Note: This name rhymes with Malaria!

Beautiful and sophisticated.

It's very surprising to see this name rising in popularity so quickly! I wonder why it's becoming so popular in the US. Valeria is also a Russian name whose standard nickname is Lera (Le-ra with a soft l' sound and e as in pet).

I LOVE THIS NAME! I first heard the name from the actress Valeria Golino who I think is so sexy. I got mixed reviews though from the people that I told that I like it. This woman who was originally from the Ukraine that I used to work with I told her I like that name and she couldn't believe it! She thought that the name was just as beautiful as I did! Which made me happy. But I told my Auntie and she said it sound like a malaria or some disease. I planned on naming my daughter Valeria Damaris, I adore it but I am afraid my little girl would get picked on. =(

My name is Valeria and I live in the Netherlands. I used to wish my parents had called me something more conventional, but now I am very satisfied with my name. I find it original and very feminine. So don't worry about your kid being picked on, it's unlikely that will happen.

It could be a short form of "Valeriana".

Sorry, but this name sounds like a disease.
-- mum2bubba  9/1/2007
As pretty as it looks, it sounds a lot like malaria to me.
-- Lizdebiz  10/30/2007
I would like it better if it was pronounced val-RAY-uh.

I prefer this name to the overused and rather ditzy-sounding Valerie. This is much prettier. I don't believe this word is supposed to be prounounced like 'malaria'. In other languages than English, this certainly isn't pronounced much like it. But come on, ''muh-LA-ree-uh'' as opposed to ''vu-LEE-ree-uh''? Sure, there's a similarity, but at least not halfway through.

Sorry, but to me, this name sounds very pretentious and "ditzy" - like a none-too-bright, pretty, poor-little-rich-girl type. Plus it rhymes with "malaria" - how could you possibly go through life with a name that reminds people of a disease?!

Valeria is pronounced vah-LEH-ryah not bah-LE-ryah. Some may mispronounce it, but it is still read vah-LEH-ryah. There is no 'b' present.

This name reminds me a lot of the word malaria.

I met a girl one time who had this name, she was Peruvian, and she pronounced it va-LE-RI-uh, with a Spanish R.

Very unusual and quite interesting. :)

Great name. As it sounds like diarrhea.
-- Liesl  10/7/2010
Valeria is a wonderful name in my opinion. It might be because (I thank my mother) named me Valeria. It is in fact pronounced vah-LEH-ryah or vah-LAY-ryah NOT bah-LE-ryah.
It's a wonderful unique name to name a child. And very proper for a adult. I will assure you a child will not be made fun of.
-- Valeria_Noel Ed  12/17/2010
It sounds too similar to malaria.

My name is Valeria. I think having a "different" name has helped to make me a better person. I have found it interesting growing up. Some people seem close minded and some seem open minded, even to someone's name. Also, people often "correct" my name, so I have learned patience. I have been fortunate to travel the world so I am a more open minded American. I think it is a STRONG yet FEMININE women's name and I am PROUD of my name.

Personally, I am absolutely appalled at all of the people bashing the name for mere coincidental phonetic similarities to a disease. How utterly terrible. Both to the supporters of such and the bearers of the name. Constantly associating this name with such things will depress both you, and the people who happen to have the name and so have to deal with hearing such associations. I suppose it can't be helped for people who simply have an instant instinctual connection to it upon hearing the name, but I would please advise any such people to keep it to themselves. I know that I, for one, did not have such a reaction, and I would venture to say that there are many out there who feel the same. In case no one actually looked at the popularity and ratings, go do so to see my point. I myself, actually associate the first part of it (Val) with many splendid words such as valid, valuable, valour, valley, and various others. To be sure, there are indeed other names which begin with "Val" and there are indeed other words which with that beginning, but is there anything wrong with associating something with positivity for once? I think such practise should be more common, at any rate. Perhaps those with objections, need to relax a bit, and stop searching for ways in which they can depress both themselves and those around them whom they object to the mere name of. Though I suppose, many did not have to search to find it, and that it occurred to them naturally. But if this is the case, might they please keep such an opinion silent in the hopes that others might not make the same connection (as they are certainly more likely to do so if they read about someone else who did)? All that blathering about it will accomplish is to give those who bear the name reasons to be saddened about it, as I am quite certain that those who have decided upon naming their child by it will most likely not be dissuaded from such petty remarks, especially if they have many other, more well founded reasons for choosing the name. I think it's a beautiful name, and it has a pleasant sound. A beautiful nickname for it (one which it shares with the name "Valentine") is "Val." Such a nickname goes along with my aforementioned positive associations. The purpose of this passage was merely to express my personal beliefs on the matter. If I have managed to offend anyone in doing so, I sincerely apologize. Thank you for your time.

It just reminds me of valerian root. Not that that's bad, I just wouldn't use it.
