"I was born in 1986. My name is Donia. Pronounced: don-knee-uh
Only my nearest family and friends pronounce it correctly. Others just call me Nia. I love having a unique name." Apr. 11, 2019:

"My name is infact Donia 1986, and mine is pronouced (DON-YUH), and although not spelled like that people usually mispronouce it or spell it differently. I never really had bad experiences with my name, just a little teasing here in there when i was younger,ive never met anyone with the same name as me." Dec. 8, 2009:

"Donia is my name but it?s been a little confusing for me while growing up. My family is split in how they pronounce my name; one person says "don-yuh" while the rest say "dun-yuh". I have no idea where the "u" is supposed to be but i suspect it comes from the Turkish name Dunya. While growing up other people have called me "do-knee-yuh whereas nowadays it?s either "don-yuh" or "do-knee-yuh". Aside from my family there are a handful of close friends who call me "Dun-yuh" and write my name as Dunya. I?ve thought about chnging my name since I was 12 and still do. I might or not do it. But probably not since it?ll be quite a bother to anyone who has known me for the past 17 years." Mar. 9, 2020:
"I personally don't like my name because it has always been pronounced wrong. The o is a long sounding vowel, it sounds like "Doan Yuh but mot people don't say it like that I haven't ever met any other Donia. Most people say Don Yuh. I am 79 so I don't expect to meet on other Donia." Jul. 3, 2017:
"I was born June 1, 1980. I Live in VA and have never met another Donia. My father is Donald and mother is Deborah. I have never been sure of the proper pronunciation of my name and that drives me nuts. Can anyone help me with that? I'd like to meet other Donia's from the USA especially from Virginia or close by."

"LOVED IT and you...Tokyo, Italian Vogue and baby powder! We ebnolg together (but in separate beds...like Lucy and Dezi). Think about it, all the shoes your heart could desire..tempting, no?" Apr. 13, 2012:
"My name is Donia too and I am an Indian. It is an unusual name here but I was lucky enough to meet two or three other Donia's. People often confuse my name with Dona and Sonia(which is a common name among Indian women)." Jan. 13, 2012:
"My name is Donia and is pronounced Don-yuh by some and as the Spanish Do?a by others. Although the name is very unusual, it hasn't been hugely problematic for me. In fact, reactions vary a lot, depending on where I am. In arabic countries, people's faces just light up when they hear my name -- apparently it means "world" in arabic and is a very auspicious name. In Brazil, people don't bat an eyelid, since the name sounds just like it is spelt, and there are lots of similar-sounding names there that are quite common (Sonia, Vanya, Tanya etc). In Spanish-speaking countries, however, I'm looked at very strangely, since Do?a is an old-fashioned title of the sort one would use when speaking to your grandmother's best friend. In English-speaking countries I often find myself saying on introduction "Not Donna -- Donia. Like Sonya with a D."" Oct. 12, 2010:
