I think I have decided on 3 names I like for my little girl. When we meet her we will decide. Allot have told me how much they hate one of the names but I like it and am not going to let people change my mind. There is no name I like more. The names are Amity May, Alexa May and Amarlia May. I am not sure on how to spell Amarlia. Some have said the ar looks a little to harse )not exactly sure what that means). So I was wondering what do you think:
Amarlia (I think I like it this way best)
Amalia (think people will call her Amelia)

No idea what the correct spelling is but Amalia looks good. Hope that helps.
Also my dd (18 months) is Amity Isla-Ann. I LOVE the name Amity!

I would probably go with Amahlia so she doesnt get Amelia but honestly if you like the way you originally spelt it then go for it. I honestly dont see how it looks harsh but at the same time who cares if it does!

I have a friend called Amalia. I like this spelling and if people call her Amelia, you only need correct them once.
The other two spellings just look a little...bleh...to me.

I am a teacher and I see some strange names and strange spelling of names. I think Amalia is lovely and I think this version of spelling is the best.

I think Amarlia may be pronounced with more of an emphasis on the r sound. If you imagine an American saying "Amarrrrlia" so that the tongue rolls under rather than stays flat in the mouth (as with an ah sound). Kind of like the difference between how Americans say 'car' with the r as audible, vs how English/ Australians say it.
To me 'Amalia' is quite a gentle name, that can be said quite softly. 'Amarlia' requires different mouth movements that make it a little less soft - if that makes sense?!!

Do you think Amalia will get pronounced A-mal-ia?? I want it pronounced A-marli-a.
