combination of consonants and vowels has a harsh sound and doesn't roll of the tongue gracefully. Are you expecting a baby girl and thinking fondly of great-great-grandmother Gloria❤️ Stop.

10/29/2023 14:26:06

This is my name, and I just love it, I get called "Sabrina the Witch" alot, haha, that can get old fast, but I just love my name, It's pretty, and alot of my friends like it too!:)

10/19/2023 08:27:00

I love my name as it fits me perfectly. I was a gift from God 40 years ago to my parents and never will I forsake my name. Oh i've been'teased and people have called me Lori, Glory or so on I even have friends that call me Glo or G. I don't mind as long as I know who I am and where I came from it is no one else's concern whether or not they like my name.

10/13/2023 09:54:50

I too am a Gloria. I used to hate it, insisted that i be called Lisa instead. Now that I'm in my twenties and out of the'sandbox, i've come to love my name. It's feminine, traditional, commands respect, and I rarely have to spell it out to other people... Unlike a lot of modern names. I love it.

10/11/2023 23:31:44

Great name, Gloria reminds me of the famous song "Gloria" by the late Laura Branigan

10/09/2023 13:20:20

Anybody who doesn't like being named Gloria should change it and stop complaining. It's a beautiful name applied to beautiful people.

07/28/2023 09:21:10

I love this name,partly because I am named Gloria. It's special,unique, and different in a good way. It is a very graceful and elegant name.The name itself sounds so posh. I am glad to be named Gloria.

06/15/2023 00:06:16

My name is gloria,so yea.....we are amazing kind of people,,we are blessed,and i love my name because it brings so much meaning to my blessed to be called gloria

06/08/2023 06:10:18

I am also named Gloria, and I love it! It makes a connection with my classmate, Mia, because her dog's name is Glory. It reminds me of her dog all the time, and we also became friends. It also refers to me being an angel since I took many personality tests and It'said that I was an angel. My church gym teacher was also named Gloria! My cousin showed me that.

06/06/2023 03:37:22

For reasons unknown to me, people often call me Barbara instead of Gloria. My name is Gloria Jean and many people have called me Barbara Jean or Gloria Ann. Don't understand the correlation at all.

05/20/2023 03:24:40

It is a beautiful name! This is my name, is special, I love it!

05/17/2023 19:34:20

My name is Gloria and I love it. It's unique and my friends do their best to think up nicknames that no-one else have. I have 7 to date. I love It's meaning, and though I'm often'teased for It'sounding like an old woman's name, I also get as many compliments on it and its meaning. After all, It's the person that makes the name, and right now, I'm rocking Gloria.

04/10/2023 22:40:22

this is my daughters name, and in the uk it is not overly popular anymore. I think it is a lovely old fashioned name and in my opinion the old names are usually the best.

04/04/2023 03:51:30

It's always pronounced perfectly by everyone including foreigners. I grew up in the'sixties and seventies and I liked it because it was not that common. There was only one other Gloria in High school. It wasn't so unusual that it was weird, but not the people had to say Gloria A or whatever like a lot of names.

03/29/2023 22:57:20

It's hilarious that one commenter'said the name Gloria is harsh and doesn't rolll off the tongue! If that's the case, why are there so many songs with the name Gloria in them❤️! (Look it up on iTunes; there are more than you think). It's actually very lyrical and beautiful. It's true that many see it as an "old lady" name, but to me, I think that makes it classic. I named my now-4-year-old daughter after my Grandmother Gloria and I'm so happy with that choice. We tend to call her Glo, Glo-bug, or G, and some call her GiGi, but I also like Glory as a nickname. We get some many compliments on her name and she loves it, too..

03/21/2023 15:59:34

Gloria is a beautiful is not ugly and not a "Latina" name...I have never been'teased for my name and I love the many nicknames that people have given me...Globug, Glo, even Glow, Glory, Gloworm, GoGo (little kids), G, G-Lo, and several other'sweet names that only start with G, such as Georgie and Georgie Porgie...People tell me how pretty it is and hardly anyone forgets it. i've even been'told "That's a special name" and my name has been sung to me since before kindergarten. I'm always surprised when I hear a version that is new to me...It is a lovely name and I'm always sad to hear other people named Gloria put it down...I can understand maybe for people who were named Gloria in the '50's because I suppose it was like my generation's Brittany...still, I am named for my Great Aunt and I know that'she also loves the name.

02/18/2023 05:52:26

My parents stuck this name on me, and I always hated it. Growing up, I was constantly teased about my ugly, old-lady's name. I found a good solution as a teenager, however, when I shortened it to "Lori" and had it changed legally. Life's much better as Lori; I no longer cringe whenever I hear or have to say my own name. "Gloria" seems to have become a popular name for Latina babies. As far as I'm concerned, that community can keep it.

02/13/2023 11:15:26

I think the name Gloria is nice , It's lovely but more of the 40's

01/21/2023 14:34:00

I love my name, I was named after my grandmother which makes me think of It'sometimes as an 'old-lady-name', but no-one has ever made fun of it. I have never met any one with the'same name as me, which is definatly nice. I have been given so many nickneams! Glo, GLo-bug, Glo-worm, G-girl(my parents call me that), G.G., G, even gloglo! I think its fun:)

01/14/2023 21:13:18

I named my daughter Gloria. She is now 6. She is blue eyed, blonde with curls. Yes, many feel It's old lady, but we are bringing it back! I think It's timeless, beautiful, unique but familiar. We mostly call her Gloria and Glo...I kind of wish we called her Gia too! Might have to sneak it in!

01/06/2023 09:33:24

I'm lucky to have been named Gloria. It's unusual and meaningful. I'm often called Glory by some but especially by my siblings. Wish I had suggested that my granddaughter had been named Glory Ann.

12/14/2022 01:41:54

My name is Gloria and I didn't really mind the name when I was younger. I joke around all the time that I will change it to something else, because of its association with an older generation, but it is who I am. Plus It's nice not having to be referred to as Gloria H. which is the case with many other common (read: boring) names like Sara.

11/16/2022 06:34:14

My name is so unique that in my class I was the only one bearing that name,indeed your name actually speaks for you, wherever I go,am always the best.some said Maybe It's my name that is making me be above othe's now they call me glorious child,thank you my parents for giving me the name.

11/14/2022 18:07:42

I'm 12 and my name is Gloria. I have used nicknames like those posted by Gloria (lol) on July 21. I like the name kinda, for It'sounds very actressy.

11/13/2022 09:30:24

Gloria is such a nice name. Whoever has their name as Gloria should be proud of the'selves and make every effort to live such a glorious life not pressed by peers.

11/02/2022 14:17:48

I love my name, many people have complimented it, yes there were the dumb song singing in high school but there was a guy I liked a lot who would sing Tozzi's song to me and that is enough for me to cheer up every time anyone sings It to me... ❤

11/01/2022 18:36:22

My name is Gloria. Though I hate it, even in my early twenties, I find it very annoying that I always had people singing to me the Hymn Glory Glory or calling me different nicknames such as Glow, G G, and Glor. I prefer to be call by Rhia ever'since in high school. What awesome is that I get the name "Rihanna" (an R&B; singer) name by some people and reword my name like Glorihanna. I figured it is very che'sy name. Lol. Whether I like my real name, I think it is okay.

10/13/2022 22:36:18

My daughter's name is Glory which is short form of Gloria. She gets many compliments on her name and I have only met 1 other with this name. I can not imagine her with any other name. The meaning of Glory is "splendor of heaven". How much more beautiful can'that be!

10/06/2022 08:23:38

It's an awful, ugly name that my parents stuck on me at birth. I was constantly teased by schoolmates, and adults would tell me, outright, that'such a dreadful name was a poor fit for a cute, young girl. I cringed and blushed, from head to toe, every time someone called me by my name. As a teenager, I shortened to Lori. When I became 18 and an adult, I went to probate court and made it official. (I love the name Lori.) My life improved about 500% with that change.

09/28/2022 00:32:58

My mother (born 1926) was named Gloria. She married my father in 1947, and he decided to become an Episcopal priest in 1971❤️so she had the perfect name for a minister's wife! As a little child, I loved singing the chorus to ❤️Angels We Have Heard on High❤️ and thought my mama must be famous to have a Christmas Carol about her. ☺️

09/14/2022 09:44:42

They are lovely and fun to be with. Moreso, they put in thier best in whatsoever they set out to do.Thou I like the name but I will not want to name my daugther amy.It is to common.

08/13/2022 06:39:00

I was born in 1965, when'this name was really popular. My parents said they named me that because they liked the name. However, I have always hated it. My older brothe's always called me, "Glor," which I disliked. One friend in high school called me, "Glo," which I tolerated. i've only known one other Gloria, a classmate in junior high school, but i've heard of quite a few othe's. My husband calls me, "Glory," a lot, and I like that a lot more. When I was in grade school, I tried to get othe's to call me, "Chris," short for Christine (my middle name), but it didn't catch on. i've always associated my name with words like garbage, glop, glue, gloop, glob, gory, goop, etc. (notice the beginning sounds). Maybe someday I will learn to like my name, but right now I still dislike it. Maybe I have personality issues!

07/09/2022 04:51:00

my mom's name is gloria. i think it is very nice. i have not met another gloria before.

04/22/2022 13:54:36

Awful name. Associated with pride, greed, warfare etc.. War is not glorious it is glorified (negative word) Also too close to "gloat" for me.

03/21/2022 10:33:54

im from spain and my name is gloria and here is a really popular name,i heard that in the usa its a really old-lady name,but here it is not at all,anyway,in spain gloria is really related with religion,and I'met like 5 persons with this name

11/25/2021 11:08:06

As a white girl named Gloria growing up in Southern California during the 60s and 70s it was confusing to me why the only other girls named Gloria were Hispanic. According to my mother, who grew up in Wisconsin during the 30's and 40's, all the girls she knew named Gloria were of Swedish or Finnish descent. Demographics. As an adult I have met many women named Gloria from various ethnic backgrounds. So many people I'meet tell me their mother's name is Gloria, which is funny to me. When I was in grade school in the 60s I used to wish I had a more popular name like most of the other girls my age, like Kathy, Denise, Diane, Lisa, Cindy, etc., but I never really disliked my name, although it did feel like a heavy name for a little girl. When Van Morrison came out with "Gloria" I thought it was a coup for the name! People are always coming up with nicknames for me... Glow, Glor, G, Glori, Go, Glow-Butt, Glorious, Jelloria, or they sing it from one of the many Gloria songs (why are there so many❤️❤️). A lot of people call me G-L-O-R-I-A, spelling it out like the Van Morrison song. "Hi, G-L-O-R-I-A." My little grandchildren started calling me Gigi, (short for Grandma Gloria), and it has stuck, so now mostly everyone calls me Gigi. I'miss being a Gloria...

11/21/2021 08:18:54

My little granddaughter is named Gloria because her parents wanted a name for her that would celebrate their Christianity. She actually looks like a Gloria with her lovely features, brown eyes and wavy, dark brown hair. All the teache's in her'school seem to like her and remember her name, as there are very few, if any, other children named Gloria. She is a very sweet, happy child.

09/12/2021 18:26:24

I'm 57 and only ever met 1 other Gloria (back in elementary school) until moving into my condo a year ago. There are 4 women named Gloria and 1 named Glory here and i've since met a 5th Gloria

08/23/2021 15:19:12

my daughter is a Gloria Elyse and I think it has a nice ring!
