"My name is Valeria and it always gets pronounced wrong, I think it is because I have a Spanish name...... Oh well" Mar. 9, 2018:
"I've always liked my name (Valeria ofc) I do get called valerie and other pronunciations but honestly why would you hate on such a beautiful name? Sure people have called me MALERIA but why not take it as a joke and say some not-very-funny remarks? Haha I dont like it when people hate on my name but just know that you can't control people!
P.s it sounds so feminine, petite, cute etc." Jun. 22, 2015:
"I am so in love with the name Valeria. Although, I did receive some negative feedback on it, at first. Like my mother saying that it sounds like Malaria, "but it's beautiful"...Then why make a disease comment? Just say it's beautiful. Thanks to that, I thought up a couple alternatives, Valaria(Vuh-l-Aria)and even Valerys(Vuh-lare-ris), which are both lovely..But I keep coming back to Valeria....I guess, with a name like Darian, I'm not one to choose Britney or Stacey when it comes to baby names."

"My name is VALERIA too, and I LOVE IT!!!
I am from Sao Paulo-Brazil, a HUGE city w/an equally huge number of inhabitants, but somehow,when I was growing up (70's and 80's)everywhere I went, I was the only Valeria around, so it made me feel funny sometimes....
That was before I started to travel/read books/educate myself/and learn about how very beautiful my name is, the originality of it and how strong it is, it's root going back all the way to the Roman Empire, and as far as I know, all VALERIAS that I met/meet (not a big number anywhere, thank God),are beautiful, interesting and strong enough to carry this name w/pride and a smile when spelling it over and over again to small minded people that insists on calling us Valerie, Val, Malaria and so forth, ONLY because it makes it easier for them!How very sad and what a pity, but as my very special, strong and loving italian grandmother whose name was also very Special (Maria Eugenia), used to say, be YOURSELF and PROUD ALWAYS, the rest will follow........that's exactly what I do ever since, I was about 10, 11 then, and I am now, a very COOL 49 year old New Yorker for the last 25 years of my life!!!"

"My sister's name is Valeria...She was named after Valeria in The movie Conan the Barbarian...She's the blonde warrior that dies when a snake in the form of an arrow is shot at her. Very strong name" Jul. 30, 2009:

"I have only met one person with that name when I was in college.
People ALWAYS pronounce it wrong. They almost always love it when I give them the correct pronounciation, they love the "flow" and sound of the name.
It's funny that after I give the correct pronounciation they tell me what they feel the orgin of the name is: Italian, Spanish, and or French.
I love the name, it was my Grandmother's and it's as beautiful and strong as she was, in and out." Sep. 16, 2005:

"I was named "Lera" after a girl my Mother went to school with. I have spent 60 years spelling my name. I am glad Mother only knew her friends nickname. I feel sorry for a child who must explain her name for the rest of her life." Jun. 29, 2008:

"It's a beautiful name!! I saw a comment here on how to pronounce the name in Italian language: the right pronunciation is Va-LEH-ri-ah.
"Valeria - malaria" joke it's possible only because English have acquired an Italian word and mispronounced it: the right pronunciation is mah-LAH-ri-ah.
It has happened in XVI-XVII century, from the original "malo aria" "mal'aria" and today as in the past, it literally means "bad air".
So, your name, as originally intended, it doesn't rhyme with "bad air"." Feb. 19, 2019:
"Hi my name is Valeria and I LOVE my name. Who cares if it rhymes with Maleria it is the most AWESOME name EVER!" Sep. 27, 2016:

"My name is Valeria, and I really like it! I think it's different and awesome. But, all my friends and family speak spanish so they don't have ANY problem with sayng it. I have an aunt that speaks english and I would like her to call me "val" or other english nickname, becouse I really like Val. What do you guys say? Do you have other nicknames (not vale or lera) :)" Dec. 28, 2014:
"I am 54 years old and my name Is Valeria. I absolutely hate it! My entire family, cousins, aunts, uncles always made negative comments and the kids in school were even worse. I wish my name was Mary or Ed or Fred!" Dec. 12, 2014:
"Well Valeria is my name and honestly i dont like it. I always get called Valerie or Val-er-e-uh. Also if someone gets annoyed with me they call me malaria which makes me feel like its the worst name in the history of names. And i also hate it that people always spell it Valaria which makes it look even more like Malaria. And one more thing is that a couple peoe call me Val which i find as an excuse to not have to say my whole name." Jul. 5, 2014:
"My name is VALERIA. When in school there wre 2 other girls by the same name. One older and one younger. I get Valerie and Valera a lot. Val is fine with me, but prefer the full name of Valeria.

"hi :) i'm valeria of myspace.com/valeria and i randomly came across this page and felt "the power" lol to say something. Here goes... If you live in an english speaking country, maybe you should consider naming your baby girl something else. If you go ahead with it anyway, expect her to be a little bit crazy, a little bit tough and a little bit rebellious.. maybe i'm dramatizing, but that's what years and years of "Malaria??" does to you xxxxxx Sorry if i've offended anyone <3" May. 6, 2009:

"My name. I Love it, but i HATE the nickname Val. I have no idea why, but it completely REPELS me. Do you guys pronounce it with an accent on the e, more like va-LE-ria
than like va-le-RI-a?
It's latin but is used in many different languages.
Lera is the nickname for it in Russian. It's cute and short and catches your attention ;)" Feb. 13, 2007:
