Very beautiful. Although I like Natalya more for some reason, Natalia is still beautiful and more unique than Natalie.

I feel this name is extremely stunning although I'd personally not name my little one it. It seems a little bit far too extravagant and I would use Natalie as a substitute.

I've personally always liked the different versions of this name - Natasha, Natalia, Natalie, etc. It's just overall a very attractive name and has some cute nicknames like Nat, Lia, Allie, Tasha, etc. Just very pretty overall. :)

Personally, this name gives me bad memories. I was bullied by a girl named Natalia (she pronounced her name Na-Tar-Leah). So I can't say I like it.

I was named Natalia. I love my name, even if most people can't pronounce it properly. There's nothing bland or ordinary about Natalia.

Very pretty name. I'm not big on Natalie, but Natalia (or Natasha) sounds stronger and more exotic, mature, sophisticated, and elegant to me.

This is my name, but I spell it Natahlia. I have never seen or met another Natalia who spells it the same, but my mother swears in the baby book it was spelled with an "h" haha. I've gone by Tally my whole entire life, rarely anyone ever calls me Natahlia. It's beginning to grow on me though!

This is my little sister's name. Everyone in my family pronounces it "Nuh-tal-yuh" but her father pronounces it "Nuh-TALL-lee-uh." Both are correct, but I like the former one better. :) I think this is the best spelling out of any.

I think it's a very pretty name with multiple nicknames- Talia, Lia, Tally, etc..

It means "born on Christmas day," but almsot no one with this name is. XD

Although it's quite common, I've only met two other people with this name, but one spells it "Natalya" and one spells it "Natalja".

Natalia does not have to mean "born on Christmas". If you aren't Christian, and don't want that association you can use the alternative meaning of "natalis". Natalis is Latin for "birth".

Well, this is my name and as a kid I really hated it. It just sounded too complicated to me. And it was quite a unique name at the time I was born so I didn't meet any other girls with my name. But after some time I've really grown to love it. Now I wouldn't change it for anything. I also like that it's international and at the same time not too boring and overused. I think it's a beautiful and timeless name. :D

I love this name, probably because it's my name. =] A lot of times I get called Natalie at first. Annoying, but I've gotten used to it. Some people pronounce it two different ways - nah-TAH-lyah, the way it really is supposed to be pronounced, but most other people say it, nah-TAL-yah. I mostly go by Tali as a nickname, though. ^_^

Shouldn't it be the other way around? The entry for Natalie says it comes from the Late Latin name Natalia, so why is Natalia listed as a form of Natalie?

Natalia is such a beautiful name! I like Natalie, but I much prefer Natalia. There's a story bouncing around in my head, and one of the main character's name is Natalia. I picked that because of its beauty and how uncommon it is. I strongly recommend this name!

It is my name and I have grown up to love it. It just rolls out of the tongue, is rather feminine and international so I barely have to spell it for other people when I'm abroad. All in all, I think it's a good name both for a girl and a woman.

Since this is my name, I've heard it pronounced both with a funny accent in the middle a. I just like to have it pronounced how it looks. I usually get called Natalie when people first read my name. It can get pretty annoying, but I'm used to it.

I think this name is very beautiful although I would not name my child it. It seems a little too fancy and I would use Natalie instead. When I hear it I want to say it with an accent or something but I would not want to constantly talk like that when I say the name. Kinda weird, but just my opinion.
