I named my daughter Noemy and I pronounce it No-emmy and we are Spanish. Many people pronounce it na-o-mi.

It is also used in Greece, written (Νωεμη) in Greek and modern form of Noemin.

When I first saw this name in print, I confused it with the name Naomi. When I realized the difference between these two names, I began to like the name Noemi. It is pretty, but not very common.

Personally I like the name even though sometimes I'll say my name is not Noemi, but I know it's a biblical name from the book of Ruth. People have called me Naomi, Wyomy, Nomi and my most recent... it has even been spelled "NOHEMI"and I think that's pretty but I like to correct people's pronunciation----it's NO-E-MI (longe) simple, unique and famous. I say famous because you'll find it in the oldest book of all times "THE BIBLE"

According to Pronouncenames.com, Noemi sounds like "No-amy"

Not a huge fan. Plus it reminds me a lot of "Naomi" which I never cared for. (Similar in look).

Nice. I prefer Naomi though. But then, I'm not Polish, or Slovak, or Czech, or whatever else it said. :P

Noemi is the Italian form of (possibly) Hebrew No'omiy, meaning, "My Delight, My Pleasantness."

Oh, by the way, my mom sometimes calls me 'Emi' (Pronounced: Eh-me I think lol), one of my friends used to call me 'Nomy'/'Nomi' (Both pronounced: Noh-me). But now almost everybody calls me 'Nemy', which I think it's a sort of 'English-ed' version of my name. ^^ Sometimes I'd like to remember them what my real name is!

'Noemi' is a Biblical character. When she lost her husband and her sons, she changed her name to 'Mara' (from the Hebraic 'Marah' meaning 'unhappy, sad', opposed to 'Noemi' which means 'joy, happiness').

I'm Italian and here in Italy this name is given often, so it's not so rare hearing of some girl named Noemi.

The English pronunciation of Noemi should be: No-ae-me (or No-eh-me)

I don't know famous people bearing this name, but I love it (also because it's my name!), it reminds me of happiness but determination. I don't know, but I like it. >o

Come on people, this is not a Czech name. A couple of French weirdos naming their baby Yubuti-cuchuliuti doesn't make Yubuti-cuchuliuti a French name. (Just an example, no offence intended. Any similarity to persons living or dead is purely coincidental :))

It's the Czech version of the name. "Official", used in the ecumenical translation of the Bible and listed in that handbook by Miroslava Knappová, Jak se bude jmenovat, as a name that was allowed for use during communism (with the variant "Noema" - now that's a name I haven't seen in use yet. I do know a Noemi personally, and I do know of several other Noemis.)
Jan's not a Czech name either (originating in Hebrew, just like Noemi), yet it's one of the most commonly used ones in the Czech Republic. Just because this one isn't doesn't mean it's not rooted in the language. Look at the comments that claim it should be spelled differently. That proves it's a version of the original name that evolved over time into something specific for the areas where it's in use.

Forgive me for repeating myself, but this is SO not a Czech name it's ridiculous.

Definitely not of Czech origin (which I hope is obvious) and it's only borne by 490 residents of the Czech Republic, therefore less frequent than "curiosity" names such as Jessica or Jelena. I do wonder where did you get the idea that it was a Czech name in the first place?

To HanaB - From that point of view, EVERY name in the world would be a Czech name (and a Finnish name, and a Chinese name, and an Egyptian name...). Jan is the Czech form of an originally Hebrew name. It's been one of the most frequently used names in the Czech lands for centuries. These two facts combined are what makes Jan a Czech name, as opposed to Noemi. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Personally, the spelling of this name is dumb. It should be "Noami", or if the name is Naomi, with the A and O switched, and the parents are too dumb to know the difference, it should be spelled "Naomi".

Well, bringing names into foreign nations often changes them for a reason. I don't know why has it turned into Noemi in Czech either, but I like this version a lot.

Pronounced NAW-e-mi (in Czech).

One of my favourite names. Not so common in the Czech Republic (and probably anywhere), but quite frequently used among Czech protestants, I believe - it's sort of a typical Czech protestant name. (Which doesn't mean common, just typical.)

I think that Noemi is a very pretty name but isn't it used in Italian, Spanish, AND Portuguese? I was just wondering.

My sister is named Noemi, pronounced, No-eh-mee. She is 18 and her name is very unique where we live. She is the only one we have ever met in person. We nicknamed her Nomi. Our mother always pronounces it.

In French it is pronounced no-eh-mi. In Spanish and Italian it is pronounced no-ey-mi.

My personal impresion about the name NOEMI is really good because my name is NOEMI and everybody likes my name. I know that in the world there are a few Noemi's and nowdays this name is not so popular as before. My advice to all Noemi's in the world is that we can be all happy because our name is the most beautiful I have ever heard.
