I like this name, but I would pronounce it mel-ah-NEE-ah. Just like how it's spelled instead of mel-ahn-yah.

I think I prefer this to the English form Melanie. I know several Melania's here in Brazil. Unfortunately, in English-speaking countries most people will immediately associate this name with Donald Trump's wife. (Nothing against Trump's wife; I can't stand Trump himself.)

In the United States this name has almost become synonymous with Melania Trump, wife of presidential candidate Donald Trump - especially now, as it's election season (when will it END?!?!). I'm not exactly a huge fan of Melania Trump, but there have certainly been worse women in the public eye.

That aside, I do think Melania is a lovely name - and I'm not normally crazy about names that begin with "Mel-" (don't like Melanie or Melissa).
