It is a beautiful name! This is my name, is special, I love it!
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.
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.
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.
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..
Gloria is a beautiful name...it 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.
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.
I think the name Gloria is nice , It's lovely but more of the 40's
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:)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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... ❤
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.
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!
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.
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. ☺️
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.
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!
my mom's name is gloria. i think it is very nice. i have not met another gloria before.
Awful name. Associated with pride, greed, warfare etc.. War is not glorious it is glorified (negative word) Also too close to "gloat" for me.
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
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...
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.
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
my daughter is a Gloria Elyse and I think it has a nice ring!
