  • "I love this name and think it is beautiful and exotic no matter how it's pronounced. I am wondering if anyone prefers it to be pronounced as Zee-uh-mara? I live in American and would like to use this pronunciation, even tho I have a puerto rican background. I am trying to decide between the original Xiomara spelling or using Xiamara instead so that people will pronounce it the way I'd prefer. However I do love the meanings of Xiomara..but I would also like the nickname Xia (Zee-uh). Thoughts??" May. 3, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "LIke many have said, my name is Xiomara, I am PuertoRican and I was named by my father after the Cuban singer Xiomara Alfaro. I am currently 30 years old living in Pennsylvania and as many others, how my name has been perceived by others over the years has changed drastically. In my childhood in Puerto Rico, there were no problems. It is easily pronounced in Spanish. However, I didn't know any other Xiomaras. When we moved to Pennsylvania, I spent most of the time teaching others how to say it, and although some did say my name was 'different', I don't recall ever being teased about it. As I've gotten older, I also hear more often that my name is pretty, different, and exotic. To this day, there isn't another Xiomara in my immediate circle of friends and colleagues, although my husband's cousin's name is also Xiomara and since I took his last name, the two of us are named exactly the same, which is so cool considering I havent met too many Xiomaras in my lifetime! Overall, I love the name. I have a strong character and I think its meaning fits my personality very well. I pronounce it C-O-mara and although I have friends who call me 'Z', Xio, or X, I like most how my family and closest friends call me- Xiomy." Feb. 3, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Xiomara. Correct way is See-o-ma-ra. The rule in Spanish grammar of the letter X next to a vowel is pronounced with S sound applies. I am also Pamamian, my name has been since I was a girl and still is mispronunced by Americans. No matter how many times I explain people just dont get it. I hate when people introduce me and I say my name, the new person always says huh and the person I know always try to help by saying it again. But they always say it wrong. I love my name had it for 46 yrs & I always stand apart. Growing up I wish for a plain name but I grew to appreciate it. That Giomar orgin is not right, why arent any Germans or Eurpoeans named Xiomara. Generally Only Latinas are Xiomaras unless some non Latina liked it and named thier child that. In 46 yrs I can count the number of Xiomaras I met on one hand all of were Puerto Ricans. My American math teacher in the 1980's who spent time in Latin America told me it was a title of Mayan princesses originally it was Chiomara but evolved to Xiomara. A title like cleopatra&d caesar. This makes more sense sinc Xiomara is epopular in Central America. Where the Mayans reigned." Nov. 5, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "Ever since childhood being named Xiomara has been a bit of a nuisance. Nobody could (can) ever find a mug or a key-ring or a fridge magnet with my name on and I avidly recall teachers staring blankly at my name in the register, stammering "Exomaria, Exomaria?" and replying for the 78th time that day, "It's See-o-maara actually". My name is unique but I don't love it all that much. It's not a particularly pretty name but its different, which I like." Jun. 8, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Greetings. I named my daughter Xiomara six years ago, BUT in a different way. I replaced the X,I, and O with Z and Y. So it's Zymara. It was the spur of the moment because I was told I was gonna have a baby boy, and out she came. It sounded quite attractive when I first heard it coming from my inlaws then. I was trying to pronounce myself, so I got crafty and disected the original. Nevertheless, today, she is as beautiful as her name." Jun. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my name and everyone, everywhere say it and spell it wrong. At times I wished I had a different name, because who wants a battle everytime thier name is said aloud, introductions, but I LOVE my name. It's great, the only thing is the meaning, it's unclear. I was told long ago that my name was not a name but a title of Mayan princesses like Cleopara, Casear,Pharaoh" Feb. 16, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name for it's exotic uniqueness and I enjoy it. I have the nickname of Zee because nobody could say my name correctly. I like using my nickname too because not all are worthy of knowing my BEAUTIFUL name. In the Spanish language the 'X' is usually pronounced as an 'S'. Although in English the 'X' is pronounced like a 'Z'. I love the difference between both languages because it's like an alias within itself. Lovely." Apr. 27, 2006: Report as inappropriate
