"Hey I'm another Paloma! Every time I meet someone new I say my name and then they ask to repeat myself about four times. I do that and they still don't know how to say my name. It gets annoying after awhile. How hard is it to say my name! It's PA-LO-MA." May. 21, 2010:

"my names also Paloma, and I?ve only met one person with my name and i was so shocked because my little first grade self thought I was the only paloma. I used to hat my name and I still kind of do but I like it because it?s unique another problem with my name is when I tell people my name there like how do you spell it and I?m like ?exactly how it sounds? because it?s literally how it sounds PA-LO-MA."

"My name is Paloma and at first I hares my name since a lot of people didn't know how to pronounce it or spell it. I usually have to repeat my name when I'm introducing myself which can get pretty annoying. I've only met one other Paloma and she had a pretty bad reputation in my school. Although I used to hare name with a passion I think over time I grew to like because it's unique." Jul. 6, 2014:
"At first, I didn't like my name. I wanted to have one like everyone else. But then again, who wants to be like everyone else? Having a name that is that unique is something to live up to. Embrace it wholeheartedly and noone will ever forget who you are!!" Aug. 11, 2009:
"I never met anybody named Paloma, but I heard of Paloma Parkway, a street in Phoenix. I feel its a pretty name for a parkway! Paloma also sounds like a garden of palm trees. The name Paloma is also similar to another female name, Palma. Palma can be short for Paloma, if you want a short form. I would also like it if there was a park called Paloma state park! Paloma is very unique!" Jun. 28, 2009:
"Paloma is my favorite Spanish female name. I never heard somebody say the name Paloma wrong. I don't really know anybody buy the name Paloma, but I heard of Paloma Piccaso, which is the daughter of Pablo Paicaso which was a painter. The name Paloma makes me think of Scenery along a parkway. I don't know why, but I feel that way." Jun. 25, 2009:
"Hi there, another Paloma here. My mum is from Madrid, Spain and it's a really popular name over there. I've been living in London and NYC though so they find it fascinating for some reason. I like it, but I wanted to ask: do you guys have any kind of shortname for Paloma? I heard Palo but found it awful.. love." Jan. 4, 2009:
