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. =(

I named my daughter Antonia Renee, and she is 18 now. I think it is a beautiful name. She gets compliments all the time on how beautiful her name is.

Antonia is such a gorgeous name. The only thing I hate is the possible nickname Tony, I would use either Annie or Nia.

This name sounds kinda snobby ann toneeee ia! I'd imagine someone with this name to be stuck up and self obsessed but you can't tell a personality from a name I suppose. :)

This is a lovely name, and I like it for several reasons, but mostly because one of my favorite books is "My Antonia" by Willa Cather.

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".

In the BOOK Practical Magic (as opposed to the movie, where they changed it) Antonia Owens was the older daughter of Sally. She had red hair, was very beautiful, always wore black, and was something of a prima donna. She was also much more of a character in the book than in the movie.

Ántonia was the main character in Willa Cather's book My Ántonia - it's pronounced, in this case, AHN-to-nee-ah. I prefer this pronunciation to the regular.

Antonia was the name of the main female character in Willa Cather's famous novel "My Antonia." I think it's a stunning and strong underused classic.

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...)
