"I am named Amalia, and I love it. However, some teachers take a little bit of practice to get it right (especially if they only speak English). Every once in a while, there is a teacher that gets it right for the first time, to which I am mildly pleasantly surprised.
I am often accidentally called Amelia. I understand the nickname Molly. One of my cousins was too young to know how to pronounce my name, and he has called me Molly ever since.
Of what I know, there are two different pronunciations: ah-mall-E-ah or uh-mall-E-uh. Sometimes, someone
To the person who wrote the negative comment: Is English your first language? Amelia means Industrious, which is good.
But my parents named me Amalia because we speak Spanish, and that meaning would be "God's Work", which is definitely what we, as humans, are. It also means that in Hebrew, more so than in Spanish. So maybe consider different languages, different meanings, different reasons, or people other than yourself before you insult thousands of people around the world." Apr. 14, 2020:

"My Swedish great-grandmother was named Amelia but she pronounced it "Amalia." She went by the nickname Malie (pronounced Molly).
I named my daughter after her and also adopted the nickname. Some people do mispronounce Malie with a long "a" but her full name has not been a problem. Malie is cute for a childhood name but Amalia will translate well into adulthood when my daughter is a grown woman." Nov. 28, 2007:
