"My name is Alma and I am male. I'm named after prophets that lived on this continent long ago. So, it is a religious name that I hold dear to me. I do get strange looks when people are not familiar with its background. But that has become normal for me." Feb. 28, 2017:
"My son is named Alma, he is named after his Great Grandfather who was also named Alma. I think that it is a great Pioneer name. It stands for strength. It is also the name of Ancient Prophets that lived on the American continent. We like it, except for the few times people think that it is a female name." Jul. 20, 2005:

"This is such an old lady name and I mean old lady name! Why on EARTH did some parents from a century ago use this name for their sons instead of their daughters? The majority of Almas in America - and in England too - are female but in granny age." Apr. 27, 2008:
