Comments for NATALIE:

A mum gives the name 'Natalie' to a child she really thinks will be beautiful. 'Natalie' has got to be with beauty. That child turns out ugly if their last name is ugly, and if the last name is samething beautiful, it turns out beautiful.
-- Nataliana  1/12/2005
Nataliana, that has to be the biggest piece of bull doodoo I've ever heard. Natalie is just a beautiful name, and if someone who is named this is ugly it has nothing to do with their last name! They're just ugly. Bad genes. Case closed. Finito. But anyway, this name is very pretty and I love it.

Natalie is a great name. I count my luck stars every time someone asks me my name that I can tell them it's Natalie.
-- natalie11181  8/3/2005
I've had the name for 25 years and I've never heard anyone pronouncing it NAD-a-lee unless they have the flu. But then I get called Nat most of the time so maybe I just haven't noticed...
-- tilly  8/17/2005
I think NAD-a-lee is a Canadian accent. Natalie is my name, and when I came to Canada a few years ago, I noticed how they pronounce the t as d, and that happens to other words too. Now I pronounce my name that way too.

I love my name being Natalie. I always think that my parents must have thought me to be elegant and gave me a gorgeous and elegant name like this one. I recommend this name to any parents who have a baby who is as gorgeous and elegant as the name Natalie.

Natalie Cole, daughter of jazz and pop musician Nat King Cole, is one famous bearer of this name. Her father was a contemporary of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Natalie Cole has followed in her father's footsteps and also sings.

This is my name, and I really don't like it. This is mainly because everyone automatically calls me Nat, which I hate, and which isn't even a girls' name. I usually go by other nicknames with my friends, that are slightly linked, like Nutalie, Peanutalie, Slutalie etc. Don't ask!

My name is Natalie and I love it. It is a great name and through polls on this website, so do many others. This name is a greatly coveted name, I think.

I love having the name Natalie. I agree with everyone on here that says it's a beautiful, elegant name. when I'm talking to myself, I call myself Natatalie because it's fun to say it like that.

I'm sorry, but the only way I would name my daughter Natalie is if she was born on Christmas Day. How boring of a meaning is that? It's too popular anyway, I wish people would actually look up the name before they name their kid that.

One of my all time favorite names. It is pretty, elegant, not overly used. I love it.

I was going to be named this after my great-grandmother, but I was named Lauren instead. I like it, and would name my kid that. There are two Natalie's in my grade, one is mean and the other is spelled Nathalie (still pronounced the same), and very hyper. it still won't affect me, though.

Whenever I hear this name it makes me think of a princess, maybe because it's my name and I consider myself a princess.

I think Natalie is a lovely name. The meaning of this name, I think is special. Christmas Day is a time of year when people get together and have good times, my family try and make this a very special day. I remeber the magic of Christmas when I look at the meaning of my name. I think all Natalie's have some thing magic about them or at least the ones I have met.

This is a very pretty name. Growing up, I was the only girl in my classes named Natalie and I loved it. Many younger girls are now named this but it is still less common than some names and still has an elegant feel to it.
-- glassmidnight  10/1/2006
The French spell the name Natalie as "Nathalie". The 'h' is silent but makes the 't' sharp, making the French pronunciation nat-a-LEE.
-- glassmidnight  10/1/2006
I don't know of any Natalies in my boys' classes at school. I have yet to meet one. I love this name. As for the meaning of the name, born on Christmas, what they are talking about is the word natale (spelling?) which is birth. So for those who think this name meaning is boring think again, birth is a beautiful awesome experience and so is this name.

I love my first name Natalie! I thank my parents for giving it to me. It is the name I use when I introduce myself even though growing up I was called by my middle name at home. I especially like that it is not popular in my age group (in my 40s!) and that it does not lend itself to a nickname.
-- Anonymous User  11/25/2006
I love my name Natalie (pronounced Nat-a-lee NEVER Nad-a-lee!) and I am born on Christmas Day! This is why my parents named me Natalie as I was going to be Katrina. I have met very few other Natalies in the world and am the only one that is actually born on the day it means.
-- NZ Natalie  11/29/2006
I would definitely use this name for a female baby born on Christmas; Natalie Christine or something of that sort.
-- wordybookworm  12/25/2006
My twin sisters Natalia and Noelle were born on Christmas day so my mum named them to remember their birthday. It didn't help at all everybody always forgot and no one could ever come to their birthday parties. Now Noelle says her birthday is June 25 and Natalia says her birthday is December 21.

Natalie is a really pretty name, and it has an elegant sort of feeling when you say it, like Emily. It's getting popular, and I can see why.

A famous bearer of this name is Natalie MacMaster, a well-known Cape Breton fiddler and Irish step dancer from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. She is married to Donnell Leahy, who, along with his brothers and sisters, form the Celtic music band Leahy.

Personally, I think the name Natalie is a very nice name. I know a little girl who was born last Christmas Eve and is called Natalie Lynn, which is cute.

-- Belle  3/8/2007
This name is popular but not annoyingly so. That makes me like it. I actually like it a lot better than Natalia but the meaning came as a sort of surprise. As I learn more and more about this name, I guessed it was French from the way it was spelled and only just got time to check. Oh, and I live in the Sates and none of the four girls I've met with this name pronounce it NAD-a-lee. It's NAT-a-LEE.

My sister is named Natalie. I really like the name even though I think it is a really beautiful name for my sister. But still is a nice name.

This is a cute name!
-- Stella_Hearts  4/8/2007
I'm a Natalie, and personally I think it's a pretty name. It's not at all trendy or ornate or ridiculous, which is nice. It does seem a tad overused these days, though it isn't as frequently given as "Lauren" or "Jennifer". I sort of wish less people had it, but what can you do? The funny thing I've discovered about Natalie is that little kids (at least the ones I know) cannot pronounce it for the life of them. It's either Nad-er-lee or Mad-a-lee, which I think is hilarious. :)
-- Anonymous User  4/30/2007
My sister's name is Natalie, I think it's really pretty. We're Canadian so it's usually pronouced nad-a-lee, nat-a-lee is what she gets if someone is really focusing on saying her name. Like reading it or something. Someone above said something about the spelling is French but actually, the French way is spelt nathalie, with no pronouciation on the h. I know this because we're half French, so her name was almost spelt like that.

This is my name! I like it, although the funny thing is I wasn't born around Christmas time; I was born in August.
-- ICEyun  8/6/2007
True, Natalie (and Natalia) have become associated with "Christmas Day" through the Italian, natale domini, however, the original Latin word, natalis, was derived from the word, nasci, which meant "to be born." We all have a natal (or birth) day so I see nothing wrong with using this name any day of the year. Natalie is a beautiful name though I slightly prefer Natalia.

Natalie McDonald is a character mentioned in the Harry Potter series. The author, JK Rowling, named this character after a Canadian girl who was very sick, loved the books, and wrote to JK. In return, JK wrote back and told her a few secrets of the books to come. Sadly, Natalie had died before the letter arrived. In Goblet of Fire, JK sorted the character Natalie into Gryffindor as a tribute.

Come on, do you have to be that rude? A name has nothing to do with someone's personality. My name is Natalie and I'm crazy, loud and talk too much. And I know another Natalie who is the quietest person I've ever met. Names have nothing to do with personality. Ok I'm done ranting or whatever.

This is a very feminine and beautiful name that does remind me of a princess. It's a really adorable name and I agree that the nickname Nat is pretty masculine, that's why I would shorten it to Talie or Tally.

I've always been frustrated about the meaning of my name as I was born in June (the opposite of Christmas Day), but sometimes I joke that it explains my random personality.
-- nadi61  4/5/2008
I really like the name Natalie. It's one of my favorites. I love Christmas and it means Christmas. I don't like it when it's shortened to Nat. People have a tendency to shorten names, so that takes away from this name as a name of choice.

-- Ailis  11/6/2009
I'm 14, and I know almost no other Natalies.
In my family, we've always pronounced it nat-uh-lee, but with no special emphasis on the 'T'. Therefore, it could easily be mistaken for a 'd', especially if you mumble. (And I live in southern California, so it can't be uniquely Canadian.) And, I, personally, love my name.

My name is Natalie, named after Nat King Cole's daughter, Natalie Cole. Since I live in a Spanish family, most of my family pronounces my name "Na-ta-lee-a" because it's kind of difficult to say "Na-ta-lee" in Spanish without not putting an emphasis on the "lee" as "lee-a" as the Spanish language does for feminine names.

I think Natalie is a wonderful name. It is becoming more popular, which makes me sad. :(
I don't think you need to be born on Christmas Day to have this name, not very many people actually pay attention to the meaning of a name before they name their child. It is a beautiful name for any girl. (:
Most people pronounce my name with a "d" sound instead of "t" because where I live in Indiana, we talk really fast and it always comes out sounding like "Nadalie" instead of "Natalie".
-- Anonymous User  7/27/2011
In Massachusetts we talk fast too, so Natalie comes out as Nadalie. Well, maybe it's just I talk too fast, because when I try to say Natalie, it just takes too long. :) Anyway, although this name is common where I live, I still find it pretty.

Merry Christmas! Today is Christmas Day, this name means "Christmas Day," and the name of the day is Nicholas! I think this name is cute except Natalie from MONK was a bit of a ditz. Usually I prefer names ending in -a because -ie makes it seem kind of nickname-y. However, this is one of those few names that sounds youthful yet ages well.

This pronunciation guide seems a bit perverse in saying that Natalie is pronounced "NAD-ə-lee" in English. A "t" is a "t", even if it sounds more like a "d" when coming out of an American mouth.

My sister-in-law is named Natalie. Ironically, she was born November 24, exactly a month before Christmas! Despite its popularity, I've only known two Natalie's, one being my sister-in-law, and one being a friend of my grandmother's I met about fifteen years ago who was at least sixty. I can't help but think this name is absolutely adorable, there's just something about it that's so likable. Too bad it's gotten so popular, though.
-- Isabel Price  8/12/2013
Isn't it weird how this name is popular among Israeli Jews (such as Natalie Portman) when the meaning has to do with a Christian holiday? The reason for this is that it was a traditional name among many immigrants from French and Russian speaking countries who brought this name to Israel. It also sounds good in the Hebrew language: sort of a mix between the modern Hebrew names Natan and Tali.
-- Tiger Lilly  10/21/2013
Czech form is Natali.
-- Samantha Carter  11/11/2013
Natalie is my name, and I don't like it very much, to be honest. I don't really have a specific reason -- I just... don't care for it.

It is a lot better than both Natalia and Natasha, both of which I think are ugly names.

No one has ever called me "Nat" besides my first grade teacher. Most people just go with Naty, if they use a nickname at all.

I should also add that, while this name is common, I haven't met anyone else in real life with this name besides a girl in my art class. The two of us are completely different. It's a little weird to think we have the same name.

Oh, and about the pronunciation: I'm not sure if it's nat-a-lee or nad-a-lee. I guess most people just say it with a really soft, quick t, so it sounds like a d. (I live in America, if that helps.) Everyone I've ever met says it like that.

I am 32 and my name is Natalie Elena. I've always gotten compliments on both my first and my middle name - I think my mom chose a great name and it fits me well... I am olive skinned, light brown hair, with hazel eyes, pretty, and sweet ;) The name does seem to be growing in popularity these days - but in 32 years, I've really only known 3 other Natalies my age. Thanks Mom!

My nickname growing up was Nat the Brat - but didn't care so much, this was mostly only from my older brother.

My little sister's name is Natalie and her middle name is Grace, which is very pretty together. Natalie is a very pretty name, and I have only known a few in my life. I don't like the nickname Nat though, and my sister doesn't either. It's not very common to me, and I really think if you want to name your child that, do it!
