Pretty and quite unique in English-speaking countries. I like this pronounced an-TON-ya rather than an-TOE-nee-a; I just find it easier to say that way.
Simple, elegant, feminine, just a beautiful name, Antonia. Feels great!
Reminds me of a very gracious woman.

A beautiful, sophisticated name. I could possibly be naming a daughter this.
I love this name! I’m considering this name for a character or child for definite.
Anne or Annie are good nicknames.
My name is Antonia and my friends all call me Toto.
I used to really hate my name, I thought it was too clunky and had a stuck-up feel to it, but lately I've grown to appreciate it more! I think it has a very melodic sound and rhythm to it, and a nice meaning overall!
Antonia is in my top 5.
I really like Antonia for a name. It has a very strong yet beautifully romantic feel to it. The meaning “priceless” is gorgeous, as well. Also, I think Toni/Tony are really good nickname potentials. It gives it a more tomboyish feel, but is still feminine, too. I think Antonia is a wonderful name.

God bless you.

Antonia sounds so classy, elegant, and mature! It makes me imagine a beautiful, mysterious woman with long, wavy black hair and dark eyes. Antonia does sound a bit grown-up for a kid or teenager, but that's fine since that's only a minority of her lifetime, unlike with juvenile names. Toni is nice as a nickname, although it may get misspelled Tony. To me, Toni sounds fitting on someone who is extroverted, bubbly, and girly. All in all, it's a wonderful name.
My friend is named Antonia and she goes by Toni.
Am called Mary Antonia Ritah and out of all my names I love Antonia most because its unique first of all, I've never had a namesake called Antonia in all the schools I've been to so far until this year I met one girl by the same name, I receive a lot of compliments about my name because people think its really beautiful but the worst part is I am now nicknamed Tony and some call me Anty and it just pisses me off. Otherwise, it's a good name save for the ridiculous nicknames attached to it.
Also Galician: --- "A forma feminina é Antona ou Antonia"
Marie Antoinette's name was originally Maria Antonia. Her full name was Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna.
A classy but strong name with great history. I find it beautiful and my favorite combination is Antonia Charlotte. I personally don't like the Toni nickname but open to it if my future child likes it. Who knows, it might fit them. I personally am not into nicknames if the name's good enough then nicknames shouldn't be a concern. All that matters is if the whole name is pleasing and Toni isn't that big of a deal breaker for me.

Antonia is a lovely name. Toni would make an adorable nickname. I hate the nickname Ant.
I used to hold this name in high regard. It is a sophisticated, classic name with a rich history. But then someone misspelled it one day as ATONIA, which essentially means "a muscle that has lost its strength." That association really altered the way I saw this name. =(

Means priceless.
This is such a beautiful name! I wish I could succeed in selling this name to my husband. It sounds beautiful, strong and capable, like a city woman turned pioneer.
It's a nice enough name, but I can't stand the nicknames Toni and Tonia. The former sounds like the name of many jerks, and the latter just sounds a bit trashy and harsh. Also, I think this name only really suits women with dark hair and brown eyes. I still associate the name with that dimwitted character on MADTV with the name Antonia.
Yes it does mean "priceless".

Antonia is the feminine form of Antonius, but it should be noted that it derives from the family name, not a male given name. Roman women were generally assigned the feminized version of the family name. Thus, Marcus Antonius had two daughters, Antonia Major and Antonia Minor. Likewise for other names -- Julia, etc.
About the Roman naming of daughters... Aside from naming daughters Antonia Major and Antonia Minor, Romans might number them (ie: Antonia Prima, Antonia Secunda, Antonia Tertia...)
