"Best name ever. I gave it to my daughter and she gave it to her daughter. It's a very powerful name that one has to grow into. It's a name that comes with responsibly." Apr. 23, 2020:
"Love it! It's so beautiful and graceful! Priceless and unique! Who wouldn't like this name? SHUT UP if u r hating on it because it's beautiful, unlike all the other names" May. 30, 2017:
"My sister is called Antonia and I really like it because we both have not very popular names. There is a four year difference between us and i always wonder why we were called our names.
Nobody mistakes my sisters name probably because i live in the UK" Apr. 1, 2017:
"Some people call me Antonio but usually people recognise my name. My friends call me Anty usually" Nov. 25, 2016:
"My names is Antonia and I am happy to be one. I am European and no one there has a problem saying it right and would never mistake it for Antonio. I do have to correct people here in the US sometimes, but I don't care. Also, the way it's pronounced (in my case anyway) is Uhn-toni-a, not Anne-toniya, but like I said, I am European and I prefer it that way." Nov. 26, 2010:
"people say antonio, and it gets me really mad. maybe i over react, but i hate it. its antonia, people. with an "a" at the end. i dont see how its that hard but, maybe because im used to it." Apr. 11, 2010:
"My name is also Antonia. I too go by Toni, after my grandpa Tony. I have never "known" anyone with my name. Most people do not pronounce my name wrong. They usually don't even attempt it. Although many people, even relatives who have known me all my life spell Toni with a y. I AM NOT A BOY!! Yeesh!! I love my name though. It's not ordinary!!" Jan. 8, 2010:
"I love my name. With the first and middle it is Antonia Sorell, which I think is a fantastic-sounding name. I usually go by Toni, and use Antonia with clients. I feel usually like I'm saving it so it doesn't get worn out, or like four syllables is just too long for regular conversation. Most people say my name is beautiful. I get a few people who like to call me Antoinette for the fun of it. With the nickname Toni, I got teased on the playground for having a boy's name, which made me rather incensed, and I'd usually yell back that it is spelled with an "i" and that they didn't know what they with talking about. I like Toni, too. It feels rather playful, like me. The only real issue I have in having the name Antonia is that I get called Antonio A LOT. Even in writing. Which is ridiculous. They call me Antonio to my face, which usually makes me despise the person (OBVIOUSLY a boy's name with an "o"!), because they usually say it like a big old know-it-all. It tells me that they don't pay enough attention to detail--I can't have that in any business relationship.
No one has my exact name that I've ever found--even online. My last name is mildly outlandish, especially with the name Antonia. People always mispronounce that, too, so my whole name is usually spoken worng. I think I might freak right out if I ever found someone that shared my exact name.
My mother named me Antonia becuase it seemed to fit me as a baby and because it is a family name (last Antonia was my great-great grandmother, who was apparently a wonderful person. Have a great uncle named Antonio.)." Oct. 19, 2008:
"I go by Toni too, and people ALWAYS swear it's pronounced like the book, well, it's not ;o) But I love my name, I love knowing it means priceless ;)" Aug. 29, 2007:

"I do not know anyone with the name "Antonia". I, too, have been called "Antonio", and people do not mind when I explain that is the masculine form of the name. I think it is a beautiful name, and unique." Aug. 23, 2019:
"I have had people call me Antonio before. In 3rd Grade (that's year 4 for british people) My teacher called me Antonio for the entire years. I don't mind the name. I don't know. My closest friends and my whole family call me Toni instead. I wish they called me 'Annie' or 'Nia' or something more girly though" Jan. 28, 2019:
"My name in Antonia and I've never in my entire 14 years of living met another Antonia, it kinda blows my mind." Jul. 13, 2017:
"This is my name too. I don't particularly mind it though I used to hate it when I was younger because people used to call me Antonio by mistake. They also called me Tony to annoy me, and I've even had someone call me anti-bacteria once, though that time I didn't mind. When I'm online I often go by Toni with an i, which I like because it's a girl's nickname and when people call me that it's not to make fun of me. Combined with my foreign surname people can often have difficulty spelling my name so I have to spell it out for them. My name is Antonia because I am named after St. Anthony and my mum loves the name (she is brazilian, it's a lot more common over there)." Apr. 10, 2017:
"My name is ANTONIA, I'm past 60, and all my life, even to the present day, I'm called ANTONIO, which I find reprehensible. In my youth, my name was not common at all, I only knew 2 other Antonia's, and they both used Antoinette instead. I can see 50-60 years ago that it would be pronounced by stupid people as ANTONIO, but today, although not common, it's heard a bit more often Nicole Kidman's sister is named Antonia, Tony Bennett has a daughter named Antonia, there's Lady Antonia Fraser... I HATED my name while growing up because of its constant mispronouncing. I've learned to live with it, but I still have bad memories from my younger days...I was named for my paternal grandmother, so I don't mean disrespect, but I would have been happier with a different name, I have to be honest." Sep. 22, 2013:
"My bro is Antonio named after San Antonio which we used to live in but we moved when I was 7. now I'm 10 and my bro is 5. I moved when he was 2. I can't wait for him to grow up! Anyway I'm posting this on every name that sounds like Antonio. Good day to y'all." Jul. 25, 2007:
"Alot of poeple say my name wrong and i have to tell then how to say it. i love my name because there is not alot of poeple with my name. MY NAME IS ANTONIA" Feb. 16, 2007:
"people always say Antonio..they must not be able to tell an o from an a..it gets me mad because sometimes people make fun of it" Jun. 23, 2005:
